How do I get the best results from my training?

This is possibly a question you’ve asked yourself before. Is there a magical number of days per week I need to complete or a certain split where all the magic happens? Simple answer, NO, there isn’t! Coach X might profess that there is a magical split and it’s the only thing to get ripped and nothing else works to sell you a program, but this really isn’t the case.

Now, obviously the more time you put in each week, the faster you could see results, but this is one part of the equation. Your diet and rest / recovery periods determine a higher proportion of your results but, you can still maximise what you do in the gym regardless of number of days or your split.

So, how do you maximise those results from your program? Two words. PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD.

Ok, so if you’re asking what progressive overload is, it’s as it sounds. Progressive overload is the gradual increase of stress placed on the body during training.

How do you achieve this?

Each week, we need to be looking to get stronger and to continually challenge our body during training. In real world terms, we achieve this by lifting heavier weights, carrying out more reps (this is the reason our programs will say 8 – 12 reps for example to allow for this) or adding extra sets.

Why?

By progressively overloading your body, you will make gains in muscle strength, size and endurance which will have a big impact on the way you look and your overall fitness, simple!

If you don’t believe us, ask yourself why the guy at the gym who does the same workout with the same weights each week always looks the same?

Now that you understand how to maximise your training, we can help you maximise your whole routine from diet and building the most efficient training routine and split, based around YOUR lifestyle.
