Are you someone who simply doesn’t have the time or will to spend hours in the gym? Guess what? You are not alone, and you don’t have to! The amount of work you put in is not equal to the amount of time you’re in the gym. The trick is learning how to strength train properly while you’re at the gym instead of spending the most time there. When using a more effective and efficient method you can get the same or more benefit from one set of reps that a person doing three sets gets! Training smarter, not harder can save you time in the gym and provide optimal results. But how does it work?

There are several studies that show that if you work your muscles to muscular fatigue or “failure”, you will see better results than those who complete several sets of the same movement without that intensity. The goal is to go slow and steady until your muscles are fully fatigued (about 2 minutes) and you cannot achieve another full rep. Slowing down the movement removes the assistance from momentum getting your muscles to “failure” faster, this is the deepest stimulus you can give your muscles then you are ready to move on to the next muscles group without having to perform 2 more sets. Another benefit to slowing down the motion is it removes excess force on your joints making this method safe!
