Hi guys first post, read from this site for a number of years but never asked a question due to the responses I've seen some people get, getting torn apart for asking newbie questions.
Anyway, I have searched myself this site and others, but failed to find a definitive answer to what i need to know.
When im training in lets say the 8-10 rep range (but any rep range) should I be using the same weight throughout or not.
I try to, but can never stay in that rep range if I do use the same weight.
Here's an example of my last bench press set as an example. 235lbs is my current working weight
Bar only x 20 reps
135lbs x 10
185lbs x 10
235lbs x 10
235lbs x 7
235lbs x 5
235lbs x 5
As you can see, I did 3 warm up sets and 4 working sets. But by using the same weight, ive fatigued and my numbers keep dropping. I take about 90 seconds rest between sets.
Is what ive been doing correct? or how should it be done.
If it helps, I do push/pull, 4 days a week. I have no particular goal ie strength or size, other than enjoying getting away from the pressures of life and getting into the gym.
If you can help in a constructive way, many thanks in advance.
