  • Ladders?

    Anyone ever heard of ladders? Where u take a weight, say135 for incline bench... And do one set every minute on the minute and add a rep each minute... Minute one, one rep. Minute two, two reps. Minute three, three reps... And so on.... Would it be effective for assistance at a certain percentage? I powerlift and had a guy at my gym introduce them to me... Wanted an opinion, and also wanted to know if this is something new, or if it existed already. Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with these... but it seems very time consuming, and I don't see how/why it would be any more effective that any number of other assistance work options.

      Ladders are not new and can be a fun change of pace to an assistance move every now and then

      We typically use them on the GHR, starting at 5 and going to 15, if you can make it back down to 5, you are very strong

      Ladders are also popular with chin/pull-ups
