2 Keys to Increase Your Lifts

So we all want to lift more? After all we equate lifting more with being stronger and it’s how we measure whether we are making progress in that regard right? So what can we do to increase our lifting?

There are several things that will go a long way.

The first is change things up week to week. Do more reps, one week, less, the next, and less the week after. As you decrease the reps you are going to increase the amount of weight you are lifting. This keeps things different for your muscles, causing more muscle groups, when you’ve dropped your reps down so low that are maxed out for weight, start the cycle over and go back to high reps.

When you start the cycle over you will find that you are able to lift heavier than when you first started. Continue to repeat this cycle. Ideally set your cycles up on 4 week cycles. So high reps the first week and continually decrease them over the next 3 weeks, then repeat the cycle. We are talking more about this in this week’s podcast episode.
