I think this comment is right on spot! I'm a beginner myself and instantly found myself getting ( slightly ) injured trying to move heavy-ass weights out of the gate. When I got past my own ego and dropped the weights down, my form and progress increased and my injuries decreased. Ego can be a b*tch sometimes. lol
