Heavy Single Days…..
Why do we build to “heavy singles”?
The “heavy single day” isn’t necessarily a max out day, but a day to look at mechanics issues and fix them. By building to a heavy single it allows the coach to see where breakdown occurs and address it. Going light is great to build form and technique as well as build a base of strength, but unless you start moving weight that is challenging and do-able (for more reps than not) the coach cannot address where the movement falls apart.  If you lift too heavy without getting proper feedback or fixing issues and actually make the lift, you more than likely got lucky. You made the heavy lift in spite of rather because of technique.
