    I noticed on the Monday workout, and some others, that for example it will say 5 sets for incline bench press, but only give 4 sets of rep ranges and then on the DB Flye it says 3 sets, but has 4 rep ranges-can you explain that to me? Thanks!

    The rep ranges are by week. So if it says 3 sets, week one the rep ranges is 10-12. Week two the rep range for each of those 3 sets is 8-10, and week 3 6-8, week 4 back up to 8-10…

    Hope this helps! ☺

    In cases like that, I have been doing the last set of reps repeatedly until the sets are done. For example, if its 5 sets of squats and rep range is 10-12, I would do 12,11,10,10,10….

    OMG-that makes total sense Jenean! I see that now-thanks! I feel like I need to read the program everyday after training because every time I do, another light bulb goes on 🙂 I read that before I started the program, but didn’t process it at the time 🙂

    Thanks! I’m a dingbat 🙂 Need to re-read the program multiple times apparently 🙂

    I misread it too! I was doing 12, 10-12, 8-10, 8 lol & upping weights. Duh next time I will re-read and/or put glasses on. At least we realised in week 1 & not at the end!

    That’s the idea 🙂

    Ok so in rxenakis’ example you increase weight for each set while staying in the range (ie10-12) for the week? I, too, misunderstood the rep ranges for each set noted! At least it’s only the first week!! Duh!!!
