Train what you’re bad at, not what you’re good at

A lot of people focus their training on the exercises that they like and are strong at. It’s important to incorporate some of the exercises that you do not like. If you are bad at a exercise, e.g. a front squat or incline press, look at what is making you bad that exercise and find out how you can make it stronger.

If your front squat is bad and you have small quads you could add in extra belt squat or leg press work. If you have trouble locking out an incline press work on strengthening your triceps or if you’re weak off the chest in the incline press add in some more shouldering press. Improvements in exercises that you are weak at should carryover to related exercises.
