Maxing Out

Sorry for yet another post about the gym. Today I got up to what for me is a whopping 30 pounds per arm dumbbell bench press. 

You see, the idea with lifting is to start with weights you can lift and use heavier ones as you get stronger. However, it's equally important to learn to do a proper form bench press, or pull up, or lat pull. Depending on your fitness level, the exercise you're performing might be too hard, too easy, or just right. It's okay to test your strength, but try to spend most of your workout doing exercises you can do with good focus!
