I saw this video of Kai Green in the main misc and thought it might be helpful for some of the newer guys here.
It is also a good reminder for me, I have gotten in the trap of trying to lift more weight, more weight, more weight.
I tend to be competitive in those terms.
But in the last year I have grown a bit, physically and emotionally and have discovered its not about how much weight you move, its how the weight you move affects you.
So I have reset my personal goals, I want to build a good looking, symmetrical well proportioned body with good size. I am trying to no longer be concerned with how much weight I move in terms of some arbitrary strength goal.
I am concerned about the weight and reps that can accomplish the goals I mentioned.
Anyway I thought this might help some folks. I know the average trainee like myself will not be able to emulate the results of an IFBB pro for obvious reasons, but the principles he explains in this video might be able to help others to reach their goals sooner by taking the ego factor out of their training.
By the way, this will not apply to those whose focus is lifting more weight or whose goals may be outside the focus of this post or video.
