Through the links you will find my daily workouts.
I will put the weights I am currently using, without a spotter. I have been training steadily and progressively through strength phases to lift what I do. If you are just starting out, lift to your ability or, even better, find a training partner and spot each other.
Form will always trump weight. I lift to failure, but ensure my form isn’t compromised for “going heavy”. You can get similar benefits by lifting slow and concentrating on the contraction of the muscle group you’re working.
Be smart and work to your ability.
