What’s Your Favorite Workout?

What’s your favorite rep and set figure? Most likely, it’s the same as the next person, because most of us rely on the notion 3 sets of 12 reps at a heavier weight, 12 to 15 reps at a lighter weight is what we are supposed to do. New research published in Sports Medicine nixes that idea, stating that a fixed figure won’t allow you to maximize the benefits because each individual usually sets a figure based on personal fatigue levels. Bottom line, do what Tom Platz and many other great athletes have done for decades perform the exercise until failure, then do 5 more reps. Play around with 2 sets of four  reps, do compound moves, drop sets or supersets. As we always say in powerlifting “pain is just weakness leaving the body”! Don’t let your muscles control you, use your mind to control and enhance the muscles, you will be stunned at the results!!
