The way I progress is like this, I have my training sets and reps worked out, in my case it is currently 5X5. lets say I am doing squats and i'm doing 5 sets of 5 reps at my working weight.
I warm up and start chipping away at the lower sets until I get too my working weight. Which was 155kg. I completed 5 sets of 5 reps at 155kg successfully. Next training session my working weight will bump up to 160kg. Every workout the goal is to complete your working weight and then add weight next time. "Progressive resistance". If you can't add weight get in some more reps. Never do the same amount of reps at the same weight from a prior workout. If you want to see this program in action have a look at Lee's log or for a slightly bastardized version look at my log. Cheers
