This is whenrepparttar 134928 flax seed oil and fiber isrepparttar 134929 most potent (it starts to lose potency when exposed to air), and so you getrepparttar 134930 most benefit.

You can find fresh whole flax seed at health food stores and natural grocery stores such as Whole Foods. You can also order it on line from companies such as Stevens Farm, which grows its own flax and cleans and grades it for human consumption.

2) Do as many reps as you can in good form, and then write downrepparttar load used (orrepparttar 113066 color ofrepparttar 113067 elastic band) andrepparttar 113068 number of reps.

3) Rest EXACTLY 20 seconds.

4) Do another set of as many reps as you can. Obviously, you wonít get as many reps this set as you did on your first, provided you challenged yourself onrepparttar 113069 first set, and assuming you're not some sort of genetic Density freak. 5) Rest EXACTLY 20 seconds. 6) Repeat steps 3-6 usingrepparttar 113070 same load each set until you get to a total of 50 reps.

7) Once youíve achieved 50 reps (or even up to 100 if youíre an advanced trainee who knows they respond better to higher volume), youíre done!

8) On your subsequent workout, youíll do everything exactlyrepparttar 113071 same, EXCEPT, youíll cut your rest periods by 5 seconds to 15 seconds.

9) Once youíre down to 5 second rest periods, you can move on to something different (ideally a routine that stresses progression by Load or Acceleration), or you can repeat this routine for one more cycle using slightly heavier loads.

This is only one variant of Density Training you could employ, but itís one ofrepparttar 113072 simplest, and thatís why I like it so much!
