what is better for building size/strength?
increasing weight with every set, or decreasing?
Increase that shit.
You could stagger. increase, then go down.
the reason i ask is because there's some fitness show thing on the internet where some game name Milos says you should do a set of 6-8 at pretty much the most you can, then 6-8 with a little less, and 6-8 with still less than that.
i've been doing the increasing sets, so i was just wondering if his ideas are better than that or not.
yeah i saw that on the legs-feature on www.thefitshow.com
i believe it's called a burn-out set
he doesnt mean for you to do that every set.
Drop sets and burn out shit is to be done sparingly for the most part. The best range for strength in my opinion is to work at about 4 reps at around 85% 1RM for a good 5-8 sets. I like to work up to a 1 rm by increasing the weight and then base my volume work of that 1rm for the day.
