Try using weights more than your muscles are used to, in order to develop muscles. With continuous practice, your capacity increases.
Increase intensity on regular basis by adding more weights and changing sets or reps.
Purpose of weight lifting must be considered as well. For those who wish to increase muscular strength should follow relevant program. To lose weight only specific type of reps are practiced.
Take appropriate rest with workout and exercise. During this period you store energy for the next program and muscles shape in that time. Do not focus on same muscle group for two consecutive days.

Lift and lower the weights gradually as abrupt movements may cause cramps and aches.
Breathe continuously and do not hold it.
