Many strength training programs describe sets something like this:
3 sets 8-10 reps, 10-12 reps, 13-15 reps
I'm not sure what this actually means. Does it mean, 8-10, 8-10, 8-10 (drop the weight here) then 10-12, 10-12, 10-12 (drop the weight again) 13-15, 13-15, 13-15?
Or does it mean 8-10, 10-12, 13-15 (drop the weight here); 8-10, 10-12, 13-15 (drop the weight again); 8-10, 10-12-13-15
Or does it mean something completely different?
To clarify, what I want to know is this: Do you do three of the first range, three of the second range, three of the third range OR Do you do three of all three ranges, three of all three ranges, three of all three ranges? (In both scenarios a total of 9 sets will occur)
