Whatever weight you can use in the rep range you’re going for is what you should lift. When you can do more (controlled) reps than what you’re aiming for, increase the weight.

By this i mean if i can do 2 extra reps on 2 of my working sets then the weight needs to be increased.
For example, take bicep curls, if i can curl 20's for 4 sets of 10 reps but i felt like i wasn't working as hard as i could, i might do my first set on 10 reps, my second on 12 reps and my third set on 12 reps aswell, my forth set i would do on 22's and then when i next perform the exercise on the next day i do curls, i would start on 22's for a set of 10 reps.
