If you take your bench from 100 lbs for 12 reps, and raise it to 200 lbs for 12 reps, you've gotten stronger and built muscle.

If you take your bench from 150 lbs for 5 reps, and raise it to 250 lbs for 5 reps, you've gotten stronger and built muscle.

You see, the number of reps used make less difference than raising the weight you use for those reps. That's progression and it is the single most important factor in getting bigger and stronger. Quit stressing over the stuff that means less and concentrate on the stuff that means more; that's the secret to success.
