What you could do is is pyramid to it.
For me with Dips.
Rep x 25-45
Then I’ll begin weighted dips
15 x 45lb
8-10 x 90lb
3-5 x 135lb
1-2 x 180lb
1/2 reps for negatives
and continue til failure.
Or you could do something similar to westside.
8-10 per set til you cannot.
Then add incremental weight and do 3 and keep adding weight each set and doing 3.
When you can’t do 3 reps per weight increase (per set)
Switch to 1 for maybe 1-3 more sets.
This is more fatiguing and requires more muscle endurance and focus. But at the same time you’ll be warmed up and have flushed your muscles with blood.
If you can get comfortable with either, you’ll have a better feel and can switch to just 1-2 warmup sets of 10 and then have a better idea of what weights to jump up to 1-5 reps for heavier low rep sets.
Hope this input helps.
Actually I was looking at the dips and thats not as comfortable a pyramid.
Like Lunges just each set add on 2.5-5 or 5-10 lbs and climb upwards with the pyramiding sets. Once you hit the heaviest, then ratchet back down and do another set at like 1/4th -1/2 the max weight attained and do 10 and squeezeeeeeee.
** use the warmup set or sets to gauge how your muscle feels and get a better idea how much energy you are bringing to the table ~ then you can get a better idea of where to start. Where you go is up to you, enjoy!
