Designing a Weight Loss Specific Program, Part 1

How many sets?

The number of sets to be used in a resistance training program designed for weight loss is inversely related torepparttar number of repetitions being performed. The lowerrepparttar 143073 number of reps,repparttar 143074 higherrepparttar 143075 number of sets and vise versa. Typically, for weight loss programs I keeprepparttar 143076 number of sets inrepparttar 143077 range of 2-4, emphasizing compound exercises (ie. performing more sets, 4, for compound movements and fewer sets, 2, for single joint movements). Studies have shown that multiple sets are more effective than single sets in producing a growth hormone response. Therefore, multiple sets are needed, again, in order to achieve a hormonal response that is conducive to body compositional changes.

Rest Intervals

One ofrepparttar 143078 most overlooked variables isrepparttar 143079 amount of rest taken between sets. Rest intervals, like every other variable, need to be specific torepparttar 143080 goal ofrepparttar 143081 resistance training program and is influenced byrepparttar 143082 number of sets and repetitions being performed. Fewer reps, more rest, and vise versa. For weight loss purposes, rest intervals should be inrepparttar 143083 range of 30-60 seconds. Rest intervals too short or too long will compromiserepparttar 143084 training effect.

I hope this begins to shed some light onrepparttar 143085 need for specifics when designing a program for weight loss. Of course, these variables may need to be manipulated on a case-by-case basis in order to account for individual differences, such as training age, work capacity, etc.
