Running The Stack

By Anne Laing

One of the main reasons 95% of the population gains all or more of their weight back within one year of losing it, is because they don’t train with weights…

Sadly most people have no clue what real intensity is, they coast along doing the “same old, same old” and then give up when it isn’t working.
Here is a quick trick to ramp up the action if you are getting tired of your work outs.

Example; start on your very heaviest weight for 4-6 reps and as you lighten the load increase your reps without stopping – in other words with no rest between the sets!

  • Set 1 – 60 lbs x 6 reps
  • Set 2 – 50 lbs x 8 reps
  • Set 3 – 40 lbs x 10 reps
  • Set 4 – 30 lbs x 12 reps

One of the biggest advantages to this type of training is that it trains your body to get used to a wide variety of weights quickly! If you have been doing the same programme for a long time, your body will adapt to this and find little change.

Running the stack training taps into muscular endurance also and helps break through a stubborn training plateau.

You have to get involved in your health; it is a science, not a fad!
