I appreciate your reply anyway, so thank you!
Oh no, I completely agree with that. I readily acknowledge that the variations help avoid boredom primarily and also help correct weaknesses but my concern is mostly because I don't lift even a combined 1000lbs, should I bother using variations? As far as form goes, I'm very OCD about my form and I've spent all of my current experience lifting perfecting it. I think that's what originally held me back in terms of weight is that I was constantly working with light weight to guarantee my form was spot on. To this day, I'd put money down to say my form on all 3 lifts is near perfect with the need for minor change in cues. I pride myself on my form. Obviously, you'll have to take my word for it until I can post videos. Appreciate that insight.
I figured that might have been the issue but anything over 10lbs just threw me off, like really? That's a lot of weight dependent on neural adaptations.. That makes complete sense, I didn't think of it that way and I appreciate you bringing that to the forefront. I'll just stick to the different stimuli then.
I appreciate your time to reply to me, you've helped clear some things up. Thank you!
