    Hey guys,

    I'm interested in trying reverse pyramid training. I used it a looong time ago but now realize I didn't do it properly, so I'm planning on making a workout routine based on that method.

    As I'm not too familiar with this method, I was wondering if anyone of u have anything to say about the following:

    1. Can RPT be used while cutting? (I've come across different opinions on the internet when it comes to this, that's why I'm asking)

    2. Should one rest or not between sets when using RTP? I'm asking cos I see guys at my gym using this method but they're NOT resting between sets, only between exercises. Everything I read about this method says u should give ur muscles at least 2-3 minutes rest though, so I'm intrigued, especially as the guys that don't rest at my gym (there's two of them) both have the most amazing bodies, they're both truly ripped...

    Now I'm just hoping for someone to enlighten me icon_smile.gif

    Turn a pyramid upside down and balance on top while doing yoga poses.

    That's reverse pyramid training, right? icon_razz.gif

    I think that's when you stuff brains back up your nose and get your guts back out of the jar.

    I do not use this but it seems the chance for injury would be high but if you are determined then rest between sets but maybe not for so long. Experiment to see what works for you. You are young so have plenty of time plus your body already looks quite fine and defined, truly ripped as you call it.
