How do I determine what weight to use for the workout?Updated 2 years ago

Choosing the right weight is important, yet it does take some experience to be able to judge this yourself, and some days you may not be able to go as heavy as others. A general rule for measuring this is if you are not struggling slightly on the last two reps then you are too light, if you are dying half-way through then you need to dropdown.

Some sections of our programs have percentages listed for the weight that you will be lifting. These are percentages of your one-rep max and your program will tell you at the start how to measure these. This information is important to track as you want to make sure you are pushing yourself in your sessions.
