Leave one rep….

TIP March 18th, 2016

“Don’t go to failure; leave one rep in the tank.”

Your trainer is telling you to do the unthinkable—not
to do as many reps as possible on a given set. Instead, he/she wants you to
stop one rep short of the number you could get if 

you gave it your all. By not pushing yourself to
absolute failure every time you lift, your muscles can recover better for your
next set (and workout, for that matter), and studies have shown that you
stimulate muscle just as effectively this way as when you go all-out.
