Just wanted to get people’s opinions on the following:
Do you consider total volume lifted or total reps per set more important to manipulate in a routine?
Let me explain what I mean - recently I have been doing volume work but instead of say doing 6 sets of 2 reps with 85% of my 1rm ill say the goal is 12 reps by any means possible with a particular weight which at the moment has been between 85 - 90% of my 1RM (I remember Jim Wendler saying he does this with his clients). I like this way of doing this especially with a partner because its a good competition to see who can get to the goal in fastest time. I suppose its really just a variation on the density method.
Does anyone else do this or people more regimental in sticking to a prescribed number of reps per set?
Cheers in advance
