Training Troubleshooting, Four Common Bodybuilding Errors : Lifting too heavy a weight

Lifting too heavy a weight:
Also known as "ego lifting", this is probably the most common problem guys have in the gym. There's just something about the male ego that makes many guys want to load up the bar with as much weight as possible and attempt to workout with it. I'm sure we've all seen that skinny guy who struts into the gym, 

selects a weight that he can't possibly handle and then proceeds to try to do multiple reps with it. Unfortunately, this can lead to improper form (more on this in a bit) and injury. A general rule in the gym is to check your ego at the door. Choose a weight that you can handle and that allows you to perform the exercise in perfect form and without risk of injury.
