    hi Joe…

    just wondering… from progressive overload tracking for something like arms you focus on the Swiss bar close grip and preacher curl but what about the giant sets? are you really tracking those weekly or just trying to hit failure within those ranges with the same weight for the rounds you do?

    thank you!

    Amazing. Thank you for the response…so essentially try and hit failure..ish within the ranges set out…
    One last follow up…lower weight slightly if after for example 2 rounds I’m failing before the ranges set out? Or just grind out some partials with the same weight?

    Thanks for the response again…the app and knowledge is unreal

    Thanks for the follow up. So could a scenerio be in a 8-20 range I’m trying to fail..ISH around 8 and hit the higher end with a drop set or I can kinda choose how I want to hit the higher end either its lower weight next round ?
