Today's episode surrounds the ever important topics considering evaluating appropriate progression when moving through a training cycle. Speaking from the context of primarily hypertrophy but with indications of where dually applicable for strength as well.

1. What is the relevancy of achieving a greater tonnage in evaluating progression? Is tonnage a metric we should pay attention to in a micro perspective? What about from a macro perspective?
Example. Performing 30 lbs. for 15 reps = 450 lbs. tonnage vs 32.5 lbs. at 12 reps = 390 lbs. Does this decrease in total tonnage mean a lesser hypertrophic stimulus?

2. How should you decide when to move up in weight for your working sets?
Example: Say a target rep range is 12-15. If you perform 15, 13, 11. Do you move up or repeat the following week? Technically you didn’t meet the rep range on set 3, but the first two are great.
