    aaron or anyone else in the know, I was thinking about trying some conjugate training and i've been doing a lot of reading. my question is when you see the supplemental lifts after max effort sets it will say for example 3 sets x 6-10 reps. are these sets to failure? how much weight do you use? Do you progressively add weight? thanks.

    it depends.

    You train the supplemental moves to work the weak points. Therefore if you need to add size, I do a variety of rep ranges, sometimesw within the same workout (wave loading etc) but if pure strength is the gaol, then you need to lower the reps ad maintain a reasonable volume overall.
    Practice overall will tell you what you need for each area.
