I have just read a very interesting Article where he says something about progresing weight.
he says instead of moving up in tiny increments all the time by adding 2.5kg plates he says to use 10kg and 20kg plates.
The idea is to keep on that weight untill you "own it" so if you pressing 40kg, for 5 reps, dont move up untill you can do higher reps easily with it, then make the jump to a heavier weight.
I think this way might be slower to add strength and size, but, if you do it this way won't you get the best of both worlds? strength and endurance - and wont it be healthier for you in the long run?
so you stay with the weight from low reps to high reps.
You almost get a small deload period with the higher reps.
Im going to try this for myself and see how it works.
At the moment I can press 40kg for 8 - 7 - 6.
I'm not going to change the weight untill I can can do 3 x 20 then I will move up to 50kg as I think jumping to 60kg is too big a jump. but it depends how I feel after I've carried this out.
Does this make sense to anyone or have I just written a load of double dutch?
Whats your thoughts on this?
