To lift heavy or not to lift heavy…That is the question. Actually, no it isn’t! You NEED to be lifting heavy if you want to see the best results…

Here’s 5 Reasons Why (Important!) Lots of guys steer clear of heavy lifting all together…OR Just don’t do it right! Is it 3 reps, 5 reps, 8 reps?!?

Find out exactly what it is and how to do it safely!

 how-heavy-should-you-lift-ytI actually hate the term “lifting weights”. Why? It’s not what we do at ATHLEAN-X. In fact, we don’t even “workout”. Nope.

We Train! We train like athletes.

Training is working out…with a purpose.

Training is working out…with a plan.

Are you ready to start “training” with a step by step plan designed for fast results and next level strength?

Meantime, hope you find this video helpful as always!

See you later this week with another new video.



P.S. Seriously, do you ever truly train heavy? If so, how often do you do it? For how long? How many sets? I ask because it ALL matters! Hate when strength coaches draw up programs without considering every one of these things. It can mean the difference between getting results and just plain getting hurt!
