Cooldown sets, good or bad idea?
Current workout regimen. Just including sample weights so you get an idea what I'm benching. 2x8 warm up at 105 lbs. 5x5 work sets at 175 lbs (2-2.5 min rest). 3x8,7,6 cooldown (1 min rest) at 135 lbs.
Are the cooldown sets a good or bad idea?
From what I'm gathering information wise... if you're training for strength, it's about being able to consistently lift heavier weights through progressive overload, which is why 5x5 at a consistent weight is good. For body building it's about time under tension, so working out to exhaustion is good.
Do extra cooldown sets impede strength development (like does the muscle need to recover soon after that 5x5), or can I get the best of both worlds with the extra sets, since I already have my 5x5 workset in for strength, and an extra work-till-exhaustion for bodybuilding purposes?
Also lemme know if I'm just talking out of my ass.
