    I'm trying to add pounds just now and i just got a dvd helping me improve my gym posture.
    So when i improved my posture on some moves i had to drop my weight, which i'm not bothered about i'd rather do the move right. But i'm trying to add pounds and the lower weight is worrying me about not gaining muscle.
    Should i really push myself to the limit or nail this posture issue first.

    they are the same thing. if you do an exercise with bad form what that actually means is that it is no longer targeting the muscles it´s meant to: if you do e.g. dumbell flies wrong you do the work with your shoulders and not your pecs. So you can up the weight as much as you want, but it´s still not going to work your pecs unless you do the exercise right. Therefore, dropping the weight to get the form right IS working at your limit, only in a targeted way rather than putting all the work into the muscles that are already strong.

    Kapeesh?
