OK quick tip for you to try: quit doing just one set for each weight. Let your body hit the same weight for 2-3sets and do the wieght and reps youre currently doing. Ive done that where I just keep going up in weight with only one set and I dont feel as well after my workout compared with 2-3 sets with each weight.
