Portland Personal Trainer | Mixing Up The Routine!

So many of us get stagnant with our workout routines, so every now and then, it is great to just mix it up! So many of us who love resitance training seem to get caught up in doing pyramid sets or the overload principle in order to create an increase in our lean muscle and to challenge the muscle belly! Well, this is a great way to exercise the muscle, but what about switching it up and have the muscle be challenged in a different way, but doing the opposite and then bring it back to an overload principle type of set. Here is what I mean; for example!Chest Press:  15lb Db X 20 reps, 20lbs X 15 reps and then 25lbs X 10 reps (back to back, no rest)Do a set of a core exercise (plank, etc for 60 seconds) and then go right into your second set!25lbs X 10 reps, 20lbs X 15 reps and then 15lbs X 20 reps (back to back, not rest)Do another set of a core exercise of your choice and then rest!This is just an example of how you can structure some of your exercises so you can avoid the same old boring routine. You want to consistently challenge your muscle, so you can work back to back in a long set with variation by starting with a lower weight and increasing it or vice versa. If you are looking for ways to do this, contact a local Portland personal trainer or fitness professional in you area. They will not only create a new stimuli with your body, but the workouts will always be different and it is a great way to really challenge your body.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington StreetSuite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
