    I'll probably come off as a Mike Israetel fanboy for sharing another one of his videos, but here's a new one that covers this exact topic
    Tldr: it agrees with what people said in this thread, and...

    Noted, thanks!

    With regards to the earlier messages, today I did some targeted aerobic training (elliptical + ab circuits) that I used to do in the past. My conditioning seems to be pretty good...

    Thanks for sharing, this was very interesting! On the practical side, that might imply that mixing up longer and shorter rest period in my workouts might me a good idea. Most of us take shorter...

    Actually after I posted my comment, I remembered I recently watched this video by Mike Israetel on the distinction between different training levels...

    My main goal is hypertrophy, even though I know that strength and hypertrophy are kinda correlated.

    Actually it's good that you brought it up, because I think I have heard this argument before,...

    Yeah man, it happens to everyone! Glad this thread was helpful to someone else!
  • As others pointed out correctly, it's when you...

    As others pointed out correctly, it's when you can't sustain the fast progression of these beginner routines anymore. You'll reach a point where the weights will feel heavy and it will be impossible...

    Interesting; certain days, when my session does not turn out to be as intense and I have enough energy left when I get to the supersets, I might give this a shot. Some variety is always good.
    But as...

    I see. Sounds like they worked well for you.
    I, on the other hand, just drink a ton of coffee daily, gym session or not. Habits picked up after getting through grad school :p

    Right, I did not clarify. Yes, indeed, I've been resting between the supersets. It would be almost impossible otherwise.
    Actually that's kind of what I did recently. Eg. for reverse flies I dropped...
  • Hahah yes! :p

    Hahah yes! :p

    That's great to hear, thanks! I'll only implement them when time is tight.
    I was really struggling to figure out how a superset of triceps+calf raises increases hypertrophy xD

    @sooby

    I see, maybe my shape is not as bad as I feared.

    So in the routine I'm running, Fierce 5 U/L, I end my upper day with 3 supersets of back-to-back bicep curls+reverse flies, 10 and 12...

    Are they supposed to give you better energy boosts without making you jittery or something? I think I've heard this, but was never sure if it's for real or just promotional BS
  • I indeed think I'm getting close to a deload,...

    I indeed think I'm getting close to a deload, which seems to be consistent with what you said.
    Interesting about the 'fatigue' training aspect; I admit I don't know much about it.
  • That makes sense, thanks. I've noticed that, in...

    That makes sense, thanks. I've noticed that, in general, 3-5' is sufficient time for me to rest between large compound sets. But occasionally, like yesterday, I end up needing more.
    I definitely...

    Haha cheers man, your posts are always funny!
    I still remember the one where you said you lifted your dog instead of weights :D
