Is your weight training really effective? Follow the advice of Romain Maier, weight training coach at the Domyos Club, to reach your goals and ensure across the board success.
Your body needs to adapt to the effort required from it, so increase the frequency of your training gradually as well as the intensity of your workout.
In terms of the frequency of your training, do not set overly ambitious goals. It is better to train two or three times a week all year than every day for 2 months.
Give priority to the correct execution of the movement rather than the weight you are working with.
The training benefits only appear with rest phases. Do not neglect them. A muscle group needs 48 to 72 hrs to recover completely.
Your body needs to adapt. Depending on your body shape and your goal, it may sometimes take several months for the results to become visible. Don't get discouraged.
Optimising your training
If you wish to maximise your chances of reaching your goals, turn to professionals or coaches who will be able to suggest a tailored training programme.
Final tip: get some suitable weight training equipment to boost your performance!
