Superset Workouts
By Administrator
How To Spend Only 4 Hours A Week In The Gym

If you want to spend less time in the gym, you’ll need to superset your workouts
and get more done in less time.

Not too long ago I received a question from a person who was using supersets (I
already congratulated her on the choice to make her workouts as efficient as
possible in the short amount of gym time she had).

“I was wondering how long I can use this supersetting system. Is it possible to
overtrain even with 2 sessions a week? Will my body eventually adapt also to
this system and should I break the routine for a month or so?” Read the rest of this entry »

I confidently preach low volume, infrequent workouts that are based around the universal laws of overload and progression (training with maximum intensity and progressing in weight or reps from week to week). Anyone who truly understands the fundamentals of strength training realizes that these basic guidelines are all one needs in order to reach their goals of increased muscle mass and strength. I mean seriously, how much more is there to it than that? Read the rest of this entry »

Should you workout when sick
By Administrator
Who doesn’t catch a little cold right in the middle of the week when your
workouts were going so great? There’s been many times that my workouts were
100% the best I’ve ever had and right when I was on top of my game – I caught
some cold bug and it frustrated me to no end!

How many times have you asked yourself this question or been asked yourself?

“I was wondering if workouts (cardio, weightlifting or both) should be halted
during a common cold or if you should “sweat it out” as some say. Read the rest of this entry »
