Hi, so I tried tightening my lats and whole body just before I’m about to lift, and I also use my weight against the weight slightly and “pull the slack out of the bar”. What happens is I get a huge illusion that I can’t lift the weight lol, it’s a strange feeling because it’s a really light weight but I have zero clue if I can actually lift it by how it feels.
Do any of you experience this? Should I try hard as I can anyway, even if I feel that when things start getting heavy? Or is there an issue?
Every time i get that tight i feel like im going to fail the rep before i pull it and that itll be impossible to move. This is with a weight i can hit 16 reps on, 180lbs
