What are some of the factors that caused weight trainers to lose sight of the critical importance of heavy poundages?
0 vote(s)One factor that accelerated the problem was the development of weight training machines with built-in weight stacks. This lowered expectations because the machine made it look like the top weight on the stack was the upper limit of human achievement. One tended to think that lifting the whole stack was impossible – something only a Superman could do. If you only managed half the weight stack, you tended to thing you were “doing ok.” The machines were teaching us that 220 pound bench presses were world class lifts!
