How much should I exercise during a typical workout session and how many time during the week should I work?
These are questions I get asked a lot!
It is of course not an easy thing to do to build up your own workout programme.
On the one hand there is the internet, which is a great source of information. You can google and search for whatever you want to know online; how to get big bigger arms, to develop your chest, to get bigger, to get stronger, etc.
When it comes to practise, however, it is a different story.
Over the years, many people have come to me, asking for the perfect workout programme, asking what should I do to succeed in the gym?
For me, there is a central problem here in that many people seem to be confused by what it means to be fit as a starting principle.
'Fit', for example, is a word that is used everywhere for analogous reasons.
So, let's be clear: To my mind being fit is to be able to perform an exercise utilising good form and to repeat those movements over a structured sets without taking too many break in-between.
As such, the first thing to bear in mind is that the intensity of your session equates to the quality of your session.
