You NEED structure with your workouts if you have a strength or fitness goal.
It’s totally fine if you’re going for enjoyment & want to do what’s fun or taking a break from pursuing a goal,
BUT, if you’re hoping to build strength, muscle, fitness or perfect a lift,
You need to be tracking what you’re doing📝 here’s what I recommend:
▪️Write down your reps & sets - aim to make small increases most weeks where you’d rate the whole set of exercises 8/10 for difficulty
▪️Increase difficulty by increasing the weight, getting a greater range of motion, performing the exercise with better technique, squeezing the muscle you’re working, slowing down the reps (adding a pause, or pulse), doing more reps, doing more sets, trying a harder variation.
▪️You’ll save time if you have a plan. There will be no faffing around and thinking about what to do. This means you’ll probably feel more accomplished at the end of your session.
▪️Quality over quantity. If you’re following the principles above & you’ve just started a new training regime, try hitting the gym 2x per week & build up from there if you’re enjoying it & recovering well (you’ll know if you’re recovering well because you won’t be too achy & you’ll have energy for your workouts & you’ll be improving).
Do you write down a programme for the gym?
