    Progression

    Is adding 5-10 pounds to each lift every other week a good goal? For instance, say I bench 10 pounds for 3 sets 6 reps on week 1. Do the same weight week 2, and then on week 3 go for 15 pounds?

    why do the same weight on week 2? unless you (a) didn't get the reps you intended to or (b) you got the reps but the weight was heavy and you were grinding it out with crap form.

    other then that, don't hold yourself back. ramp up for three weks and then cut back in week for. rinse. repeat.
