    Anyone try it?
    Lately I've been doing it for wide grip pullups.
    Instead of doing straight sets of 12, 12,10,8 etc... you do 12, then 6 the following set, back to 12 etc.
    I started doing that last week with the pullups. Did 12,6,12,6,12,6,10,5 for a total of 69.
    This week I totaled 80 reps in the same 8 sets by alternating 12 and 8 throughout.

    I'm positive I read it somewhere. If anyone remembers...link?

    i haven't bothered with the gravatron yet. i'm going to attempt to increase by at least 1 a week on my first set and hopefully each subsequent set. however, it seems like it's remaining the same week to week :wtc:
