Yeah, okay that’s what I was leaning towards, though I still intend to take things somewhat slowly…injuries slow you down more in the long run.

One more thing. Has anyone played with rep speed and found which produces better strength gains between slower and faster? Also, when doing sets is it more beneficial if, say I’m doing pushups, I take each set to failure (or one before approx) or if I do more even sets, such as 20/20 /20. I guess essentially it’s just the first one or two sets in practice, eventually it will hit failure before that, but I was wondering if it isn’t better to go all the way on the firsts sets too, since isn’t that last rep where the muscle is most stimulated?

Thanks for the reply. And thank you Al for all the information and website! Any chance you’ll be bring the PCC to Canada, or is that too close to home?
