Double Progression

Say you are working within the 6 to 10 rep range for a major lift.

Start with 2 sets. When you can perform 10 reps for both sets, add in a third set. When you can perform 10 reps on all 3 sets, add weight to the bar, and drop back down to 2 sets.

You could also work up to 4 sets of 10.

This style injects a little variety into each workout, and is indirectly a form of periodizing volume.
