    I’ve had lots of trouble with that also. I call it dead leg syndrome.
    They just feel weak and rubbery. I don’t even train hard compared to most of you guys.

    Dead Legs. Not soreness. What to do.

    Hi,

    I am sure I read about this somewhere, but I cant seem to find anything valuable.

    The settings for the assistance exercise can be change in the settings if you prefer a % base setup. Personally, I prefer to manually manage and update them myself.

    I have spent 3 hours training my left bicep, but after that the beer bottle is too heavy and I have to use a can instead.

    Yeah, I just use the bar, but I go at a higher speed to properly warm up the body.

    My basic routine is
    Quick stretching, mainly to stretch my shoulders and arms.

    I don't think you can do a compound exercise justice in 10 minutes without ending up hurting yourself. It takes that long just to warm you up.

    More power to you then,

    I don't think I would last very long doing 2 / 531 in in a row.

    I like it and for full body, I think the number of exercises is good.

    I just don't see why you are running two 531's in the same workout.

    Why not do 531 BBB instead, plus your other exercises....
