More or different

Every week I try to switch up my workouts, increase the number of reps, or the amount of weight.  Today I tried to up my barbell squat performance.  Two weeks ago I did four set of 8 reps with 185 pounds on the bar.  Today my sets at 185 went 8,8,8,9 with a 10 reps at 135 pound chaser.  It’s a minor improvement but forward movement all the same.
