Repetition

A repetition is the act of lifting and lowering a weight once in a controlled manner. A set consists of several repetitions performed one after another with no break between them. The number of repetitions per set depends upon the aim of individual performing the exercise. Sets with fewer reps are performed using more weight. Repetition tempo is also an important factor.

Different Rep Range for Different Goal:

  • A set of 1 to 4 repetitions primarily develops limit strength, with less impact on muscle size (Hypertrophy)and none endurance.
  • A Set of 6 to 15 repetition develop a balance of explosive strength, muscle size (Hypertrophy) and endurance.
  • Sets of 15 to 20 repetitions develop endurance, with some increases to muscle size (Hypertrophy) and limited impact on strength.
  • Sets of more than 20 repetitions are considered to be an aerobic exercise.

Individuals typically perform one to four sets per exercise, and one to three exercises per muscle group, with short breaks between each set. The duration of these breaks determines which energy system the body utilizes: for example, performing a series of exercises with little or no rest between them is referred to as “circuit training”, and the body will draw most of its energy from the aerobic system.

Weights for each exercise should be chosen so that the desired number of repetitions can just be achieved. Each exercise should be performed according to its description.

Breathing Technique

Always exhale on the concentric contraction and inhale on the eccentric contraction.

Types of Grips:
