    same weight to failure

    what do u guys think of a workout like this

    for ALL exercises i warm up sufficiently...
    then for each exercise i chose a weight that i can do for no more than 12 reps...
    then i use this weight for all my sets to failure...
    maybe its just the way i fatigue... but for example in bench i get like 315 for 10, then 6-7, 3-4, 1-2
    i feel it keeps it simple...
    thoughts???????

    if you want to get stronger. do about 3 - 4 sets on the bench of about 8 - 12 reps. and build your weight up as you go.

    example: say you press 300lbs only 1 time, 1 week you'll want to do this:

    230lbs = 1 set
    240lbs = 1 set
    250lbs = 1 set

    Next Week:

    255lbs = 1 set
    265lbs = 1 set
    275lbs = 1 set

    Next Week

    260lbs = 1 set
    270lbs = 1 set
    280lbs = 1 set

    keep increasing your weight as the weeks progress and build your muscle stronger. by the time you build yourself up to 300lbs, you should be able to press it for 8 - 10 reps instead of only 1 rep.

    btw, not everyone can go up 10lbs on the bench press so if not, repeat the last 2 sets and just increase the weight by 5lbs.

    230lbs = 1 set
    240lbs = 1 set
    250lbs = 1 set

    Next Week:

    240lbs = 1 set
    250lbs = 1 set
    255lbs = 1 set

    That is a good way to go it just means that your rest periods are not that long .This is great for hypertrophy (mass)However you will see more strength if you go lower on reps and give yourself more rest but you did not ask about that anyway so this is most likely of no concern to you .Anyways yes that looks good just try to change things up every now and then example drop sets ,negs,supersets,static holds stuff like this will keep your muscles guessing and growing peace
