CHOOSING THE CORRECT WORKING WEIGHT
How do you know that the weights which you are using are correct?
Although this programme is generic, everybody is different. So, in order to maximise your progression it is important that you select your ‘working weights’ to target your specific ability and goals.
The table below will give you an idea of how many repetitions you should be doing for each exercise to support your goals.
These intensities can be generic throughout your workout or different for different exercises and muscle groups.
Speed of movements
It is generally recommended to perform your resistance exercise in a slow and controlled manner.
Try to always follow a 2:1:2 speed ratio,
this is 2 seconds in one direction :
1 second pause at the top of the movement : and 2 seconds in the other direction.
In addition, this video will give you some more information on how to choose the right ‘working weight’.
