I have a quick question so Ill try and make this short and sweet.
Im doing an upper/lower split and ive learned not to worry about what the scale says because your weight can vary so much. SO, the “best way” to judge strength is to continually put more weight on the bar (I think we all can agree with that).
now for my question: I do 3 sets per exercise. I add weight each set. so db bench for example. ill do 65x15, 70x12, 75x10.
so the next time I go to the gym and do db bench I would like to either do more reps or add more weight for similar reps. would it make more sense in terms of judging strength by doing 3 sets of the SAME weight (like 3 sets with 65lbs or w/e) or should i continue adding weight and track my reps that way?
my gut is telling me it doesnt really matter but it might be easier to judge by keeping weight the same.
sorry if that was long haha. thanks for the help!
