Yes, it is wrong as it does not provide the body with any additional stimulus for increased strength and/or hypertrophy.M.Ed. Ex Phys

If you're decreasing reps you should add weight

Are you increasing reps on a weekly basis?
In other words, if week 1 is like this for 3 sets: 12, 10, 9
Week 2 should be something like: 12, 11, 10
The question is, are you progressing? After 3-4 weeks are you increasing the weight and performing similar reps, or are you monotonous?

Every workout i try to add at least one rep for every set and when i reach 12 10 8 6 i add weight. During the summer it worked great but then i had to stop training for two months because of an injury and now i'm back again.
I'm not trying to get huge and i don't care if i can lift 500pounds for deads i just lift because i enjoy it and looking better is always welcome.
What i did is instead of 5x5 i do less sets with more reps. Because of the very litle rest between sets i can't do 10reps for three or four sets.
