New to the forum and beginner weight lifter. For the past couple years I have tried to get into weight training, but I have always encountered the same problem. I tend to fatigue half way through my workout program and can never complete what I had set out for myself that day.
For example: On chest days I start out with movement prep such as trigger point ball to the pecs just to wake them up then a little stretch and I go for dumb bell press (2x10), incline press (2x10), dumbbell fly (2x10), decline press (2x10).
HOWEVER... after the first set of incline press my form tends to go, and for me if the form isn't there why continue... So I end up going skipping to the fly machine and I'll get a set of 10 out drop the weight by 5 and doing as many as I can until I hit the second 10. And usually I'll skip the decline press cause I can't get it up. This will usually take me ~ 20 mins. I feel like it was a waste of time at the gym because the next day I don't really feel anything. I wish I had a spotter but I don't have anyone to work out with.
What kind of advice can you vets give me? My goal is to build up my pecs, lose my spare tires, and look like everyone else on this board. LOL.
Thanks for the advice.
