but Il plan to do it per workout, meaning:

monday = 25 reps/30 sec rest/2 sets for all exercises for the slow twitch muscle, then

thursday = 10 reps/1 min rest/ 3 sets for all exercises for the fast twitch muscle fibers.

3. 25 reps/30 sec rest/2 sets for all exercises for the slow twitch muscle,
Thanks for the suggestion..but do I need to include the "3 to 5 reps/2 min rest/ 3 sets" ? I thought that the 10 reps has already strength gains? I worry that if I include that in my program, it will lessen the frequency to train my slow twitch and fast twitch muscle..


Thanks..
