Question about a lifting program/approach...
I haven't come across a program like this, but (at least in my head) it seems to make a lot of sense. So I wanted to run it by you guys to see if there's any merit to it.
Let's say you're doing lifts for the combined purpose of both overall strength and muscle endurance; practical combat strength kind of stuff.
Would a lifting regime like this make sense? Example:
Dumbbell BP -
Week/Period 1: 75 lbs, 5x5
Week/Period 2: 75lbs 8x3
Week/Period 3: 75lbs 12x3
Week/Period 4 (reset to 1) 80lbs 5x5
Or in other words, working that lift (could be any lift, just used DB BP as an example) for strength, then once that strength level is attained, increasing the number of reps... possibly even as high as 15, but at least 12.
Then, upping the weight and starting over.
Thoughts? Again, this could work with anything, squats, whatever.
