Limited Choice

Afternoon Guys,
 
Did you know that having a limit to how many exercises you do in a workout can actually increase it’s effectiveness.
 
The reason being that if you take out excess you’ll find that you need to maximise what you’re doing with what you have to get the most bang for your buck, thus meaning an increase in intensity and metabolic disruption which leads to more potential progress.
 
I have challenge for you.
 
It will involve 12 weeks of commitment and effort on your part, if you feel up for it then keep reading.

In the first 4 weeks I want you to hit the following targets:
 
– 75 reps per week, per muscle group
– 70-85% average intensity
– Hit each muscle group 2 times per week
– Use only two exercises per muscle group
 
In the second 4 weeks I want you to hit the following targets:
 
– 100 reps per week, per muscle group
– 70-85% average intensity
– Hit each muscle group 2 times per week
– Use three exercises per muscle group
 
In the third and final 4 weeks I want you to hit the following targets:
 
– 125 reps per week, per muscle group
– 70-85% average intensity
– Hit each muscle group 2 times per week
– Use four exercises per muscle group
 
Doing this will give you an idea of what it takes to put together a program that delivers what you need with minimal confusion, take some time to think this through and opt for exercises that give you the best bang for your buck, such as Squat & Good Mornings as a pairing for example.
 
Also remember that an exercise such as Weighted Chins will also sufficiently hit biceps as well as annihilate you back, pair these with deadlifts and you’ve got a great back workout.
 
Enjoy,
Ross
