Is it kosher to talk about CC on this forum?
I've thought about this and like the idea of it but have wondered what would be the best way to go about it? Maybe one day by the book and a second day work on a harder step, or maybe a few reps of a harder step before or after the regular work? What would be a good way to implement it?"You’ll hit the progression standards easier if you “cheat” and practice the hardest variation you can manage for a few reps than if you just keep loading up on the volume and later move to a harder variation"
Paul Wade explains it as a double progression type approach. As the exercise gets harder, the reps get lower. Maybe not as direct as the 1-5 reps approach but the idea of "joint prep" and rehab steps has a high priority in CC."I was always a little confused with CC. If your trying to build strength I thought you stuck with 5 reps and below. Some of the progressions have you do 20 before moving on."
