Its one of the cornerstones of training ( perhaps key amongst them )but I just cant seem to get a handle on progression. If I try to progress by lifting a little more weight each session my reps tend to go down. If I try to progress by upping the reps to reach a rep target before upping the weight my reps stall!!
Today in the gym I ended up doing far fewer reps with a weight that was only a couple of pounds heavier than last time out. I am a bit pissed off.
BTW my main problem seems to be progression in the lifts that I set out to reach around the eight to ten rep mark. I can sort of get through sessions where my rep range is in the three to five reps per set range.
