  1. Good work. I’m really considering switching to the 12 rep routine like you have so that hypertrophy is happening every week. Only thing stopping me is a nagging doubt that I would just be doing it to get out of a rut on Pushups and Pullups and a fear that the extra reps may help me in future steps. Must have a long think about it.

    • The idea of toiling away on HP’s into the 20s rep range when I could say I have hit 12 now lower to the bar to make it harder appeals to me especially if the excess reps don’t add any extra strength. What thought process did you go through before diverging from the routine which may help me come to a decision? Hope I’m not just being impatient deep down!

      Thanks
