#gymshark66 day 23/66
Going to start reposting older videos I have & kind of explain what’s going on and advice I have!!
So with any major muscle group (legs,chest,back,shoulders,etc.) It’s most important to start with a compound exercise. You’re able to handle the most amount of weight & should prioritize your energy expenditure on lifts like these. For legs this will be squats. For chest.. bench. For shoulders here, it would be shoulder press! Other important things to be mindful of is form, volume, and progressive overload. Someone who is consistently adding sets/weight and mastering their form will have much better results then someone who does a few sets with no strategy in mind.
Another thing I want to touch on in this video is INTENSITY. Simply put some of you guys don’t try hard enough in the gym and in turn mediocre results 🤷🏽♂️ . If you’re barely breaking a sweat, constantly checking your phone, and just kind of zoned out.. odds are you are not making the gains you COULD.
In this video I had 4 sets of 10. (3rd set shown) & I could have easilyyyyyyyyy stopped at 8.. but I knew I had sets of 10 programmed for that day so I pushed through it and got my last 2 reps. (While maintaining perfect form) Not saying every set has to be grindy and to failure but just bite down and push out some more reps. You’re capable of a lot more than you think in the gym you just have to put your mind to it 🔑
