I'm doing Rippetoe's Starting Strength right now, so if I ever can't get 3x5 of a weight, I will repeat the same weight next workout. Today I was benching and I got the 5 reps of the first set without much problem (probably could have got another rep). For the next set, my first spotter was busy so I ask some other dude to spot. After I unrack the weight, his hands immediately start hovering below the bar, so I specifically tell him not to touch the bar unless it starts to fall back on my chest. He goes ahead and touches the bar reps 4 and 5 anyways. I get a different spotter next set. Of course, he also goes and touches the bar on the 5th rep.
So I'm pretty sure I could have gotten 3x5 of the weight, but I technically didn't. Should I move up in weight next workout anyways?
DAMN I hate those people.
