The perfect rep

There is always a lot of talk about perfect repetitions and perfect form in weight training. While I am a purest at heart I can only say that some beginners to exercise will not come to you as perfect weight trainers. So what happens? Well they shouldn’t train in poor form but they do need to develop some form of overload-also they can not stay doing perfect form exercises with no ability to overreach. I tend to think you have to get someone as close to perfect with sensible exercise choices- a beginner may not have perfect form anyway!
