Has anyone here ever tried vaying repetitions each workout in their weight training, with or without success?
A recent article in a Peak performance newsletter (UK training journal) claimed this method showed superior results to other methods tested - constant amount of repetitions across workouts, and traditional linear periodisation.
I can’t remember the proper name for this method, perhaps Daily Undulating Periodisation?
An example of reps under this method.
Workout 1: all sets 8 reps, Workout 2: all sets 6 reps, Workout 3: all sets 3 reps. Workout 4: repeat cycle. Volume remains similar (as close as possible) each workout due to adjusting number of sets.
