On counting reps. If you do progressive overload training, which I think most of the advanced and pro guys do, you have to count reps or you really never know when to go up in weight. Granted, you don't set your goal at a certain number and stop there. The number of reps is what you performed last time and you need to beat that number. For example, if I hit 11 reps last time I am trying to get 12 reps this time or at least 11 reps with better form, slower tempo, better mind/muscle connection, etc...
