When should i increase Weight?

  • I'm a bit confused on increasing the weight levels. 

     

    For example 

    12 Reps at 5Kg

    10 Reps at 6kg

    8 Reps at 7kg 

    6 Reps at 8kg

    12 Reps at 7kg 

    12 Reps at 5kg 

     

    When i want to increase the weights should i leave the same amount of weights at 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps and 6 reps then only increase at the highpoint? Or do i increase the weights at all levels.

    Example  

    12 reps 6kg

    10 reps 7kg

    8 reps 8kg 

    6 reps 9kg

    12 reps 8kg

    12 reps 6kg 

  • This is a question that I have never even thought about, but it's a good one. I increase the level across all levels.

    One question, though - are you changing exercises for the final set of 12 reps for each muscle group?

    Example:

    • 12 reps 6kg
    • 10 reps 7kg
    • 8 reps 8kg
    • 6 reps 9kg
    • 12 reps 8kg
    • 12 reps (different exercise for same muscle group) 6kg

    Want it. Plan it. Do it.
