We all struggle with the motivation to work out and keep active at times, heck - even us personal trainers do. So how do you find fitness motivation, incorporate it into your life, and hang on to it in the long run?
Stuck in the same old "3 sets of 15 reps" rut? With weight training it can be very useful to switch up the way you compose your workouts with different types of sets. Whether your goal is endurance, hypertrophy (increase in muscle size) or strength, here’s an overview of sets to help serve as some inspiration to push you further towards your fitness goals.
Sometimes, as we strive and push ourselves to reach our fitness goals, it’s easy to forget that the body needs rest to allow us to hit reach that dream body we’re working so hard towards. It’s no secret that lifting weights creates microscopic tears in your muscles, that can only repair during rest. It’s true that you can train different muscle groups every day, but it’s not always advisable to do that without planning a rest day in between somewhere.
