Fitness Tip of the Day: Intensity Is Most Important
In order to build muscle, your training routine doesn’t have to be a set of extremely complex movements with varying rest intervals and complex pyramid repetitions that only Archimedes could figure out. Quite the opposite is true in fact.
A study published in August of 2014 found that resistance training preformed at a high-intensity was more important than various exercise protocols thrown into one. The study found that rest intervals or even order of exercise actually made no difference in strength increases over a 12-week workout program.
In fact, the study said that those factors can be done at personal preference while still achieving the same effects! So no matter what, keep your workout routine at a high-intensity to see maximum results!
