..I learned from something Marinera said, something like, you should be able to do your max weight for 3 sets. …
what I mean is that if you can’t use the same weight for three sets straight, given a short amount of rest between (say 5 minutes), than for sure the weight is too high. That doesn’t means that you must use the max weight you can to finish 3 sets - you can grow using a low amount of weight, just enough to feel a mild (and even pleasurable in some way) stretch.
As a rule of the thumb, I think is good starting with say 3 lbs (assuming one is using the Bib or the AFB hanger) and add 1/2-1 lbs every week. The name of the game is TIME, not weight.
So said, I want to underline, as Mr. Happy did, that recognizing mistakes is a sign of intelligence and means one has balls. :up:
