I would just encourage you C&P guys to use your instinct and natural training tendencies, and don't be afraid to play around with rep/set schemes. One of the valuable things I have learned over the years about my body is that I prefer training a certain way on certain exercises.
And then once you find the parameters of a lift and muscle group that you like to train within, step outside of them once in a while. You will learn something new either way. You might find that mentally or physically you now respond differently to a different approach, or you may find that "stepping outside your comfort zone" only reinforced the zone you are currently in.
I hope some of this makes sense. I haven't had my coffee yet, and am typing in dangerous territory.
This year I decided to step out of my comfort zone on heavy lifts. I made it a goal to try for 20 reps. While I did not hit that goal, I learned several valuable things about how my body responds. I now know that deadlift sets of 3+ reps really help with my pulling strength. And I now know that my bench press does not respond best to this type of approach.
I would encourage you to keep playing around. They say that children learn more in play then they do in school. I think this is the same for lifters.
