Yes, heavy enough weight that he can only do it ten reps (repetitions), if he takes too light weights, then he would do it more than ten times and would do no (or little) effect.
Or then he would make more than ten reps, which is not what the guy/the coach recommend (one has to sweat when doing exercises, push himself a bit).
