    You can get smaller weights, or you can take an extra session, or you can do fewer reps while you keep increasing the weight.

      Re Wendler - his approach seems very interesting. I've started reading his ebook so thanks for the recommendations!
      That's absolutely fine - you're not always going to hit the reps, as long as you're working towards it.

        Thanks Coach,

        I did 3x4sets @ 40kg today --BUT I realise i have not been including the weight of the bar so really it is 5x4sets @ 47kg!

        I realise this is not much but Im going to claim it nevertheless
