How do you progress ?

Hi. 21/M I was very scared of the gym a few years ago but finally decided to go and get in shape, with strength as a primary goal. As I had no idea about form and ****, I had to get a PT. I think he taught me good form, but now that I've been lifting for a year with the usual 5*5 sets on bench...
