How many reps would I do with another weight? 

Yeah, because we all ask ourselves this, usually after a competition or when we switch to a bigger gyria. 

Assuming that we keep the same quality in the lifts, or maybe we would even lift better with a lighter weight, there is a way to have an estimate number of reps.

Here it is

Estimating the number of reps from a smaller weight (eg how many reps with 32 knowing how many reps you can do with 24)

X=Y*(2-(A/B))

X is the estimated number of reps with the bigger weight. Y is the known number of reps done with the smaller weight. A is the bigger weight, B is the smaller.

Estimating the number of reps from a bigger weight (eg how many reps with 24 knowing how many reps you van do with 32)

X=Y/(2-(A/B))

Pretty much the same but this time you have to divide instead.

Hope this will help you programming a transition to a different weight.
