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?

Yeah, looks good man. Good to see you progressing till you hit the reps and then moving on. Solid.

There are few bad ways of progression. When a set and rep range say something like 4x10, you can pretty much progress how you see fit...as long as there is regular progression involved.

For me personally, on non-super taxing likes likes squats, deadlifts, etc, I like to perform as many reps as possible each set, stopping a set when I feel like I may fail on the next rep.
