Increasing weight in your workouts in manageable progressions

Updated: Jul 6, 2019

Whenever you are training and looking to make a weight increase it’s important to factor in not just how much weight you are increasing but the percentage of weight you are increasing. For example, if you are using a 10 lb dumbbell on an exercise and are looking to make the next jump up to 15 lb dumbbells (some gyms don’t have 12 lb dumbbells, some only go up in 5 lb increments). You may think it’s only a 5 lb increase in weight and then wonder why your strength is so much less. It’s because it’s a 50 % increase in weight. That’s a big percentage increase in weight. As opposed to doing 100 lbs on an exercise and then adding that same 5 lb increase in weight. That’s only a 5 % increase in weight and a much more manageable progression. This is where things like plate mate weight magnets and other weight magnets can come in handy. #fitness #exercise #fitnesstip #fitnesscoach #fitnesstips #dumbbells #weighttraining #strength #strengthtraining #strengthcoach #platemates #workouttips #workouttip #exercisetips #gym #dogs #lasvegas #lasvegaspersonaltrainer #fitnesstrainer #strengthgains #personaltrainer
