"How do I choose the right weight?" is a frequent question I get from trainees. On the surface this seems like an easy question to answer. However, like many other questions in the strength game, the answer depends on several different variables that need to be considered.
It’s funny, when I think of some of the concepts I use in my training and spend long portions of the day teaching to clients, it makes me laugh. My 21-year old self would mock the hell out of my present-day self instructing a client to “feel the lats squeeze when you drive your elbows back!” or “squeeze your butt as hard as you can at the top of the movement!”
