12 sets of 1

We know we say this a lot here at Point Blank. But, how you lift is more important than how much. 

We can find ourselves going through the motions with our training, and this extends to individual sets. We tear through the first 7 or 8 reps to focus on the ‘business end’, only really exerting effort for the last 2 or 3 reps. 

Yes, rep 1 will always be far easier than rep 10. But, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t aim to maximise these early reps.

Focus on sound technique with measured, controlled lifting each and every rep. Control the negative, with a 2-3 second count, and pause for a 1-second count between each rep to remove momentum. For isolation lifts, squeeze the target muscle at the peak contraction of each rep. 

Treat every rep as it is the only one in the set and give it maximum focus and effort.
