    I cast my vote for changing “when” it’s time to progress.

    Try adding 5 pounds EVERY time you reach TEN instead of only after all three sets are ten and it’s “easy.”

    My thought is that compounds are always king however frequency matters and you’ll have to see if once a week is sufficient for you. I personally prefer to hit a muscle every four days.

    2. 100x8
    3. 100x6
    4. 100x5

    But I’d say it’s very rare and usually not the first exercise for that body...

    My son keeps “double PR” records....that is , he likes it when he “graduates twice”...for example:

    2. 105x 10*
    3. 110x8
    4. 110x6
