should i increase my weight every week and lower reps ? whats the best way to increase on weights?
Increase the weight once you feel you can do more??
Do you have a set routine you do each week?
For instance with bench, once you get to a set number of reps with the weight you're using, add 5 or 10 pounds and start working your way back up in reps again.
Best lifts: 580/470/635, Raw
yeh i have a set routine, thanks for the info i just started lifting so my questions are relatively simple
but what do u think is a good rep number to start increasing my weight
Once you hit at least 8 reps, increase the weight.
8 reps with good form, that is..
sounds obvious, but most people neglect it, inluding myself at times.
make sure not to go up to quick so you dont blow out your shoulders,
i recamend only five pound per increase
and also what ive started doing is to work with the weight with 8 reps for an extra week so my body can get used to a heavier weight more
just my opinion
You cant buy strength, but you sure as hell can work for it
