Strength Training

Strength Training

Strength training involves different concepts altogether when it comes to personal training. Despite what some think, strength training is not only for powerlifters and males. Training for pure strength requires a few things.

1. Most important of all is to MAINTAIN GOOD FORM. Seems like a no brainer; however, having bad form will definitely injure you in this sport because of the heavier weights used. Which brings us to the next concept.

2. Repetitions are low ranging from 1-6 repetitions and the weight is 80-100% of maximum intensity. In other words, it’s heavy!
3. Movements are mostly all multijoint. Exercises such as cleans, bench presses, squats, dead lifts, snatches, and clean and presses are all staples.
4. Break time between sets varies but is generally higher. It ranges anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes for maximum strength output in every set.GTS- “Weight Loss Delivered”
