    Now, without trying to sound too condescending, what are you doing certified to teach and asking questions like this?

    that is a cookie cutter thing that is going to be in your teaching for that certificate and it is just a blueprint.

    the true answer lies in your own experiences and trying things on your clients to get the most out of it. there is a fine line between over training and under training. some guys go a lifetime without ever figuring it out.

    I mean personally I would want to test myself by going up slightly with every set but that’s just me.

    I think you need to experiment with the weights themselves, but it is certainly true that 8 to 15 reps is in the hypertrophy range.
