I started going to gym few months ago and I am currently on a "low volume" 2-day split workout routine.
I kinda like low volume training as I am getting good results by doing 9/10 different exercises a day while minimizing overtraining and injuries, just as I read in the relative ExRx section.
If I got it right, low volume training consists of doing 1 warmup set and 1 workout set for every exercise. I try to work all my way up to 12 reps with my maximum weight, then I increase the weight by 5/10% the next time I will redo the exercise, if comfortable with it.
The procedure is straightforward when dumbbells, barbells or levers are involved. However, now I want to change my routine and include free weight exercises, such as dips, pull-ups, chin-ups and the like. How should I behave with these exercises according to "low volume" guidelines, if any for these cases? Do as many reps as I can? More sets? Add some weight somehow?
Besides, I think I have lost most of my fat already and I am willing to start working my abs now. Here again, how should I behave?
Thanks, I know the question could be silly but I am just a beginner
