High reps for me are 3.
I'm switching to a different rep/set program next week so this was kind of a 'see where I'm at with RDL's day'. My back is still a concern so I really can't pull from the floor so these will have to do. But you're right about the reps. When I was a younger man I used do these in the 5-8 rep range.
Push press: 95x5; 135x3; 155x1; 165x1; 175x1; 180x1; 185x1. Felt weak as **** today.
Safety bar squat: 130x5; 150x3; 170x2; 190x2; 205x2; 215x2
Bent over barbell row: 135x5; 155x3; 175x3; 195x3; 205x3. Form blew on the last set.
Weighted incline sit ups: 45x8; 50x8
Back extensions: 2 @ 30x8
I'm going to start a version of the Starr 5x5 on Monday. More reps, lighter weight and cycle back up again. I get to do curls and tricep extensions on Friday's. Cool! Haven't done those in a few years.
