How To Gauge Intensity for Your Workouts

 

How To Gauge Intensity for Your Workouts

By: Aaron Guyett

Intensity is this ambiguous term for most of us...but we can help you gauge it for progress.

Intensity is usually correlated with weight or perceived exertion, and it can be very helpful to know when to ramp up or lower down the intensity for your fitness results.

What weight should I use for what intensity?

 

 

Light weight will usually result in low intensity, which can be helpful if you are trying to grow your muscular endurance or aerobic efficiency, however it will not help with you booty gains, muscular gains, or improving your basal metabolic rate (the amount of calories you burn at rest).

Choose your weight, exertion, and intensity based on your programming, and if you aren’t sure how to program to create a certain results, check out our programs here:

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Social Media Fitness

 

The fitness industry is a wild place. There are so many amazing coaches with phenomenal, useful information that can help a lot of people. On the flip side there’s a darkness to the industry wrought with vanity and potential danger. The key thing with the fitness industry is to be clear on what you want or what your clients need and tread carefully.  It’s easy to get lost in this world of comparison syndrome and highlight reels that even the best-intentioned coach can fall victim to. 

 

 

The Good:

The industry is primarily filled with passionate, well-meaning people looking to share their knowledge and help others. There are so many amazing people to connect with and form long lasting business and personal relationships with.

3 Most Powerful Battle Rope Movements

 

What is power?

Power output is force times distance over time, or put in a simple way it is how much force you can generate over a specific distance within a certain amount of time. Think about a squat repetition...if you load more weight on the bar, squat deeper, and do it faster, it will create far more power output than if you take weights off of the bar, do quarter squats, and do the rep slower, your power output will be drastically reduced.

 

 

The same physics works with battle ropes.

If moving more slack in the rope makes me produce more force, and I move over a greater distance, and I do each repetition faster, I am going to produce far more power output, than if I have too much tension in the rope, move it just a short distance per rep, and move the rope slower, my power output will be drastically reduced.

With that in mind, why would we use arc movements like rainbows, smiles, and figure eights to help produce more power output?

On top of the physics of power...
