I want to pass on a simple tip that’s recently had a huge impact on my training. In the past year, I took my deadlift from 700 to 750. I increased muscle mass. And, most importantly, my passion for training is back and higher than ever.
It started when I got my program from my coach, Josh Bryant. My workouts were mapped out: exercises, weights, reps, sets, and rest intervals.
Lifters tend to focus a lot on exercise selection, reps/sets, weight and forget about rest intervals. I know I had – I got away from timing my rest periods in my own training and over time I developed a bad habit of letting my sessions extend to 2-3+ hours.
