  • Straight Sets?

    I was reading the DC training and on some of them, he just says a straight set. So does that mean, you do just 1 straight set then go on to the next exercise? And you don't do no warm-up-type sets right?
    I'm still confused.

      You could do straight sets if you're just starting and haven't yet progressed to rest pause. Otherwise you just do them for things like squats, deads, rows etc.

        Forearms, too. You wouldn't really think you'd straight set forearms, but you do. And goddamn are they painful once you find your weight niche and fail at 15 reps *what most of us aim for*

          Oh.....ok, I get it now. Thanks. So, since I'm just starting, I should just go ahead and do straight sets then?

            DEpends on recovery ability. Some trainees that don't have such a great recovery ability tend to overtrain if they incorporate rest/pause and statics. Straight sets for now would be a good idea until you can see how well your body responds to it.
