Is it neccessary to add weight to exercises like dips and chins once you can do a reasonable quantity? I am currently doing ten sets of three reps but to progress couldnt I simply do ten sets of four? or maybe eleven sets?
Is there a cut off point where your body will not grow unless weight is added and increasing volume is pointless?[/quote]
Depends on what your objective is. If you are going for endurance, use set progression and add sets. Your other option is to do pryamids, which I just started, and those create a new kind of difficulty.
Another way to change things up is to change grips for chins and pull-ups.
After you find you’re doing a lot of volume, add some additional weight. If you goal is just strength, do less reps and more sets.
