Failure Equals Success With the Weights - Lifting For Optimal Muscle Growth from Jessymeshak's blog

Try to do at least ten minutes of any jumping activities One And Done Workout Review five times a week. This can include jumping over hoops or logs. If you don't have any of the equipment, you can buy a skip rope and practice on it. Not only would this improve your leg strength, it also improves your balance.

Today I was at the gym and once again amazed by some of the self trained experts there. There are average looking guys that I see at the gym on a daily basis who seem to be making no progress yet are increasing their weights and spending an inordinate amount of time at the facility. What gives. They all have two things in common.

The one factor that links them is the form they use when doing each repetition. Here's the thing, if you cannot do one rep with proper form, why would you decide to up the ante and do 10 reps with poor form. It makes no sense. None. To Anyone. You are demonstrating that you don't know what you are doing, and to complain the machines don't go high enough in capacity and cobbling together a method of strapping plates onto the machine isn't showing the world how strong you are. It's showing how ignorant you are.

The relief is that ignorance can be cured...with knowledge. Whew. It's more a less a weigh lifting guideline that you should be aiming between eight and twelve repetitions per set. If you can do more than 12 good reps, increase your weight. If you can't do six good reps, decrease your weight. Simple as that. Don't cheat by using your body momentum or by using two arms to do a one hand dumb bell curl. I am not making this stuff up.
