There are two ways to lift. Moving the most amount of weight from point A to point B or to feel the muscles working to achieve a certain look.
If you are involved in a performance-based sport such as rugby, MMA or powerlifting you will be more concerned about the weight you put on the bar to build strength and power. A typical set is executed with heavier poundages and more explosively. If you are a bodybuilder or a physique competitor the weight is secondary to how you lift it. Your goal is to really feel the muscle working. A set is typically executed with moderate poundages and under control.
