should i do a set, and then do as much as i can on the second set, followed by going back down in weight to finish "working out"?

Honestly, that is a good topic for a sticky... Just kidding.

Everyone does it differently I imagine, and probably would need it's own thread if one hasn't already been made.

You have to know yourself well, know how much warm-up will get you ready without taking too much out of you to do your max. There was an article on TNation about this. It offers complex formulas, but it turned out to be pretty close to what I do anyway. I do something something like this, based on the new 1RM that I'm hoping to get:

40% x 5
60% x 3
70% x 1
80% x 1
100%


Edit: Sorry. This should be a separate thread. Mods, can you fix?
