Intensity - It can make all the Difference

Intensity is a feel factor. You are the best Judge when it comes to dealing with the truth.

Maybe you have been training very intense or so you think.

You can increase the Intensity by 3 ways

1. Increase the amount of weight you lift

2. Increase the number of reps or

3. Decrease the rest periods.

The first way to add intensity in my opinion should be addition of reps. The best way is the X + 3 rule. In this rule you add intensity by adding 1, then 2 and then 3 reps beyond your target rep zone. When you can perform 3 reps more than the target zone you need to add weights. 5 lbs additional plates for major muscle groups and 2.5 lbs for minor muscle groups.

The second method in line should be the additional weights and then when you have solid training experience you can at time sreduce rest periods just for added intensity.

Advanced Principles to Increase the Intensity in your workouts and take your body to the next level.

1. Super sets

2. Partial Reps and

3. Forced Reps

1. Super Sets

Super Sets is the name given to exercises which are done back-to-back without resting.

For example you can perform T bar rows and then without resting perform Cable Pull downs. Or Bench Press super-setting with Peck Decks. It’s an excellent way to hit the same body part harder giving you the ultimate Weight Training Experience.

2. Partial Reps

Partial reps are half or nearly half reps which are done after exhaustion at the end of an exercise when you do not have the energy to complete full reps.

My favorite exercise is the Squats. As I lift very heavy weights during squats I find it difficult after 4-5 reps, I then do partial reps thereby recruiting those muscle fibers which are not yet fully tired.

3. Forced Reps

This training method requires a training partner.

In this method at the end of an exercise when you are unable to lift the weight of your own, your training partner gives that extra push. I always find that I can do 2-3 extra reps with this technique giving me a killer workout.

Although there are many other Advanced Training methods, I have found these 3 to be the best ones and they receive my highest recommendation.
