Hey everyone. One of my friends keeps insisting that if I continue lifting “heavy” loads I will eventually hurt my body. We’re not talking here about ultra loads that break my form - I mean 12 reps, struggling with the last few, but proper form all throughout.
I don’t have any empirical evidence that his reasoning is incorrect, but all this repetitive talk is not only starting to annoy me, but is also making me now wonder if there’s any truth in what he’s saying.
I personally cannot see how I can grow without pushing myself. We usually argue over stuff like 520lb leg presses, 95lb DB shrugs. I’ve been training for about 1.5 years.
