Today's "Ask Lee" : When's the
Optimal Time to Increase Load On the
Today's "Ask Lee", comes from Ahmed S,
Lee, I'm confused about when to increase the
weight on my sets.
example, when you recommend mass routines, you say
do 3 sets of 6-8 reps. Does that mean I should
always keep the same weight for 3 sets or increase
the weight every set while still keeping my reps
in the 6-8 range?
you also tell me what "progressive resistance"
you in advance.
Ahmed, it's a good question, let me clear up any
are protocols for adding or decreasing the load as
your sets progress. However, that's an advanced
topic and as a beginner, you should focus purely
on good form and progressive
resistance, in laymans terms, is the process of
adding additional weight to each exercise . This
is typically determined when exceed the
given rep range you're aiming
example, choose a load that you can complete for a
maximum of 8 reps in good form.
you exceed 8 reps with that weight, then it's time
to increase the weight again. By doing so, you'll
naturally be working back in the 6-8 rep range
That's progressive resistance in action.
This is the foundation of all growth programs,
applying additional load to force the
muscles to grow so they can deal with the
increased stress placed on it.
few final notes.
you warm up thoroughly when you're working in the
6-8 rep range, it's important to get some blood
flowing with a couple of light warm up sets per
last couple of reps in a 6-8 sets, should be
challenging it needs to be tough to be
effective. If you're not having to put forth
maximum effort on the last couple of reps, it's
time to increase the
next time, stay healthy and
lean, live lean!
