That's a good session.
I don't know if this matters, but I get a kick out of choosing the decrement
amount so that the reps kind of stay the same. This sort of says that the
decrease in weight in just matching the increase in fatigue. And I would
keep the reps to about 8. So you might have done 190 followed by mebbe 170,
Again, I don't know how important the above concept is, but it would at
least keep the weight higher.
Overall, pyramids are Da Bomb.
