I confessed to you in High Intensive Training that I have a problem when I train – I simply don’t know how to hold back. When I lift, I tend to go all out, usually on every set. While it sounds tough it’s not always a good thing. In fact, I have actually been getting weaker as a result.
Too often I have been training too hard. Don’t get me wrong – I am all for training hard and pushing myself in the gym. But stopping every set of every exercise when another rep in great form is not possible is a great way to burn out and get weaker.
Trust me. I have experienced this myself as of late and seen dozens of frustrated lifters do the same thing every week.
