I do data bruh!
I am a math geek, but motor recruitment...well, I just move iron one more rep at a time. CNS stimulation plus heavy ass weight equals maximal recruitment. That's the only formula I know.

I like this setup Steve, current I'm running something similar to yours, which as you stated allows for adjustment on the fly. Actually looking at your squats today the scheme looks something similar to Chad Smith's Juggernaut Method. Especially with the last set going all out (8+ reps). We should have a meeting of the minds and formulate a program! What you think?

This looks good. I do this with conditioning with strongman implements and barbell complexes. I start off with 1 rep 1st set then add a rep until I can't no more or go all out usually by the 5th or 6th as you planned. Also it allows you to shut it down if you not feeling it.

For heavy weight 85% or above I probably would just do 4 working sets, 1rep,2rep,3rep,MAX reps just not to do too many sets and burn out, but mainly for Squats & Deadlifts.

Sounds good to me. I have been spending the last year trying to formulate something that fits my needs, allowing me to change sets on the the main lift on the fly without causing me to completely do a different workout.

This, or something like this might just do it.

Good point Tony. I actually was considering this yesterday but decided to try 4 ramped sets...

I like the plan but I am OLDER than you!!! You can keep your strength for quite a while if you avoid injury...
