    slow gains



    I have a friend that I lift with that always goes HEAVY

    I mean he can't even get a decent number of full reps

    I keep telling him that maybe every once in a while he should do that, but that should not be the core to his routine, and that he should focus on full range good reps rather than half-assed heavy reps.

    I can't get through his thick head- what should I do- I'd hate to see him get nowhere, but i'm beginning to just let him have at it-

    Advice?

    When you look a hell of alot better than him in a few months he'll start listening to you....or he'll give up...either way dont waste your time worrying about him...just do your thing..you can lead a bodybuilder to the protein shake but you cant make him drink it (damn i'm so funny)
    My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.

    When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.

    If he can't get proper form on his lifts, then that is a problem. However, if he is training for strength and not mass, then he needs to be going heavy. I recently switched over to doing more in the 4-6 repitition range because I care more about strength than mass. However, I will do more than that sometimes for a change of pace.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
