Suggested Training Manipulations

Sometimes I get the random question, "What can I do to make my workouts a little more challenging?" Here are just a few examples:

  • Increase your training volume (that is, increase either the # of sets, reps, or weight lifted on a given exercise)

  • Decrease your inter-set rest periods (time it using a watch and you'll be amazed how FAST that 30-90 seconds elapses)

  • Use a heart rate (HR) monitor during the conditioning ("cardio") portion of your workout rather than simply judging how you feel.
