Re: Dynamic Effort without accommodating resistance

A lifter has to fail on max effort day to know they have strained? That's a pile of bull****. Why would you want to train to fail?

You have your ME variation exercises that you rotate. The goal is to PR on that variation each time it comes up. Sometimes it's a big PR sometimes it may be 5lbs. If you hit a PR tak it and walk away. You've just accomplished somethingyou couldn't do previously. There's nothing wrong with leaving a little in the tank. Psych wise its way more beneficial. If you hit a 10lb PR and its hard and then try for a 20lb PR and fail its easy to get caught up in the failure and not the previous success. Then that negativity carries on throughout the rest of your session.

Train for success.

If there are typos its be cause I'm on mobile phone.
