High Intensity Workout (HIT) Max Pyramid Protocol 9/16/10

Posted by jedimastery on September 22, 2010 at 5:27 AM

Not sure what best way to record the progress but I think Ihave some system down as how to record my progress when doing the Max PyramidHIT. As of now this is how I will record it: (lowest weight-highestweight)/(contractions or “reps”)/(TUL, which I believe is 20 seconds for each contraction/rep)

 

Pulldown: 125-185/9/3:00

Overhead Press: 95/155/9/3:00

Leg Press: 160-240/9/3:00

Forearm grab: 16-78 L=9/3:00  R=9/3:00

Bicep curl: 45-85/9/3:00

Weighted crunch: 0-45/9/3:00

Tricep extension: 40-60/5/1:40

 

This is my first time trying the Max Pyramid High IntensityProtocol. I read about it on here: http://www.bodybyscience.net/home.html/?page_id=798.I have to say it was one of the best workouts I’ve done in a long time,possibly ever. Weighted Crunch I think would have been better if done on amachine, last time I tried on a machine though, just couldn’t get it to workproperly. Tricep extension has lowest reps/contractions because of doing itlast, and was done after I had already done pulldown and overhead press. Thisworkout was done over two days as well, the big three (overhead press, pulldownand leg press) and tricep extension on one day and the other three done fourdays later. Due to schedule changes at work it will be some time until I can doother exercises but I plan on doing chest press, seated row and standing calfraise.

Jesdimastery,

I am only now learning about Max Pyramid and planning to give it a try for two or three months.

Almost four years now since you posted this page, do you have any new info or opinion or suggestions on Max Pyramid that could be of help to those of us getting just now started with this program?

Do you still follow Max Pyramid?
Did you figure out a way to do Max Pyramid and not need a helper?

Thank you very much for this post and for any new input on MP that you can share now.
