    if the kid took two weeks off from the gym and came back fresh and lifted light the first two weeks back then stepped it up he would get the same results. Sticking points are 99% mental or overtrained, so basically any kind of change will net a result

    I have never heard of doing that.

    The lowest set I do is sets of 10 x 50 pounds less than my current max, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1 x my current max.

    And try to increase it that way.
