I bet you’re wondering what does that mean, I’ll gladly explain, after a few words to let you know there are two stages and two methods of setting the stage.
Stage I, is for home workouts, just have your equipment available and set ip for the workout. If you’re lifting have a set of lighter weight than projected and a set of heavier weight than projected. Why, especially if you’re keeping a record; because our strength at least mine vary. There are days I am able to lift much heavier as well as days I have to go lighter to maintain form and get a specific number of reps in. Should there be additional equipment such as airless ropes, resistant bands, a towel. Okay the towel, I use for my air boxing workout the agility round(don’t knock it ’til you try it).
Doing a home workout and setting the stage, definently prevents those many times of interruption by the pause button, and slowing the burn of the workout until you resume.
Stage II a gym workout, know exactly which weights and what machine you’ll be using. For now I’m sure there is no wait time due to COVID, however in the future just do a rapid walk about so your energy stays high. I know for me and I’m not the only one that wait for use of a machine will make a big difference in the response to muscles as they have cooled down and now you have to slowly build them up again to tolerate the lift or quad muscles for the squat or for that treadmill run.
This week and every day of your workout “Set The Stage”
