The rest period is always that of the previous work period, so regardless of whether you go up to 9 reps or repeatedly go up to 4 reps, you are never working more than half of the allotted time. The number of reps performed therefor remain the same. The difference being that by repeatedly going up to only 4 reps, instead some higher number, intensity is kept lower while the volume remains the same- ensuring high volume/low intensity.
This feature ensures that app users unfamiliar with YAYOG are performing Ladders at low intensity, avoiding muscle failure.
Like the Android app, the iPhone app will eventually allow for customized Ladder workouts. We're working hard. Keep the feedback coming!
Quick question, on week 1 I've been able to get 36 reps of Let Me Ups, but it doesn't take the whole 7 minutes, and I'm pretty much at failure at that point.
Should I continue resting and trying to squeeze out reps to finish the 7 minutes, or stop at the goal rep # of 36?
Since this is the last movement of these workouts, I don't really need to "rest" before the next movement, but that's another wrinkle - if this were to happen with one of the earlier movements, would I just add the remaining time as rest before the next movement, or keep trying 1rep sets until time is up?
