When bulking is there a difference between doing sets with increasing weight with decreasing repetitions, and decreasing weight with increasing repetitions? Which way is better for growing?

ive read that pyramiding upward in weight and downward in reps helps with the strength...alot of power lifters use that style....a freind of mine who was a champion here in hawaii believes that 80 %of your max for high reps gets to your inner tissues as well as outer and therefor builds volume...

Change it up. Keep your body guessing. Bigkev is a major advocate of exactly the opposite, and look at him. He pyramids down...starting at low reps such as 4-6-8-12...Although I believe we convinced him to give his joints a break and try higher reps for the pump.

when pyramiding up i.e. 6/8/10/12 you're supercharging your nervous system with the heavier reps and the following reps will be easier.
charles poliquin is a big advocate of supercharging the nervous system. (1-6 principle)
