Portland Fitness: Repetitions, Intensity & Rest Times Are What Matter

It is not how much time you spend in the gym, it matters how many repetitions, the intensity of the workout/weight and the rest times between each set. In order to get that rock solid, ripped body that so many of us want to have, you have to design your program so it will give you the results that you are looking for. Even if you have a six pack, you may be too bulky, have rounded shoulders (monkey looking) or you just look soft. You need to strategically design your program so that after a certain period of time (periodization) you will be at your goal weight, percentage of body fat and have the look that you want.  You need to be able to bulk up, create density, create lean muscle mass, and still be healthy. If these are things you want to have then you need to do your homework (study periodization training) or hire a professional personal trainer who can help you design and implement your program. You do not have to spend 2 hours in the gym to get that lean/ripped look. You just need to train smarter and keep your diet as healthy as you can.Thanks,Kisar S. Dhillon
