Welcome everyone to Ask Todd Saturday.
Today, we have a great questions from Theunis about determining the right amount of training. It can be challenging to determine if you’ve done too much or too little within a single workout session.
In the video above I answer Theunis question. If you’d like more detail, here is the exact submission.
Dear Todd, I have been following various exercise programmes. I am disciplined in my approach, sometimes to my own detriment, especially with body weight programmes. The reason being that I usually over train. For example, the programme says till failure and I will do till failure and won’t be able to continue. Another example is if the programmes say 10 reps, I will push out 10 reps even though I know I cannot sustain that effort. Thus, my questions, how does one determine the right amount without over training or not doing enough? I don’t have a benchmark (Being a male and 33 years old) and always feels that I either could have done more or should have done more, even though I might have done too much. I am competitive and sometimes my own worst enemy when competing against myself. - Theunis
