I’m starting to lift the same weight for my first lift for 3 sets after warming up/ramping up to my working weight. I used to toy with adding a few pounds on the 2nd and 3rd set but I am not sure if I know what the fuck I am doing. My numbers are going up but I still don’t think I’m hitting it hard enough.
Todays Flat Bench was 225 for 5 reps for 3 sets. Afterwards for Incline DB I didn’t do straight sets. I did 75 for 10, 80 for 8, and then 95 for 5.
Can anyone point me in the right direction of when to not use this approach, or when to add some smaller plates to the first set?
