No. 4: Choose One Strength Move Per Day
If you’re in a strength-training phase, then you’re likely training the big lifts—squat, overhead press, deadlift, and bench.
When you’re planning out each day’s workout, make sure you focus on one of those lifts—not two or three.
Trying to do a three-rep max in the bench press followed by PR attempts in the deadlift is both inefficient and guaranteed to lead to frustration down the road. If you attempt to hit those huge lifts all in one day will over-tax your central nervous sytem, so you won’t get stronger—leaving you with no improved PRs over time.
Remember: This is a strength-focused workout routine. You’re better off building each workout around one big strength movement, then adding in some smaller assistance exercises. If you choose to complete other big lifts, keep the rep range out of a strength-training zone.Back to top
