THE RIGHT INTENSITY
We can define the right intensity by the number of reps (or movements) that we are able to do in an exercise. The more reps I can do, the lower the intensity of the exercise I am doing, will be. Using an experimental analysis the following table was developed:
between the maximum number of reps and the percentage of the max. load.
can be undertaken percentage
of maximum load
maximum intensity is therefore what I can achieve with only one movement.
is the maximum amount of reps we are able to do in one exercise. For example:
I have to do 6 pull ups on the pull up bar when I could have done 10, that is no
good. I should manage 5 and hardly
complete the 6th. I could for example diminish the size of the hold.
the exercise tells me to do 6 pull ups, and I cannot even complete the fourth
pull up, this is still not good, I therefore need to use an elastic to alleviate
It has to be sufficiently low for me to execute the correct movement. If I have to complete a set of lateral movements, for example, for a total of 6 movements, the problem is not arriving to the end of the set but finishing in total control (I do 6 movements, but I could have done 12).
