sacrificing more weight for more sets?
This is my question. When you warm up to do 1-2 sets like d.c. you can obviously lift with 100% intenstity because you havnt already burned yourself out with other sets. But when pyramiding, my last set only is taken to failure, and because of the other 3 sets, my last set suffers. Had i done my last set first, i will have been able to get more reps.
so my question is this, when i am pyramiding, will i still get bigger and stronger even though my last set set suffers a little and i cant get as much reps as i could have.
lets say, i can do 255 on the bench for 9 reps my first set. But on my 4th set of a pryamid, i can only do 255 for 5-6 reps. i will keep at it for a couple of weeks, and eventually be able to do 255 for 9 on my last set. After that adaption, to you think my strength would have increased and now be able to do say 265-270 for 9 on my first set. Thanks in advance.

If you're still gaining and getting stronger, don't worry about it. I don't pyramid personally, just the way my body it. You have to figure out what works best for your body.

theres a reason for pyramiding. It will incorporate all the different muscell fibers. ie fast/slow. This is good... remember the body remembers so mix it up, yes you will get stronger
