what is in your opinion the better template for hypertrophy?
- Sets with the same weight and the same amount of reps. E.g. 5x5, 3x10, 4x8
- Pyramiding up to a top set with the same amount of reps.
E.g. 8x200 / 8x225 / 8x250 / 7x275 (Can`t hit the 8 rep on this set so the exercise is over)
Thank you so far.
Thank you for the question.
If you forced me to chose one template I would probably go with "Pyramiding up to a top set with the same amount of reps.
E.g. 8x200 / 8x225 / 8x250 / 7x275 (Can`t hit the 8 rep on this set so the exercise is over)".
That said, I really don't think it's wise to chose a singular template and stick with it 100% of the time. There is tremendous value in changing things up, especially if you are training a body part twice in one week. My secondary workouts tend to include sets with the same weight for 10 reps x 4 sets and ensuring reps are left in the tank. I train for a pump on these days and avoid sets to failure to avoid CNS burnout.
I hope this helps!
All the best,
