    I don't calculate the weight either, I just choose random plates and lift them for random reps.

    out.

    I countdown backwards though. So if I am going for 5 reps, I count from 5 to 1. Helps me focus and really grind out the last few reps.

    I usually find the closest person and ask them to pick the weight for me based on looking at my sick muscles.

    lol i sometimes do this too. If it's over 5 reps i also count in increments of 5 sometimes. So i'll count to 5 and then i start from 1 again

    I guess if you take your sets to failure you don't need to but yeah... if you don't...difficult to measure progess.

    It's easier for me to track strength increases when I count reps. I always count to 8, and my last set is always til failure (before 8 reps).

    I also throw in a high rep scheme one time per month (15-20), so yes I count.

    Heres a look at my latest log.

    Flat db - more than a few @somewhat heavy, few@ heavy, not many @ really heavy
    incline flys - pretty heavy@ 20ish, same@ more than 10

    .... you get the idea.
