More from the "expert". Yep, same guy I referred to in my TRX thread. Apparently, he is on my nerves. :lol: (His obnoxious behavior comes through in all his posts... fitness-related or not.) This following quote is an excerpt from his lo-o-o-ng rant about why he hates working out with his girlfriend (or someone he's been dating). It was posted in the form of a long list of criteria, a woman must meet, in order for her to enjoy herself on a date with him, at the gym. Actually, it looked more like a list of criteria she must meet in order for him to enjoy himself with her. At any rate, this is only part of it. The flavor of the list, in its entirety was :blink:. Anyway, back to my original question... why alternate sets between 2 different exercises: Ok, his arrogance aside, If he told me to do that I would tell him: a) uh... by the time I finish dinking around to determine my 10-rep max, I'll have done a few sets. b) I'll choose my weight/sets/reps, thank you. c) and unless you can give me a good reason, for flipping back & forth between a set of the chest exercise and a set of the back exercise, I'll complete all sets of one exercise before proceeding to the next, thank you. eta: and d) bite me, nimrod!
