If you are not doing this, you’re wasting your time

We all know that person who shows up at the gym every single day but doesn’t get any results. Most times, it is simply because they are not training with adequate intensity.

When you are training to get stronger or are trying to build muscle, it’s important to make your working sets “HARD ENOUGH”

After every set, ask yourself this question. “If I had a gun to my head, how many more reps could I have done?”

5 or more reps left in the tank: Increase the weight

0 reps left in the tank: Reduce the weight. This is also known as the injury zone

1-2 reps left in the tank: BOOM! Keep going!
