    I was answered on the question on what weight I should start out when going into a program. Now I want to ask on how to progress from here.

    If I overshot my weight and hit less reps than the minimum, should I lower the weight next time I do it or should I grind the weight until I hit the top recommended rep?

    Next question, when should a person up the weight in a program when form is deemed perfect? Do you up the weight when you hit the heavy set max reps AND the back off set max reps? Or should you increase the weight individually on the set that you hit max reps with and leave the weight on the other set until it hits max reps?

    I guess to clarify my second question.

    In the Terrence prep program. A exercise would be 2 sets.

    1st set. 6-8 rep range, heavier weight
    2nd set. 8-12, back off weight.

    Let’s say for example, the 1st set hits 9 reps and you consider the 9 reps to be good form in the 6-8 rep range, but then you would hit 11 reps on your second set in the 8-12 range. Would you increase the weight for the 1st set next session and keep the weight on the 2nd set next session? Or would you wait to increase both sets in weight when BOTH of them hit the top part of their respective rep range?
