    Straight sets or heavy ramped sets?

    For a volume routine, someone told me that on my work sets I should be increasing the weight through the sets and that that is more effective then just straight sets at a static weight. I am trying to figure out what he meant by that. Is this the correct way of doing this?:

    For example, if I was doing 4 sets of 6-10 reps of an exercise

    Instead of this:

    Warmups, 250x10, 250x10, 250x8, 250x6

    I would do this:

    Warmups, 235x10, 250x10, 265x8, 275x6
