Thanks brother
Hi Berd,

Progression builds muscle, regardless of rep ranges - as long as they are reasonable ranges. With that said, I do not generally advocate under 5 rep sets for intermediate and lower lifters. They need reps, time under tension and form practice too.

Your second question...they are the same thing. Not sure if I am understanding you correctly. Perhaps you can give me some number examples.
