Whether training in a fully stocked gym or training at home, attention to detail is paramount! The tempo prescriptions were selected to produce specific biochemical responses, as well as the exercises selected and the order they’re presented, so please perform the training programs as written.
The only program design parameter you should manipulate are the rest periods. During the initial training session, you might feel the rest periods are either too short or too long, depending on your current cardiovascular fitness levels. In which case, adjust the rest periods as needed. However, be careful not to reduce the rest periods too much, as this will negatively impact the number of reps performed, thereby minimizing the training effects of adding/maintaining muscle mass.
Another important factor to consider is proper exercise form. Optimal exercise form means optimal results. Please ensure you use a full range of motion for each rep, as demonstrated in the exercise videos. Partial range of motion will negate the optimal muscle fiber recruitment and fatigue, thereby providing a limited training effect.
As always, my ebooks utilize training techniques I not only use with all my clients, but techniques I use in my own training. Remember, we’re all in this together!
