Are You Using The Wrong Weights?

June 08, 2015 1 min read

Weight lifting is a powerful way to strengthen and tone. It burns fat, wards off your risk of developing osteoporosis and improves your heart health. Most of us follow the golden rule of weight lifting: 15 to 25 reps per exercise (which could mean 8 sets of 3, or 5 sets 5 or 3 sets of 8) But if you're not using the proper weight for your exercise, this can throw your progress right off! Here is how to tell which are the right weights for you: Pick a weight and do 25 reps. It can be any weight (5 pounds, 30 pounds) and any exercise (squat, military press). Keep track of the number of sets it takes to finish all the reps, and see where you fall on this scale. TOO LIGHT 1 to 2 sets JUST RIGHT 3 to 5 sets TOO HEAVY Over 8 sets If you need 6 to 7 sets to finish the 25 reps when you can usually handle this load, take a break and try again in a few days. If you still hit the 6 to 7 mark after your break, consider lowering the weight. Try this method and share your results with us! Leave a photo in the comments of how you like to hit it at the weight room, or your weight lifting before and after!
