Rest Pause Set Progression


#1

my progressive overload is 6-10 rep range in first set, so whenever I hit 10 reps in first set, i increase weight in next session. after first set, many rest pause set of 30-45 sec and push any reps before 1 rep failure. total reps will be 4 x number of rep from first set.

Eg, when I manage to lift 7 reps in first set, then my total rep will be 4 x 7 = 28 reps.

100kg x 7, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1

next few weeks, hit 10 reps, so total reps will be 40 reps.

100kg x 10, 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2. next session 102.5kg.

is it good? or I just stick with conventional sets?

Try it and see if it works for you.
