I think I’ve cracked it.
I truly think I have.
Over the past 17 years I’ve been working out and realistically taking it seriously the past 13 (Jesus – time has flew in)
My philosophy now is that I think I have the perfect routine (Which will be another blog)
But when it comes to weight training – Here’s my take on it.
1 week heavy
1 week light
My goal is always to get stronger and gain muscle tissue. I want to look better, jump higher and live longer. In a nutshell.
I’ve went different routes when it comes to weight training in the past.
Balls to the walls every week going for 1RM and trying to get stronger every single week.
Then on the flipside – Bodybuilding style training in which I’m not trying to get strong – I’m trying to ‘Look strong’
I’ve had injuries – CNS blowouts, been disheartened etc etc.
But nowadays – My methodology is simple.
My heavy weeks – Sets of between 1-5 reps dependent on what my goal is/how my weeks worked out previously.
My light weeks – Sets of 6-12 reps dependent on what my goal is/how my weeks worked out previously.
And I rotate them both.
It keeps me strong – it keeps me building muscle – it keeps me injury free – it keeps training interesting and ultimately… I think it’s the best way.
Try the above method for around 12 weeks – Let me know what you think…
