    i always find myself choosing a set number and doing that too. its like i trick my mind cause when i get to my goal number i find myself basically at failure. i always switch it up but i know what you mean im always counting my reps in my head even when i dont mean to.

    Focus more on the contraction of the muscle and its easier to loose track of the reps. Failure is a good thing brotha

    why not just set youself a rep goal and choose a weight that allows to you fail within the given rep range your aiming for?? Or am i misunderstanding your post?
