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

Many people weight train to gain muscle mass and strength. Most of those same people will decide on a weigh amount and reps for the day and stick with that weight. The problem arises however, that this causes fatigue and more likelihood of injury. To gain strength and endurance, use varied weights for the different sets, while keeping the step reps the same, as this will allow the muscles to still be working near max capacity, but with less fatigue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many weight-lifters routinely perform their setup and repetition schemes using the same weight throughout.
  • This method, known as the sets across method, is an easy no-brainer, which accounts for its popularity.
  • While it’s a mistake to assume one must use a consistent weight throughout sets, it’s equally a mistake to assume the last set must invariably be the heaviest.

“This imaginary “rule” is likely causing you to leave significant strength gains on the table.”
