Jun 18, 2014 When someone on their first set, last time managed 20 reps with the given weight. One dose not expect one arm to fail next week at 9 reps on the first set. I was stood rite next to her waiting to come in and support her (but I simply wasn't ready that early in the set) at around 15 onwards. But since then she has smashed that weight and made great strength gains. The reason she was doing weights she can manage 20 reps with is because I want her form perfect before she moves to a heavy weight. The last person in the world I would want to see hurt is my wife. I resent any one judging the situation without knowing the facts. I especially don't ****ing like being called a prick by someone hiding behind a computer screen.
