I have one question - on the BFL work out sheets there are two "High Point" fields under each muscle group. I notice in the book the example shows two different exercises, one only done once in the entire workout.
What's the story on these?
I haven't added this in yet, I've been doing one extra set of the same exercise in it's place (still learning the exercises).
The second field is for a second exercise of the same muscle group. For example, you may choose to Bench Press as your primary chest exercise. When you get to your secondary high-point, you switch to doing Chest Fly's or maybe a decline/incline Bench Press. Just be sure to choose an exercise of the same muscle group. One thing I have done is have a particular exercise be my primary one week and then the next week I would alternate and have that exercise be my secondary and vice versa. This helped me keep from getting in too much of a routine and helps confuse the muscles a bit.
Hope that helps and good luck!!
I've read all Bill Phillips books and watched his Youtube videos, and I remember something about the second exercise for the same muscle group targets the muscle from a slightly different angle, and works the muscle a little differently than the one before it. I just can't remember which of his books it was in or it actually might have been one of his Youtube videos I watched.
Hope that helps :-)
The high point exercises are great and add variety and angles to related muscle groups. I do miss this in my current routine but will return to it on a challenge next year. trying a different type of muscle confusion right now and style.
Thanks everyone, appreciate the help. I will add these into the routine.
It is that slight variation (ie, going from bench press to flyes) where I really feel the burn.
