    Isolation exercises progression..

    I tried searching but could not get a proper answer.

    Question about isolation exercises - this is for fierce 5. Program Says upper body movements to increase by 5lbs per week.

    Also says if you fail two workouts in a row, reset to 15% below the current weight.

    For bicep curls, it says do 2 x 10

    Let’s say someone lifts the following

    Week 1: 20lbs set 1: 10 reps, set 2: 10 reps
    >>> Increase weight by 5lb to 25lbs
    Week 2: 25lbs got set: 1 8 reps, set 2: 6 reps (failed on set 1 and 2 both for two workouts in a row)
    >>> reset or what?
    Week 3: go back down to 20lbs? And Stop at set 1: 10 reps and set 2: 10 reps ?


    Or keep grinding 25lbs and try to get more reps each workout?

    What do you do?
    **^^ Work hard AND more importantly, work smart ^^**

    From what I've read in the original thread, the isolation lifts are just fluff that he put in because people would do these lifts regardless.

    I personally deload if I fail twice in a row like the program states. I usually do those lifts close to failure so ab work to failure and then curls to failure.

    I don't have exerience on fierce 5, but i think as long as you can lift a weight with proper form, there's no need to go lighter.
    Just make it so you struggle on the 6th rep or so on set 3 and 4. Progressive overload is the key.
    There's no way you can always increase 5 lbs every week. Just do what you can and lift as heavy as possible with perfect form.
