Remember to appreciate the process and don't jump in at the deep end when lifting. Use your brain when it comes to load, not your ego.

DM #507: There's a reason that some of those 1 rep max attempts look so terrible 🙈.
As we reach the limit of our capacity, form breaks down and our nervous system defaults to safety mode, hanging on tissues/ligaments/joints to find the stability required to complete the movement. Now, I'm not here to be the 1 rep max police. Ain't nobody got time for that. BUT, if you're trying to learn a new pattern (or phase out an old, dysfunctional one) load can, and will become the enemy real quick.
Once that nervous system of your perceives that the load is too great (and it doesn't have to be extremely heavy for this to occur) it's going to default to what it knows, what is safe, and what may or may not be super ugly.
So, when it comes to load (external or just your own body weight), use it wisely. It can be an absolutely excellent tool to expose dysfunction, to build strength, to engrain new patterns...but it can and will also reinforce those 💩-y ones that you're working so hard to get rid of. That ego of yours can be the heaviest load of all. Don't be afraid to leave it at the door.
