How intense should training sessions in order to produce enough stress on the body, to have a reaction.

E.g. If I know what my 10RM is on 7 exercises, who I always train at those values and increase where I can? Or should aim at 90% or 80%...

Training at 10RM all the time means that there is a good chance I will miss all planned reps (simply because the order of the exercises or recovery from the last session). This means that of 7 exercises I would fail at 2.
