  1. Mike is a true legend and I've learnt so much from him in regards powerlifting. One thing that never gets made clear. He talks about using plus sets for week to week progression. I understand this, you hit extra reps you up the week next week but do you up the load for every repetition range the following week. E.g squat 10 , 8, 6 plus. Do I add weight to each rep range based on the plus set for that week, or do I just add it to the 6 day and leave the 10's and 8's the same for the whole mesocycle then adjust percentages for the next block off the new training max. Im thinking a beginner/early intermediate can add load to every rep range but for high inter/advanced I like to think that leaving the 10's and 8's as they are set at the start of the 3 week block as it prevents pushing to hard to early in the block. I hope that makes sense. please help.
