Afternoon fellow lifters,
After spending a whole lot of time reading this forum recently I keep reading about not always chasing weight in progressive overload for hypertrophy.
Personally I have a rep range (say 8-12), once I’m hitting 12 on the first set and 8 on the last o increase weight. This is easy progressive overload. But I’m aware I can’t do this forever and I’m read quite a few people state that they don’t chase the weight increase.
But I can’t figure out what that really means or looks like. How do drop sets, cluster sets, changing TUT, iso holds etc work in a progressive overload as once you done them don’t you increase the load?
Sorry if this seems stupid to ask but I’m still chasing an increase of weight for hypertrophy but know I soon won’t be able to increase reps or weight at some point soon (as I’m reaching my pre lock down weights I used to hit now).
Thank you all
