For the following workouts, how many reps do you do before moving up in weights?
I got my bench at 145 for 3...when do i go up and how much?
I got my deadlift at 225 for 2...when do i go up and how much?
I got my squat at 205 for 3..when do i go up and how much?
BTW, im only 14 and weigh 123..incase those numbers sound small
you go up whenever you want to go up. there's no magic formula.
Well, for working sets I'd do something like:
Week 1: 3 x 8; if completed onto 3 x 10
Week 2: 3 x 10
Week 3: Add 5 or 10 lbs. Do 3 x 6-8 work back up to 10 reps.
Actually I think 10 reps is too much so I usually add 5 or 10 lbs. and do 3 x 6 and work back to 3 x 8.
Or just keep the reps/sets the same, add +5 lbs.
I keep my reps below 6 for bench pressing and deadlifting though.

increase the weight whenever you feel its right. if your shooting for 5 reps but feel that you can do 8-10, up the weight. if you can only do 2 or 3 reps then i'd stay stick with the weight until you can get up to your target repsxsets
