Progressively Heavier Weights

Q: “Hi, I am an ectomorph and I have a question about your article on hypertrophy for ectomorphs. How would you modify the weight for each set? Do you start with something you can comfortably do 10 times and progressively raise the weight as the sets get smaller, then lower the weight for the set of 15 reps? Or do you not even modify the weight at all?”



My Answer: Yes, start off with a 10 rep max weight and add more weight from set to set. For the 15 rep set, lower the weight.
