I honestly love Fortitude trainings muscle rounds. I was a DC 💯 my whole life but then my body started breaking down. Not just from lifting, but college ball, mma, BJJ. I can’t realistically take a dumbbell or some machine to the point of trying to meet god for 16-20 RP reps anymore without paying for it in pain.
But the Muscle rounds, hitting a weight with ONE soul breaking failure point, and previously accumulated volume with the 2-3 prior “rounds”, I love.
And honestly….training the way you will go “all in on” is the best way. You like 5x15 leg press, 4x12 hacks, 3x15 leg extensions, 3x20 lunges on “quad day”’ go for it.
I rather hit a top set back off on SLDL, a muscle round on leg press, a MR on hacks, and a 4x10 on leg curls and go home. and focus on adding 5lbs across the board in 4/5 days.
Going full tilt on a “less optimal” program wins every time over “half ass but perfect programming.
Agree totally...LOVE fortitude. I don't use it exactly but did for many years and now am using a 3-4 day a week full body routine. One day is a heavier focus on upper or lower with more "pump" or muscle round type work on the other half and then I just switch it each workout. It's kind of wild I'm 25 years into this but really have gravitated towards full body which I know many would find odd.
