    I believe that Joe manages volume by increasing the variables of weight and reps, instead of sets

    Thank you man Bryce! Thought I had to do crazy things ! But the thing is that I don’t know how many calories I’m burning so I don’t know if I’m in a calorie surplus or not

    Weigh yourself every week, same day same hour fasted and assess from there, if gaining weight you are in a surplus, if losing weight, you are in a deficit

    I believe that it’s more important to reach muscular failure than the recommended reps, the rep range is something that you should aim for with the weight that you are lifting. If you go over the range, good, next time up the weight, if you are below the rep range, then next time lower the weight. But always go to failure

    How do you have to hold the dumbells and in which angle Joe?

    I believe you can handle the dumbbells in a neutral and in a prone position

    The way that the coaches manage volume is different, theoretically volume is set*reps*weight (the order might be different), the way that they manage to increase volume is by increasing the weight in the ‘equation’ usually. But I let them answer you better

    Thank you very much Joe for the answer, I will try to change the degree of the preacher by adding some weight below of the preacher bench, it’s pretty understandable your point of view about changing the exerciseS and I totally agree with you and I honestly would like to change anything if it was possible for me haha. I will try again the ez curl with a different degree of inclination, and if I wouldn’t find a position that I like i will go with the unilateral db preacher curl. Btw watching your vids i do believe I’m one of those who has issues with a barbell when working out the biceps.
