How Much Weight Should We Lift In Our Strength Exercise Program?
To determine how much weight that we should lift in our strength exercise workout is a process of trial and error. Always start with a low amount. It is better for us to start with too little than too much.
Try doing 8 to 12 repetitions, which is our goal of strength workouts. If we can easily complete 8 to 12 repetitions, we should increase the lifting amount by one increment. Try again to complete 8 to 12 repetitions.
When we reach the point that we can no longer complete 8 to 12 repetitions, we should decrease the lifting amount by one increment. This is our lifting amount for strength workouts.
Additional tips for strengthening workouts are
- We should warm up for about 5 minutes before lifting.
- We should complete the entire range of motion for each workout.
- We should be able to perform movements smoothly. We may be lifting too much if our motion is jerky.
- Don't forget to breathe! We should breathe out when lifting and breathe in as we return to our starting position.
