    Dont ego lift. If you cant lift something without keeping proper form that you cant really lift it. Drop down the weight and focus on that. Dont be one of those homosexuals trying to impress people with their shitty 1/4 rom squats with awful form loaded up, its not impressive.

      I'm homegym so I got no one to impress. I'm just stuck at the same babyweights and lose balance every time I try to push progress. Diet and sleep are pretty decent as well.
      I mostly have trouble with bench and squats.

        Unironically calisthenics. Add them to your workout. If you're pushing babyweight I can assume you're a beginner. Calisthenics are the base of human strength and function (legit just moving your body). Focus on the mind/body connection. Do a push-up and flex your chest at the top, feel your muscle fibers engage. Do a squat with just a barbell, but take a deep breath before getting under the bar. Mentally focus on engaging your core and try to "break" the bar over your back, like you're trying to snap it in half. Only when the bar is unracked do you start to breath normally. If you're failing from balance it's because your form is shit. Try and feel the right muscles on the movements.

          You have weak tendons and stabilizer muscles.
          Use lighter weights, use free weights, increase volume, and perform the reps slower. Go for 3-4 seconds per rep, maybe even 5. Focus on control, so don't just let the weight drop after completing a rep (2 seconds on the way up, 2 seconds om the way down, don't cheat).
          If you lose form before fatigue even then, just lift the weight without locking any joints and stay like that till failure (or very close to failure in case of more dangerous exercises such as bench press).
          Also, do calisthenics like suggested.

        I'm in the same situation. My back gives out before my quads do. So I do high bar until I feel like I can't keep my back straight and then I switch to belt squats until my quads give out. Look up how to belt squat with a rack, bb, and dip belt.

    Walk more. Practice horse stance. Build those core muscles. Yoga doesn't hurt either so you can get some tendon awareness.

    I know this is an unpopular opinion around here but dont ingest caffeine
    Caffeine unironically rapes my mind muscle connection and fricks up my form on every lift.

      This anon gets it. The "spotlight" focus of caffeine robs you of the ability to monitor more than one body part at a time. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the rise of exercise machines couldn't be linked to over consumption of caffeine in society.

        How caffeine effect individuals is different from person to person. Doesn't do shit for me, no matter how much I drink or how many caffeine pills I take in a day, my sleep habits don't change and my overall alertness or energy levels don't change.

        Some other people will drink half a coffee and actually have a panic attack. Or die like with the lemonade thing.

          Same. I can drink a double shot of espresso and fall asleep moments later. I drink usually 3 cups throughout the day and sleep fine at night.

          I should honestly just quit drinking it cause it stains my teeth but every morning i feel like I need it.

          I cant even fathom the "hyper focus on particular muscle" like anon is describing lol. Weed kinda does that to me but it makes me too anxious to go to the gym

      Caffeine is demon juice. No pop or coffee equals a healthy body and mind.

    It might be shocking to hear, but you lose form/balance because you're fatigued.

    It’s just talent bro, you have two left feet. Why do people assume they will be good at lifting if they were shit at everything else is beyond me.

      Lifting isn't hard. The silliest goobers can be good at lifting with less than 6 months of work.

    do your sets slower and more controlled. you will loose reps and maybe even have to go down in weight, but it's worth it. if it's really bad: do low weight high rep. you can even do that with very light weight on days where that muscle isn't used. i.e., bench a weight for 20s that you could get for 30 reps on a back day
