The Weight Training ‘Rule’ That’s Actually Making You Weaker

Experienced weight lifters should spend more time lifting weights that vary in size. You can still partake in a training regimen that is high in intensity, as long as you lift weights at 85% your 1RM or more. You should ideally aim for 1-6 repetitions per set, since this will end up maximizing your strength. More volume is usually attained when trainers introduce this variable approach instead of sticking to the same weight each session.

Key Takeaways:

  • The heaviest weight of the set should be saved for last rep.
  • using varied weights to work up to the final heaviest helps to insure gains.
  • the main goal is to push past the previous set limit in order to gain mass.

“Third, past the beginner stage, adding weight to the bar from one week to the next becomes increasingly difficult. It becomes even harder when you’re supposed to top your previous numbers on ALL of your work sets.”
