My question is related (again;)) to waterburys recommondation on progression-sorry, but I don?t get the point.
Thank you again for the platemates link.
I don??t understand,why it is not possible,or less effektive to increase the reps.
Means: when I am doin 6x6 with 85%of 1rpm and the results are 6 6 6 5 5 4
why it is a bad idea to maintain the weight until I get all reps out and then increasing the weight again.
I read 90% of chads articels and the related questions and posts.
Every posts related to my question,he answered,that it is better to lower the weight and increase the weight about 2,5% each work out.
But where is the difference?
Chad also recommend in some of his programms (think its on the abbh1)rep increases-f.ex 10 sets with 3reps of 80%1rpm,next week 4reps of 80%1rpm etc.
When you get stronger (say it is approx.2,5%)consequently it is possible to get one more rep out,or to increase the weight.
I am asking this question because the second method will be much (!!!) easier in a lot of cases.
(F.ex.when I want steady increases of 2,5% for the fixed dummbbells in my gym,I need 8(!) pair of the little hex plates to accomplish this and a calculator-should be BB so difficult???? It will be much easier to maintain the load untill all reps are done)
I hope anyone can help me out-by the way-these 2,5%increases-are they related to the 1rpm, or the weight I am actually using?
(f.ex:100 kg = 1repmax benching-2,5kilo increase
when I am working with 80% means 80 kg-the increase would be 2kg? What is right?)
I will appreciate again any answer-I like scientific BB,(notice my nick)but when you are sitting in the gym with 40 pairs of tiny weigths ,your EMG detectors and your PC to calculate your workout weight precisely about every shitty gramm then it is getting a bit absurd.
