    Hey,
    When it comes to some compounds I don’t feel the muscle connection nearly like I do on isolation/more direct work. Ex) bb bench press vs db incline or peck deck, or squat vs leg extension.

    Is the goal on compounds to create as force production or scale back the weight to get a better mind-muscle contraction?

    I’m currently 7weeks into ppl2 and on compounds the given rep range is always 6-8. Which the lower end of that ends up being relatively heavy.
    With progressive overload being king, and the repeated message I hear of making sure to progressively overload compounds, I find it’s easy for to just focus on moving the weight rather than make it feel heavier and squeezing the rep out. Not that their ugly reps, if it’s getting to technique break down I call it a set.
    Would appreciate a little insight to help me dial in on the right mentality.
