Rep Targeting Intensity Method
To Help Get Through Plateaus.
Rep targeting is a workout intensity method perfect for busting through a workout plateau.
Here's how you'll do these..
Pick a certain amount of repetitions that you want to perform, and do that number of reps no matter how many rests or sets it may take you.
For example: Let's say you want to do pullups for a total of 50 repetitions, but you're only able to do 5 or 10 repetitions at a time...
You would stay there by the pull up bar, resting as many times as you have to, until you get to that number of repetitions you're targeting.
This intensity method is great for exercise movements that you may not be strong at. It will help force your muscles to work extremely hard by continuing to push out your reps with no certain amount of rests or sets preplanned.
The idea is to just push through the exercise, and be more stubborn than the muscle, by setting a specific number of repetitions and executing that number no matter what it takes.
Do this intensity method whenever you feel you've reached a plateau, and are looking to go beyond what you are normally able to do.
This intensity method is great for giving yourself an added intensity boost.
Use this technique sparingly.
