Workout Intensity

I’d like to say my workouts are always intense but I have to be honest with myself. Not every session is monumental. There are some days I feel strong and some I feel weak. There are days when I’m full of energy and others where I’m tired. This week has been one of those ‘super weeks’ as I’ve had a tremendous amount of energy and feeling strong.

There’s a few areas I have to give credit to. One is I’ve been eating more food and better food this week. And diet is usually the greatest factor. Another is I’m doing more techniques like rest-pause, supersets, and drop sets. Lastly, the new preworkout I’m on may have something to do with my increased energy and mental focus; Nutrex Outrage. And the Instant Knockout supplement could be attributing to this as well (these are included in my resent post: June 2015 Supplement Stack).

I’m listing my back and biceps workout from this morning. The main technique I used this morning was doing a high-rep set on my final set of some of the exercises. There’s also a good mix of heavy weights used.

Workout intensity is imperative for muscle growth. There’s no way around it. A half-ass job will render half-ass results. You can’t just show up. You have to work, and work hard. You also have to work smart. You want to lift heavy weights but you also want to stimulate the muscle with a lot of reps.
