“It is understandable that you want your program to show results. But please understand this, if you miss everything else in this entire book: stronger does not necessarily mean more weight on the bar. Resist the temptation to add weight at the expense of correct technique—you are doing no one any favors when you sacrifice form for weight on the bar. Progress stops, bad habits get formed, injuries accumulate, and no one benefits in the long run.”
–Mark Rippetoe, from Starting Strength, Basic Barbell Training, 2nd Edition
