    Should you be able to up the weight by a small amount each week? Should you try to?


    What's the basic guideline?

    i'm a complete nub at fitness and nutrition in general but if you're trying to gain strength, i don't see any reason why you wouldn't increase the weight the next week if you can maintain proper form and at least do the same amount of reps/sets like you did the previous weight?

    you should at least try.. maybe not always up the weight , but add a rep or two if you can.

    .

    you got to force yourself to progress or you'll just plateau

    edit- at least after your newbie gains are done.

    nah, a plateau is when you try, but can't go further.. what you're describing is just being a lazy bitch.

    If you eat and sleep right without overtraining...yes should be able to make gains each week.

    how long before newbie gains stop? I hope never because I am feeling great and getting stronger, but not really gaining much weight... I have been lifting for about 2 months now.
