    Recently I've cut back on a lot of the "extra" stuff I was doing. After I complete the AP routine I do the squat, bench, bor and op with at 115% for 3 reps as you suggested. So far the results are...

    When I fail to reach my required reps on the last set is it appropriate to do another make up set to get the volume in or do I just fail it and move on to the next exercise?

    One other thing I can think of that may be contributing to my failed sets - I've recently started to do weighted chins (5@45#, 3@45#, 5@25#, 5@25#, 5@bw and 7@bw). I've been doing this on my cardio...

    Also, is it normal if I'm cutting to reach the 13% BF target that I notice I'm failing to complete some of my heavy day lifts? For example I was marginally able to complete my squat (was very...

    Ok. For the slow bulk to BMI of 24 - is that as easy as looking at a BMI chart for my height and hitting the target weight? I'm 5'10 and most of charts say I will be around bmi 24 at 167 lbs or is...

    I'm very glad I asked the question. Couldn't figure out why I was failing to complete the OHP and SLDL but the fact I was doing the 115% after each final set rather than at the end would make...

    When I'm doing the 3 reps of 115% does it matter if I do it right after each respective exercise or should I wait until after the very last portion of AP for the day which is calf raises?

    Thanks again Night for your suggestions.

    I'm finally making some progress with some of the lifts I was stalling at on the AP program.

    OK. I have been doing the 115% 3 reps on the bench/squat/row as you suggested. I definitely seem some progress and also experiencing some "good feeling" soreness the next day. Should I limit the...

    One quick additional question. I added the ez bar curl a few cycles ago to my AP program (after 6 cycles) in addition to the upright row. I typically do 1 set of 8 and 1 set of 6 (to failure). Is...

    I really appreciate you help!

    When I ask any personal trainers in my area I get a blank look when I relate my questions to the AP routine. They seem to only offer the "whatever feels good to...

    Thanks that is helpful.

    My reasoning for adding another medium day is because at 8 cycles some of my lifts are stalling (squat, op, bench).

    I'm about 170 lb 5'10" BF=16-17%. I'm eating...

    I've been doing the AP program for about 8 cycles now and I do like the routine. Just wanted to ask a what if question - Can you just do another medium day rather than the light day or is there a...
