What’s taking so long?

If your workouts are taking much more than an hour, this will be useful for you. I know mine often do, and whenever I use this easy-to-use trick, I end up having a great workout without spending hours at the gym.

So what is this trick?


The “trick” is really simple. I usually do one or two big compound lifts for strength, and then take the reps up a notch for some pump/hypertrophy work. For the “assistance” work I do, I keep rests around a minute. Sometimes I’ll go even lower, but about a minute seems to be the sweet spot.

Cut the rest periods a bit to up the difficulty. It’s hugely satisfying to get a ton of volume done in a short time.
