who is doing a pyramiding work out at the moment? and how are the gains?
i havent done pyramiding work outs in forever, and i'm startin a new routine tomorrow....i'm not talkin bout reverse pyramid, with heaviest weight first...but increase weight, decrease reps type of scheme
i know this has been asked, but in the search i just seem to find reverse pyramiding...so i was wondering how those who do regular pyramiding have gained from this
i sometimes do them on leg day with the leg press machine. but i dont do them very often

I do pyramids occasionally, but I haven't noticed any gains on them yet
You kill me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize....
I always pyramid. In fact, I've never done it any other way.
I pyramid in multiples of 3. 18 reps, then 15, then 12, then burn 'em back at 18. Seems to work for me...
