I've never tried maxing out on anything i lift.....what's the guidelines here?? I usually do 4 sets of everything- 12 or 10 reps on the first set and a min of 8-10 on the second and then 5-6 on the last two, depending on how heavy i am getting.
I haven't ever tried to max out on anything and do extremely heavy weight, i am curious how much i could do. like on bench (not smith machine), the most i do now (like 6 reps) is 75. Squats, 100, 8x. how heavy should i try going? Al makes sure i keep my form right, and don't just half ass do something the wrong way just so i can lift more. I don't want to kill myself, but i see some chics in there smaller than me, that do more weight.
so when you guys say you can do XXX weight- are you doing it only once????
