Quick Strength Training Tip

strength training

Sometimes, I think we are all tempted to rush through our strength training. Try slowing down to work your muscles even harder. Try up for 4 and down for 4, or even an 8 count. The slower count helps you to eliminate momentum so that your muscles have to do all the work on their own. You might try even a slightly higher weight at this pace. Give it a try and you will definitely feel the difference. Have you tried slower paced strength training? If so, leave a comment on what you think.

I have gotten off the couch and moving more, but I need to get some weights in my routine.

I have never tried it before but I am considering it! I am 30 and my toddler is so active, having a hard time to keep up with him.

I do very little strength training because I never feel like I am doing it right.

Slow and steady is a great approach for you then. Give it a try or see a trainer, even once, for some tips.

" The slower count helps you to eliminate momentum so that your muscles have to do all the work on their own."

That's such a great point that I hadn't considered.

I have been working hard on making my muscles work during the workouts - somehow they don't just want to work itself - LOL
