Please don’t tell me your training is too easy

February 1st, 2017 by

Please don’t tell me your training is too easy. I could walk into the gym and only do a set of squats and have it be a challenge.

I don’t care if you have 1 set or 20, you bring intensity to your training and not the other way around. If it is too easy for you, you aren’t working hard enough.

Here is a list to help you get more out of your training session

First-Perfect your form.
Second-Focus on tension (if you do this right, even lighter weight can be made to feel heavy).
Third-Get your tempo right.

Once that is in place, start paying attention to how long you are resting.

Got it? Good, now you can increase the weight on the bar.

If all of that fails to provide you a challenging workout, then quit checking social media between sets because you’re not paying attention. You get out what you put in.
