I'm thinking of a progression method based on the rep goal system.
For accesories, not for deadlifts or squats.

For example, rep goal is 30 done in 3 sets.

1. 100 kg x 10 reps, 9 reps, 8 reps + 3 myoreps = 30 reps (continue with the same weight, since I didn't do it in 3 sets)
2. 100 kg x 11 reps, 10 reps, 9 reps = 30 reps (increase weight next time)
3. 105 kg x 9 reps, 8 reps, 7 reps, 6 reps = 30 reps (continue with the same weight, because 4 sets)
4. 105 kg x 9 reps, 9 reps, 8 reps + 4 myoreps = 30 reps (continue with the same weight)
and so on until increase weight again

Or maybe incorporate down sets (on the last set) instead of myo reps, but this means I should lower the weight.

Any advice?
Any experience with the rep goal system?
Are straight sets better? Why?

Thanks,

Ultimately, it’s pretty much the same shit. 30 reps in 3 sets is not much different than 3 x 10 at the end of the day. The only real difference is the rep distribution.

As long as your sets are pushed hard and you take at least some sets to failure, it’s all up to personal preference. What matters is the overload, not so much how you structure your sets.

Using rest-pause/myo reps to extend the set is just an intensifying technique. I’m a big fan because I feel like the payoff for doing them at the end of a set is huge.

Just my 2c.

It's fine. As long as you're progressing over time, there are many roads to where you want to go.
