    Default 'Beyond Bodybuilding' question

    On page 225-226, a curling procedure is outlined. When you move up the pins and start with a new set, will the weights be the same, or should they be relatively heavier? I'm assuming that the paritals will be heavier as it goes up, but it doesn't specify in the book. Advice? If it raises, how much is typical?

    Thanks,
    wv

    As i read it you go from useing bar weight and add 5-10lbs. each set for the next two sets.
    Your starting weights will depend on how strong you already are.
    You raise the saftey bars one pin hole and repeat the process starting at bar weight again and the same weights you used on the previous pin level.
    Add a new pin height level every 2 or 3 workouts.
    This can be diffrent depending on the rack your working on the distance of the holes.They can vary with diffrent racks from 1"to 5"or more.
    IMO the more the holes are apart the longer you would want to stay at cetain hole heights before adding new ones to your workout.
    Ideally the more holes in the rack the better.

    Thanks. I was unsure, since 'partials' usually means you use a heavier weight as the pins go up (think partial dl's or squats...). Appreaciate the help!
