In the Practical Programming book, you recommend intermediate trainee to try 5RM or 3RM or even 1 RM every week. I'm guessing that you meant something like week 1: 5RM, week 2: 3RM, week 3: 1 RM, repeat week 1, etc. You said that this helps trainee to stay unstuck. What is the reason?
How would you compare that approach with 5RM until plateau, and then drop to 3RM until plateau, and then drop to 1 RM until plateau?
