Default Upper / Lower Using Myoreps

Lyle,

If someone who is advanced wants to keep volumes on the higher end, and use volume similar to the GBR, could using myo reps be a way to still accomplish this while not being in the gym forever? When I say myo reps I mean doing say 1-2 regular sets with 2-3 minute breaks, and then taking 20 second breaks between a 3rd,4th,5th etc set ?

i.e. Upper day:
Bench Press 3 sets 8 reps (regular)
Fly 2 regular sets, then 3-4 myo reps sets
Lat pulldown 2 regular sets, then 3-4 myo reps sets
Cable row - 2 regular sets, then 3-4 myo reps sets
side raises - 2 regular sets, then 3-4 myo reps sets
bi's/tri's - 2 regular sets, then 3-4 myo reps sets

So,
After Set 1 - 3 minute break
After set 2 - 3 minute break
After set 3 - 20 seconds
After set 4 - 20 second
After set 4 - 20 seconds

I would do the first exercise for main body parts of 6-8 sets as straight sets and then myo rep everything else. I’ve done it as

Chest press 3-4x6-8
Row 3-4x6-8
Fly myo rep
Pulldown myo rep
Lateral myo rep
Tri/Bi myo rep

Whole workout takes me less than an hour.

What LightCrow said. You could even do antagonist paired supersets with the heavy push/pull to save more time.

Even the second compounds with myo reps can get a little wonky, but they're very doable. Just use your best judgement as things can get unstable with certain exercises, muscle recruitment can differ from straight sets, etc.

Also, a single myo-rep set would include the activation set *and* all the subsequent mini-sets. The mini (3-5) sets are not really considered their own sets.

And finally, in the last example in the OP, you have a 3 minute break listed after the second set, which implies the third set is actually going to be full reps and then the myo series comes after this one. I think you'll be happier with how the myo set is traditionally done and what you suggest is probably overkill.

Someone advanced should not be doing GBR so it's a moot point. It's an INTERMEDIATE program and I've never grasped what is difficult to understand about that.

Itís opposite world now. For forever you had guys barely intermediate thinking they needed advanced routines. Now itís guys that are at an advanced stage that still want to progress like an intermediate.

I'm sure you remember when Hunky who was quite advanced said he wanted to do the GBr. And I told him DO NOT DO THIs

And he did and complained that my workout sucked and made his joints hurt.

Umm, dude?

either Knuckols or Isratel has an article on that and all you have to do is lose a ton of progress so you can regain it real quickly.

Oh good ol Hunky I could never forget him. Thought he could still gain slabs of muscle as an advanced natural and went on that GFH dreamer bulk. I wonder if he ever got lean again.
