it seems like its based on reps instead of increasing weight. You could try doing a ladder style set. Like try for ladder of squats (percentages of weight can be adjusted to fit your ability but this gives you a rough idea of what to do)rest between each set (usually as long as it takes my partner to do his set.
25% @ 10 reps (warm up, slow down explode up)
50% @ 10 reps (focus on posture not speed)
75% @ 5 reps (remember slow and smooth)
90% @ 2-3 reps (don't forget to breathe)
**100% @ 1 rep max (once every 3 weeks)**
75% @ 5 reps
50% @ 10 reps
25% @ till burn out
Esentially you are moving up and back down a pyramid or ladder. These I usually only do for major muscle groups workouts like Squats, leg press, bench, iso rows, etc. I lift completely different for supportive/ fast twitch muscles. Remember to alternate workouts every week to keep from hitting a plateau. Change each week from flat bench to incline then to decline, pin press, then dumbell bench, dumbell incline, decline, etc.
