Doing sets - better light to heavy, vice versa or same weight

When doing sets of weights at the gym, is it better to keep the same weight consistent throughout the sets, or go heavier - eg. first start with 5kg, then go to 6.5kg?

    Depends on what you want to accomplish.

    If your a bigger man, looking to lose weight and tone up you want lighter weights lots of reps.
    If your looking to bulk up add mass you want heavier weight less reps.
  3. I'm a slim built person not really trying to lose weight, but put on muscle.
  4. Heavier weight the better then. Push the limit you should be doing sets of about 6-8 of the heaviest you can lift PROPERLY.
