    Quick question. I read an article on Charles Poliquins website that said let the reps dictate the load every set.

    It said that if you have a rep range of say 3×6-8 reps and you can get 9 reps on the first set, increase the weight by 5 pounds for the second set. 

    If you get between 6 and 8 on the 2nd set keep that weight. 

    If you get 9 again increase 5 more pounds for the 3rd set. 

    Ex:225×9      230×8      230×7

    How do you compare this to straight sets of less intensity of say 3×8 all with same weight?

    Ex:225×8       225×8      225×8

    Thank you
