How can I vary a weights session?
There are many ways an individual can vary a weights session, to not only keep motivated but to constantly see progress and improvement. It involves changing variables that are very easily done. These variables include:
Speed: changing the speed of the repetition by slowing it down;
Order: changing the order of exercises in your program;
Recovery: increasing or decreasing the recovery depending on how much load you are lifting;
Weight/Reps: increasing or decreasing these variables to either work on more strength, or building muscle;
Sets: by including super sets, drop sets or circuit based sets you can totally change a routine to create many desired effects.
These variations not only allow for an improvement in physical strength and size, they will also keep you motivated and fresh.
