fqqs is off to a bad start
Default a correct way of progression?

thanks, and my 2nd question:

say my routine says 4x8 reps, same weight



for example on 1st workout:



1 set: 7 reps x 100kg

2 set: 7 reps x 100kg

3 set: 6 reps x 100kg

4 set: 5 reps x 100kg



2nd workout:



1 set: 8 reps x 100kg

2 set: 8 reps x 100kg

3 set: 7 reps x 100kg

4 set: 6 reps x 100kg



3rd workout:



1 set: 8 reps x 100kg

2 set: 8 reps x 100kg

3 set: 8 reps x 100kg

4 set: 8 reps x 100kg



4rd workout (add weight)

1 set: 8 reps x 102kg

2 set: 7 reps x 102kg

3 set: 6 reps x 102kg

4 set: 6 reps x 102kg



etc etc





briefly: add weight when I complete all 8,8,8,8 reps? and even though I can do 2 more reps on 1st set, and 1 more rep on 2nd I do only planned reps, correct?

im asking you because ssome people say it is a bad way, because you could do 2-3 more reps on the 1st set , but you dont do it


for example:

my routine states that I should do 4 sets 10 reps of weighted pullups.

for now my max is (only bodyweight): 9 reps, 7 reps, 5 reps, 5 reps

so should I wait and try to add reps each workout till I get all 10, 10, 10, 10 and then start to adding weight and get sth like 10, 9, 8, 7 and next time 10,10,10,8 etc. and up weight again when i reach 10,10,10,10


is that correct way of progression?
