Key Movements To Build Strength
Getting stronger is a pretty simple and straightforward process. Here’s are some staples that should be in your training for full body strength👇
Focusing on adding weight to those movements each session, week, or training cycle is really all you need to do. If you train hard in the gym and recover properly, your body will respond by getting stronger. If it doesn’t, it’s almost always because recovery was lacking. Focus on getting more sleep or eating more food and that should help. If you still can’t get stronger, it could be a variety of things such as lacking proper volume in your training, exercise form, or another factor that might not seem obvious at first.
Building primarily strength is best done in the 1-6 rep range for 3-5 sets. Some good rep/set schemes for building strength are: 3 sets of 5 reps, 5 sets of 3 reps, 4 sets of 6 reps, and really any other combination of 1-6 reps for 3-5 sets. The key is to progressively lift more weight over time and you’ll get stronger, I guarantee it.
