Lori Braun’s Training Tips, Part 1

lori-talks-training

Important training tips:

1. To avoid injury, you should always do a light warm-up set of 15 reps before each exercise.

2. Dropset- When you exchange a heavy weight for a lighter one in the middle of a set in order to gain more reps this is called a ‘dropset’. Dropsets are optional and are to be done as the last set of each exercise.

3. Smith machine- Many of these exercises; such as flat bench presses, the incline bench press, shoulder presses, squats and lunges can be done on what is known as the Smith machine for variation.

4. Supersets- When you train two muscle groups together, one after the other such as biceps-triceps, chest-back, quads-hamstrings, calves-tibia.

5. Reps- When you start each exercise your reps (repetitions) should be high. By your third or fourth set, as you increase the weight you should drop the number of repetitions.

    Another hot pic of Lori, with some good, solid training tips in the bargain! :-)

    As well, consider joining the Female Muscle FORUM (!!), which provides a place to discuss things like training, diet, and the world of Female Muscle in general. Lori is there, too, along with Alexa who posted this piece. A real bargain (it’s free!).
