Fine tuning your workouts to ensure you’re doing enough to get optimal results is difficult. There are so many variables that come into play and understanding how they impact your results is a game changer.
Building your workout is like putting a puzzle together. If you’re missing a piece, you can’t finish it. If you put the wrong pieces in the wrong places, you end up with more pain, and possibly more injuries, than you thought possible.
To get the results you desire from your workout, you have to have the right pieces of the puzzle and volume is a huge piece of that puzzle.
I’ve been there too. I’ve worked daily in the gym without seeing the results I wanted. It wasn’t the exercises, the lack of drive or motivation, or the nutrition. The key was the volume. The number of reps, the weight, etc.
Our bodies need and want to adapt to something new. This adaptation causes our bodies to grow and that’s what you’re looking for. Growth can be anything from muscle growth to improving speed to losing weight.
To get results and find growth, you need to push your body to adapt by adjusting your workout volume.
There must be enough repetitions, total, in your workouts to encourage adaptation. However, repetitions aren’t the only variable important to the volume in your workouts. Weight, repetitions and the number of sets you implement each workout will affect the results you get from those workouts.
Knowing how much of each one of these variables you need and how they work together is the true trick of understanding how this puzzle fits together. To get the best results from your workouts, you have to increase your volume in weight, repetitions and sets gradually enough to avoid injury but to promote growth.
Finding this zone will lead you to your personal “growth zone”.
The synergistic combination of the right amount of weight with the right number of reps and sets and gradually increasing each, will lead you to your “growth zone”.
Find your growth zone to ensure consistent improvement and results. Moving too fast with too much will lead to injury and burnout. On the other hand, moving too slow and not increasing your volume will leave you frustrated and wanting more from the time and effort you put in.
Finding the right combination and implementing the right amount of volume for your workouts will lead to your best results. We know this can be difficult.
