    I'm a little confused about this

    The Waterbury Method: Let's Do It!Week 1 Loading: 80% of 1RM or a load you can lift for 6 perfect reps
    Weeks 1-4 Tempo: 10X (one second eccentric or lowering; no pause; concentric or lifting action as fast as possible)
    DAY 1
    Barbell Back Squats
    Sets: 10
    Reps: 3
    Rest: 70 seconds
    A1 Dips
    A2 Bent-Over Barbell or Dumbbell Rows
    Sets: 4
    Reps: 6
    Rest: 60 seconds (between exercise pairings)
    Note: A1/A2 consists of a superset pairing
    B1 Skull Crushers
    B2 Standing Barbell Curls
    Sets: 4
    Reps: 6
    Rest: 60 seconds
    Hanging Leg Raises
    Sets: 4
    Reps: 6
    Rest: 60 seconds between sets



    What does A1 A2 B1 B2 mean?



    is it asking me to alternate between the 2 excercies (combine) them, or to pick one one week, then do another the next?

    Looks similar to all the Men's Fitness 'routines' that have you alternate doing A1 on weeks 1,3,5,7 and A2 on 2,4,6,8 ... but idk.

    And 10 sets of 3 squats at 80% seem like it'd probably make me puke too lol...

    well interesting story... I didn't have any food left at the house and the publix was closed by the time I left the gym, so I decided I would get some Arby's even though I didn't really feel like I could eat anything at the time.

    As soon as I ordered from the drive through and drove up, I started feel nauseaus (sp?) so I even got a plastic bag I had left in my truck ready to puke. I was trying to breath normally, and I almost felt like I had everything under control, I was getting impatient becuase I didn't want to puke at the drive thru window.

    She comes up to the window and says, "do you want any sauce?" and I go "yeah, can I get a bunch of arb (PUKE)" in the bag i had in my lap.

    Waterbury is absolutely awesome.

    Even if his routines look a little weird, they REALLY do work.

    I'm working my way through them.

    I did ABBH1 and I'm not on ABBH2. AFter this I will do TBT fully body routine.

    some people are arguing on his forum of the correct way to do the A1 A2

    all I really wanted to know is if I do them on the same day, or alternate the exercise week to week.

    A1 and A2 is a superset pairing, just like it says in your own post

    What the Stork said

    You superset A1 & A2, so...

    Perform A1
    Perform A2
    rest 60 sec
    repeat
