Very cool. When my son raises the weight, I limit the reps to no more than 6 for that first session just to let him get used to the increase. After that he goes for it with max reps. When he finally masters the weight and hits 12 to 15 reps, we increase it and drop it back to 6 reps, then work back up again.
