A good insight into the mind of @weskitts22 🦍
So much truth in this quote. No matter the weight an athlete should seek perfect technique. The goal should be to hit every lift exactly the same with accuracy and precision. So often I see people rush through warm ups or just rip on light bars to hustle up to their working weights. This is a wasted opportunity. Focus for all the reps and try to never take one for granted. Your body is always learning. Don't cheat yourself. Learn to move light weights perfectly and strive for perfection every time you touch a bar and I guarantee the big weights will become more consistent.
One training philosophy I picked up @cal_strength that also applies to this is moving every attempt at the same speed that you would your max. Not the same amount of POWER, but the same SPEED. This means that however slow you break the bar off the ground and however high you pull the bar on your heaviest attempts, is exactly how you should make every attempt look. The better you can replicate your PR attempts with lighter weights, the more prepared your body will be to move that way. Don't just drive the bar up with I'll force and ignore any information it gives you. Learn to feel the bar and learn what it feels like to execute perfect. Find the perfect feel and strive to replicate it. I hope you guys find this useful and good luck with your training! #weightlifting #american105 #weightlifting #training #mind #technique
