My August Training - Century Sets - 100 rep workouts

I have recently been thinking about low weight high rep training and decided to do it for a month. I am going to do 1 set to 100 reps. Century sets as called by some.

Yeah, I know. There is no way that using a 45 pound bar for 1 set can lead to any sort of gains. Well, as I tell people all the time there is no way of knowing without trying. Well maybe accept for trying crack or jumping off a skyscraper without a parachute.

The plan starting out will be to do full body work with at least three exercises. I will do a lower body exercise and upper body push and pull exercises. I have also toyed with doing a bodybuilding style workout.

Full Body Sample:

Bent-Over Row

Bodybuilding Sample (pick three per day):

Romanian Deadlifts
Leg Extension
Leg Curls
Calf Raises

Face Pulls
Lat Pulldowns
Straight Arm Pulldowns
