WEEK 3 Train – Making it “hard enough”

Key points:

  • To make sure you are working hard enough in your workouts, focus on the following factors in the order given below:
    1. Form – perform exercises with correct form and full range of motion
    2. Tempo – a slower tempo will bemore difficult than a fast tempo
    3. Weight selection – use a weight heavy enough to challenge yourself
  • Training at home comes with a number of limitations
    • Lack of equipment means the amount of weight you can lift is limited
    • No gym staff to make sure you are safe and training correctly
  • Grip strength
    • You may be limited on some exercises by your grip strength
    • If you have problem with grip, you can use a set of lifting straps
