In regards to the Rx’d wt for this and all other workouts.  Think of the weight as a goal.  Trying to get the Rx’d wt with complete disregard for form and safety is plain irresponsible and disrespectful to your body.  Think about it this way, you haven’t trained your body enough to lift those kinds of wts yet you throw on the wt and then get mad at your body for not being able to handle it.  It would be like putting JMax in timeout for not being able to walk yet.  Pick the right wt and achieve the goal of the workout without sacrificing your health.  On the other end of that spectrum, I see people shy away from heavy wt because of fear.  Now this is completely acceptable in the very beginning of training but after a month or so it is time to start increasing the wt.  If you find yourself repeatedly finishing earlier than most everyone else in a workout that is heavily dependent upon the wt you choose, then consider pushing past your comfort zone and doing a little heavier wt.  Ask if you are in doubt.   Lifting the proper wt will get you where you want to go physically.  Being dangerous or being too conservative will keep you where you are.  I have lived on both ends at various times in my life and neither extremes ever got me where I wanted to go.  I either landed in the ER or stayed firmly in the same spot for months/years.  This is also why the calendars are so helpful.  If you continually keep track of your weights, it is so much easier to see what your next workout should be.  Let’s move forward and attain our goals people!
