    I’m trying to interpet this:

    … Just use a lighter barbell for the box step ups. Then rest 2-3 min stretching and repeat 3 more times. Use mountain boots for all. Repeat couplet 4 times

    So is that 4 sets (4 steps + 4 push-ups) X 4 or 16 sets (4 steps + 4 push-ups) X 16 ?

    Thanks

    Austin;

    4 sets of 4 repetitions of step ups. Between each set do the push ups. You end up with 16 total reps of steps ups in this workout.

    Scott based on the description in the training plan I’m not clear.

    So for example if I am in week 3 of Max Strength the plan says to do 5 sets, so I have been doing the following:

    Set 1
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    Set 2
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    Set 3
    4 step up
    4 push ups

    Set 4
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    that is one couplet which I would then repeat this 4 more times, for a total of 80 reps for each exercise.

    But based on your description I feel I’ve been doing it wrong and should be doing the following:

    Set 1
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    Set 2
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    Set 3
    4 step up
    4 push ups

    Set 4
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    Set 5
    4 step ups
    4 push ups

    For a total of 20 reps for each exercise in week 3.

    Can you please confirm which is the correct way?

    thanks!

    Set is:
    4 reps of step ups
    4 reps of push ups

    So you are definitely doing it wrong.
