How to Know When You’re Hitting Fatigue in Your Lift

by | Apr 13, 2023 | Podcast

What if you knew during your lift, if your body put itself into a certain position,  that you had hit fatigue? What if you knew exactly how many reps and how many sets to do based on what your body was telling you? That is what we’re gonna talk about today.

This topic is near and dear to my heart and comes from 14 years of clinical experience treating patients from a rehabilitation, strength, and autoimmune perspective. There is a certain pathological position your body will naturally default into when it is fatigued or it is nearing failure in an exercise. I call it extension compression compensation. In this episode, I’ll talk about how this position happens, when you see this, how this is improperly cued by trainers, and how this positioning leads to injury.
