    In the potential modificaton, it says day 3, sets X 8. In the initial program it says day 3, sets X 10.

    Which rep range would be most beneficial? 8 or 10?

    Thanks!

    You can pick. Won't make much of a difference. 8s if you want slightly heavier loading.

    Ok I'm a bit lost.

    On this sheet you made it shows day three as being what looks like 10 Sets of <blank> Isn't it suppost to be 3 sets of <blank> (ie 10)

    What sheet? :unsure:

    It is 3 X 10 or 3 sets of 10.

    I don't know why people type it 10 X 3. :scratch:

    Opinion request. I can only do weight 3x a week, Mon-Wed. Is it bad to do this plan that way?

    I should mention that this is the end of my second week doing this and I feel fine. Some minor changes seen already in some areas.

    yes. So 3 days on with weights and 4 days w/o. I am doing triathlon training and cannot fit in the weights anywhere else.

    So Mon-Wed is days 1-3 listed in the beginning of this thread. Thursday I bike in am/run in the PM. Friday- HIIT in am, no PM w/o. Saturday- 2 events back to back (of the three bike/swim/run). Sunday- Long ride and yoga (which I need because of Saturday's HELL)

    So, what do you think?

    Drop it two two workouts a week only. Eliminate the high rep day.

    Then split the two days to Monday for one and Wednesday for the other? Seems reasonable. I will try it. Thank you.

    Wish i could do this. I hate high rep day! Cardio lacking. Especially for lunges- really sucking wind. Any tips?

    The improved conditioning will come with time. Honestly, you just have to keep plugging away at it. High reps, assuming appropriately loading however, are simply never going to be easy. It just comes with the territory.

    But, improved conditioning, from doing the higher reps/shorter rest work, as well as your other conditioning work (HIIT) etc, will go a long way to helping out.
