Comments: I always tell myself after a set where I don't hit at least 5 reps to keep the weight and that I'll find it in myself to hit 6 reps next set...which obviously doesn't always happen. It's an optimistic attitude, but next time I find myself not hitting the rep target, I should just lower the weight regardless and then re-raise it if I go above 8 reps on that lower weight.
