I dont know if it really would be classified as HIT, but im following a plan that is similar to Jason Ferrugia’s workout. The basic premise of everything is only 2 sets per exercise, in the 5-10 rep range, and always shooting for a PR.
I may do one warm-up set, and then jump into things. As far as working sets go, I have a few questions.
1.) If i set a PR on the first set, should I still do the second set?
2.) Say im aiming for 5-10 reps, and the first set is too light. So I can do 10 reps with certainty. Do i go all the way to 10, then increaes the weight on the next set, and see what I can do. Or do I stop around 7, so that I can get more reps with the heavier weight on the next set?
3.) The way Ive been doing things so far, is to go with a weight I think is right, and do as many reps as possible. If I get 10 reps, I increase the weight on the next set. If I dont get 10 reps, I keep the weight the same, and do as many reps as I can on the second set.
Is this a good way to do things?
4.) Otherwise, I was thinking I could do my first set “heavy” and shoot more for 5 reps, and then decrease the weight and go for 8-10 on my second set.
Thank in advance everyone.
