What’s your stance on counting reps during the set. I started to ask my self why I am even counting the reps firsthand ? I mean during the set you either want to focus 100% on working the muscle or 100% on firing in the movement. The brain can not multitask it can only switch between two task so counting reps is a bad thing since it takes way your focus from your set ? However I also noticed I can’t stop counting them, it happens automatically. Only when I really push it the last rep is with 100% focus and/or my mind is empty. I also noticed that when I try to focus only on my set and not on counting that I get fewer reps than normal.
What do you guys think, should i work on “not counting“? But on the other hand you should know how much work you did for monitoring volume and rep pr’s.
