Strength & Conditioning

Approximately 80% of the injuries that occur during strength training are because of poor technique. When you push yourself to the point that you can no longer lift the weight, the last couple of repetitions are usually done with less than perfect technique. During the first 4-6 months of training, when your body is still learning to perfect the movements avoid training to failure, stop the set when you or your training partner first notice that your technique is starting to break down.
