    Proper way for 5 x 5

    I have heard of a few ways of doing a 5 x 5 routine (single factor)

    1. Do the same weight for all 5 sets. Once you can complete 5 sets of 5 reps with the same weight...move the weight up

    2. Vary the weights working up as you go along.
    Ex. Set 1 - 100, Set 2 - 125, Set 3 - 150, Set 4 - 175, Set 5- 200

    Which way is the proper way to do it? Can 5 x5 routines be used both ways?
