Yes, you can take the weights up if they feel really easy. For example, being on week one, you know that the weights shouldn't be extremely tough, but they shouldn't be incredibly easy either. So that first week you can reset that baseline by feel. With the PC example, let's say 75% is really easy: you can take it up to 80% or so, then aim to make the same weight changes prescribed week to week from 80% instead of 75%.
