Keep the body guessing!
I love training. I have been reading everything I can get my hands on since I was 18-years-old, and I love acquiring knowledge. I always perform a variety of training styles and techniques in my workouts. I go between heavy lifting days,light days, and moderate days. I incorporate techniques like super-sets, tri-sets, giant
sets, drop-sets, rest pauses, pyramids, negatives, and circuits.
Whatever I do keeps my body guessing, and keeps it very fun for me. For cardio, I do between 3-to-5 days per week, depending on if I’m competing. I do not believe in doing hours of cardio. I keep my cardio duration shorter and rely on HIIT. I believe in lifting and clean eating instead of endless cardio. This is what has worked for me.
I never do the same workout. I keep a log and always change my exercises. I start each workout with a compound exercise to allow me to go heavier.
