However, many of us overlook a crucial factor amidst our enthusiasm to get into shape — an understanding of how the limiting factors of exercises can hinder our results and progress.

What is the limiting factor of an exercise?

The limiting factor is the weakest link in a chain or system that causes it to fail. Regarding exercise, specifically resistance training, the limiting factor is the variable that prevents you from performing an exercise well or completing a repetition. These factors could include muscular strength, joint mobility, stability, grip strength, technique, or fatigue.
