Default Upping the weight in Max-OT

Ok, I'm at the point where I'm doing about 6 reps each working set for chest. I want to up the weight. But should I do it for both exercises (I'k okay w/ the dips for now)?

For example, Today I did:

DB flat press: 80's x 6, 5, 5
Incline db presses 55's x 8, 6, 6

Should I do 85's AND 60's next week? Or should I just try 85's and see how that affects the inclines?

The whole reasoning behind Max-OT working is weight progression. Once you hit 6 reps you have no choice but to up the weight due to muscle memory. So next time in the gym you'd do 85x? for flat and I'd recommend 65's for inclines because you hit past 6. Don't worry about flat bench wearing you out for inclines. Theoretically you will be stronger the next workout so it should feel about the same as this week. I also recommend increasing weight used for dips as well. That's what Max-OT is....Beating the logbook every time you enter the gym. Hypothetically, with their reasoning, if you were to keep the weight the same the following week you wouldn't grow at all.
