Hi, I have just stated squatting and deadlifting again, and I know that during those exercises, for safety and max strength you are supposed to be very tight at all times (when squatting get real tight and pull yourself down, not drop), but I have been having trouble lately holding the tension for multiple reps when squatting and deadlifting.
It is not because the weights are too heavy, it is just a matter of staying contracted. I am strong and in very good shape, but I have trouble really staying super tight through multiple reps. I think it has to do with my focus, or nervous system or something, or maybe I’m just doing something wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions?
