Q: Is PHUL program for begineers?
Q: How many sets to perform? Program says 2-3 or 3-4 for different exercises?
Q: Which rep range to pick 3-5, 6-10, 8-12 or 10-15?
For example, lets say you can perform bench press for 185×4. Now should you go to 190×3 or 185×5? Both ways you can make progress, so which one should you choose? Here is where the rep range comes in handy. In PHUL workout, you have a range of 3-5 reps for bench press. In previous example, if you can perform 185×4, you should continue to lift 185 lbs until you can do it for 5 reps. Once you hit 5 reps, then you should increase weight. PHUL workout also specifies sets range 3-4. So ideally, you can start with 3 sets and reach 185×5. Then increase to 4 sets of 185×5. And only then increase the weight to 190 lbs.
