    Default The Matrix training system by Dr Ron Laura

    I remember this being promoted in the Bodybuilding Mags of the late 80s and early 90s. I wasn't sold on it and only tried it once or twice but I did by the Book, just incase it was some great innovation (back late 80s I thinks). It did fade into obscurity pretty quickly though lol.

    The Matrix system had you doing:

    1) 5 full reps
    2) 5 bottom half reps
    3) 5 top half reps
    4) 5 full reps

    being one set. (I had to Google it as I'd forgotten the exact reps structure, so I hope this is correct). https://muscleevolution.co.za/the-ma...aining-system/


    I think even an old fart like @Shrek doesn't remember it, so wondering if any other oldies remember it?

    Can't remember it.
    Similar to the 21's that was heavily promoted a few years back.
    7 bottom half reps, 7 top half reps and the 7 full reps.

    I actually remembered the Matrix as 7s, but must have been confused. That's why I needed to Google it to refresh my mind.

    I didn't read the Book, but I'm guessing its a further form of splitting, not just individual muscles but different parts of each muscle.
