    Hey Joe
    I have had the habit for the past couple months to actually increase weight(or keep the same) between 1st and 2nd working set
    So i am not doing a top,back off
    Is there anything wrong with increasing weight from 1st to 2nd working set
    Thank you

    Yes understood
    I have tried and noticed that if i train in the 5-8,i don’t really control the weight the way i would on a 8-10,i feel that i don’t stimulate,contract the given muscle as much as i can
    I am not saying it doesn’t work,just doesn’t work well for specifically
    So the 8-12 has worked great
    I usually perform the 1st set to failure for 10-12,rest 2-3 even 4 min(depends on body part) then increase the weight(depends on the muscle) and perform a set to failure for 8-10
    What do you think of this programming?

    I do that because it prepares me mentally for my 2nd set which is the heaviest
    Is more a phycological thing rather than a muscle thing
    Understood your point tho
    Thanks for the reply
