How to reach your goal in the gym

When working out in the gym, there are often questions of how many reps (repetition) and how many sets and what weights are best to use. This all depends on the goal of your training. Strength, muscle mass or endurance.

A quick tip is that the more reps the more endurance. And if it’s primarily strength you are looking for then static (isometric) or eccentric (when extending your muscle) training with slow motions builds strength faster than fast concentric (when you contract your muscle) movements.  Today I found this great post that explains how to work to achieve your goal.

Visit evanstang.com and read this great post on how many reps and sets in the gym!

It’s all about training right, not harder 🙂

    Aye, this reminds me that I NEED to get back to the gym. I really like the cross training machines.
