Moving weight vs working muscle

There are two ways to lift. Moving the most amount of weight from point A to point B or to feel the muscles working to achieve a certain look.

If you are involved in a performance-based sport such as rugby, MMA or powerlifting you will be more concerned about the weight you put on the bar to build strength and power.

Your goal is to really feel the muscle working. A set is typically executed with moderate poundages and under control.
