There are so many training routines out there to follow. We only have very limited time to train. How are we supposed to know which one is the best? Well, in my opinion after training hundreds of clients over the past ten years I know that there is no exercise that is the holy grail of all exercises but I believe that there is one variable that when added to any routine will return results on your investment/effort faster than any.
Don’t focus on more reps
Don’t focus on more sets
Don’t focus on more rest
Don’t focus on less rest
Don’t focus on complexity
Don’t focus on different splits
Don’t focus on TUT
Don’t focus on tempo
Don’t focus on form
Don’t focus on conditioning
Now I didn’t say you can disregard all these… you must keep all the above factors in check and included in your training. But the main # 1 aspect of your training to focus your results on and all results will in turn come from it is……
Focus on getting stronger!
My workout today was so simple (I mean basic. It was not simple physically).
Just one exercise, the Clean and Press.
Set 1 3×6 @ 45% 1RM with 2 min rest
Set 2 4×5 @ 50% 1RM with 2 min rest
Set 3 5×4 @ 55% 1RM with 2 min rest
This was the second last round in set 3.
