Doesnt need recognition
2022 was a fantastic year in the gym for me, 28 years since i first stepped in to the gym, 28! years, its in my dna, this year i will be shredded af. Don't care that much for size or strength now, as i am getting older its more about being in good shape. Light weight!
Late response but w/e
Proud of you man. I've been there couple times although no 28 years!
Lightweights are perfect for isolating muscles and using said muscle to do the work whereas with heavier weight other muscle groups will step in and help thus minimizing your intended muscle. (My english isn't the best so I hope you can follow me)
Like if you flex your biceps your forearm will lift right. That's my base because the bicep does the work. Slowly add weight while keeping that mentally was how I worked out.
Again much respect and keep on keeping on!
