Geoff's Programming notes for RAVAGE:

Who is Ravage for?

• RAVAGE is for intermediate level lifters to maximize hypertrophy using a 6x/week split

• I don’t recommend RAVAGE for beginners who don’t have 1-2 years of solid training already, probably better to only be in the gym 3-4 days a week at that stage.

How many sets to do?

• 2-3 sets of something is probably the most common set range I write for custom plans. Start on the low side of that, and do the third set when you feel like you are recovering well. Can always autoregulate and go back down to 2 sets. If you’ve found you respond better to higher volumes in the past, 3-4 sets or even 3-5 might be viable especially for movements that are easier on the body.

• Many exercises are done in supersets, which means you alternate between the two exercises. You can do these supersetted with minimal rest if you want, or rest between each movement. I prefer to rest to ensure set quality.

How to progress on weights?

• Use a double progression model whenever you can, that’ll be the simplest way. Double progression, also known as an "evolving rep range" is where instead of doing typical 5 sets of 5 reps, you might try to get 5 sets of 4-6 reps. When you can get six reps on all sets, you add the smallest amount of weight that you can, which should reduce the reps that you can get. Rinse and repeat.

• You could use step loading for the smaller movements like lateral raises, or perhaps progress in range of motion on the chest supported row variations. This is where you stick with the same weight for longer than you really need to, before jumping up later.

How to do "failure + partials" sets?

• How to perform "failure + partials" sets. The goal is to pick a weight where you'll fail a few reps before the rep target, and then do partial reps (attempting full range of motion but failing). For example, if a failure + partial set has a target 12-15 reps, find a weight that you can take to failure for 8-12 reps, then add 2-3 reps with as much range of motion as possible.
