How you lift is more important than how much

Form and technique trump weight. Every session, leave your pride at the door and focus on perfect technique and a strong mind-muscle connection.

Bolting into the gym and swinging dumbbells around that are far too heavy for you is a recipe for disaster (injury) and suboptimal (if any!) gains.

Lifting at a weight that allows you to perform consistent controlled reps provides you with a better benchmark to measure and improve your performance, and ultimately the weight you lift, through progressive overload

Don’t short change yourself effort-wise, but forget about trying to lift more than anyone else in the gym. Instead, challenge yourself to have the best technique and to maximise every rep via controlled, deliberate lifting.

You’ll see more growth and less injury.
