Pyramid Lifting Question
I posted this in another thread, but realized I could have asked you as well. So here goes: What are the benefits of utilizing the entire pyramid scheme using progressively heavier and then back to lighter weights-- 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 10 reps, 12 reps vs. either going JUST UP or JUST DOWN? I have heard that each of these has DIFFERENT benefits, but when googling, I can't find the specifics of what the different benefits actually are. I am referring to Cathe's Pyramid workout where you have the option to do all of the reps using the whole pyramid, or the premix options of either going JUST up, or JUST down the pyramid. I wish that Cathe would address what the benefits are of each way!
