Is it best to go up with a weight you can lift but not be able to completely control on the down motion or only work with weights you can control equally?
I can pull 205# with bent rows, but when I lower it, its harder to control and ends up making noise. The reason I ask is because the gym attendant at my school mentioned to me to not make so much noise, "more control". i am wondering if working with a lower weight for better control on the down motion would lower strength(most likely i assume). Currently doing a run at strong lifts, 5x5 rows and 1x5 deadlifts.
