Have a quick question.
I'm currently on a program that has a 5 set, 12/10/8/6/15 rep scheme for the bigger lifts.
In the information about the program, it states that if you are able to hit all of your reps in the low rep set, you should increase weight on all of your sets.
My question is what if you aren't hitting the rest of your reps?
For example, let's say I'm on Bench press, and between each set I'm adding 10 lbs.
My final reps may be: 12/8/6/6/12
What do you do?
I feel like this is a muscle endurance issue, so when I stop progressing I may switch over to just straight 4 set/10 reps for a few weeks to build that up, but what would you do now?
Increasing the weight on all sets will probably only make it harder to hit my high rep sets, but I rarely fail on my low rep/heavy weight set. I don't want to stop because I keep increasing the weight I'm pushing.
