Should i add light days

Discussion in 'General Fitness' started by thats the bottom line!, Apr 16, 2005.

  1. I have been lifting for 4 years now and have gotton fairly good result
    with few injurys just the odd ach and pain.My goal has always been
    maximine strenght and a little size. I have always used the standard
    pyramid method,you no ending with low reps and heavy wieghts(end at
    around 4 reps). Anyway what I was wondering was should i change my
    routine and have some light days like everyone is telling me to do, or
    keep the routine i use currently and still have succes with? The
    Question is, will i get injured in the long run.

    No, or yes. Why mess with success.
    Yes, usually everyone sustains an injury of some sort eventually. Isn't
    necessarily correlated with light or heavy days (IMHO).
