Yeah, thats pretty much dead on with the way my mind's thinking. Like because im doing less reps than i know im capable of on shoulder press i feel like im not doing enough. I guess its an ego thing, all i mainly care about is what im able to lift. So even if my shoulders feel like they took a beating if i didnt hit the amount of reps i wanted it still leaves me totally disgusted afterwards. Know what i mean?
I dont do much volume, and i usually just do 1 bench exercise for chest per workout (2 at the absolute most) since i'd be doing every muscle twice a week...so i think im going to try it out.
