    I have become stronger since I found my 5 rep maxes 7 weeks ago. I'm going to be starting my 3rd week of 5's soon and was wondering if I should just stick with the weights I'm using or should I up the weights slightly so that when I do hit my 4th week of 5's I won't be able to push out any more than 5 reps?

    I just did my 2nd week of 5's today and found that a most of the exercizes I performed I could have done at least 2 or 3 more reps.

    I had the same thing when I finished my 5s. Just keep incrementing upward if you can. That's what I did. It worked great.
