So many different kind of training is available now that I am also confuse what kind of training is right for me. We have yoga, CrossFit, Power lifting, bodybuilding style, Running, Calisthenics, high intensity interval training (hiit)
and some suggest just swinging the kettle bell at home for a workout.
Different kind of training engage your different muscle group, most of the people actually have a mixture of high weight and low rep for strength mixed together with high rep and moderate weight for your endurance muscle.
For myself I like to mix around different kind of workout to shock my body. To make sure that all kinds of muscle fiber is hit. Keeping an open mind is certainly very important, reading on the Web and saying oh this bodybuilder did this kind of training and he is like this, so his workout surely will be able to get me to his size. But remember we only see that one hour of his workout, thru out the day you don’t know what else he is doing! He may have other secret training that he don’t wish to reveal.
likewise during cutting phase, you can see a lot of people doing depleting workout, super high reps but did you see what they did before the training?
To me there is no right or wrong training, every kind of training has its own strength. If you see results, just keep on doing. Just my take.
I Recently have been doing a 4 sets routine.
first set light weight for 20 reps
2nd set 15 reps
3rd set 10 reps
and end off with super heavy 5 reps
if you are unable to complete the reps, pause for 5 to 10 sec and continue.
i ensure that all my muscle group is hit. Give it a try.
