We are playing baseball here, which does require you to be strong, but when does strength become too much.
My question: Should i keep lifting heavier and heavier for my squats and deadlifts.
I know i should probaly put another 50lbs on each. But after that should i stop and just work on reps. The weight is getting extremely high, and i don’t want to risk future potential injury or career ending injurys.
Squat: 350lbs for 8 reps
Deadlift: 400lbs for 5 reps
Bench press: 220lbs for 5 reps
Now i can see getting to 400lbs on my squats and 450lbs for my deadlifts.
But after that it just seems like a waste. I don’t want to get injuried from lifting these heavy weights. And i am sure that majority of major league baseball players don’t go any higher on their squats then around 500lbs
i know roger clemens was lifting i think 500lbs but he was juicing.
So ya should i stop on the weight, but increase the reps.
