OK, now you're in trouble. The Swede is involved now. The Swede shifts planetary orbits with his lifting. I'm not sure what Embrance means, but it better mean something along the lines of I'm willing to pass out unconscious under some serious effing weights, and it seems as though you are heading in that direction!

HA! Just kidding! Well, not about the Swede, but everything else, yes. Have fun!

This is not an uncommon issue for a lot of people. You have made a classic mistake in starting this program. You're not the first, and won't be the last person to make this mistake.

In the instructions for the Reeves, it is written that you should start with a light weight of about 50% of your known max, or current working sets. In your first post you said you were going to start at a medium weight.

It is written several times that you must not let your ego get in the way of working this program. Drop your weights, and work into the program gradually. Especially the aspect of working the presses before the bench.

This will improve, just give it some time.

This is covered in the instructions, and your experience is why it talked about.

You must drop the weight that you have been using. 50% is about right to start at. You will be surprised by how hard the end of the week session is as compared to the first session even at these reduced weights.

The program does work, but you need to walk into it, and not try to jump into it full force. Going too heavy too soon, and you will fail! It is not even that you might fail, you will fail unless you work into the prgram gradually.

Best of luck!

One of my biggest problems is trying to use too much weight all the time.

I have been there.Now,when on full body,I do either 2 hard sessions per weeks,or 3 medium-to-hard,or heavy-light-medium,or just take a week of after eavery 4th-5th week.Most people think that this is too much,but FB Workouts,arent the same case with all other.The body LOVES that extra recovery time.
