How important is it to go light on the weights once in a while?
I've been working out since October, so around 4 months and have a pretty basic routine. One day I work my back and chest, then the next day I do arms and shoulders, then repeat, sometimes throwing some legs in there. Plus I do cardio everyday for 25 minutes. I've become obsessed with the gym and go everyday, only taking a day off here and there when I have to do something. It's a great feeling and everyday I wake up I can't wait to go to the gym. I was taught when I first started working out to go light on the weights one week then go heavy.
It is very hard for me to go light though!! I am always so excited to get into the gym and even when I tell myself to go light, I end up lifting heavy because it feels so good. Save for some slight shoulder pain this last week that's going away, I have had no injuries from lifting heavy all the time.
Would it be advisable to continue this workout routine or should I really start going light once in a while?
