How to Get Strong Fast
We get it, not everyone has the luxury of spare time to hang out at the gym, get those gains and reach their strength goals.
That’s why it’s important to make the most out of the little time you do have at the gym.
With that in mind, here’s a few tips from Sporter.com on how to get strong fast.
Do More Sets
Those who are training for a strength goal with plenty of time, will generally start with sets of around three or four, per exercise.
If you find yourself short on time to get strong then increase the amounts of sets per exercise. Rather than start at three sets, start at six sets.
Adding this amount of volume per exercise will increase your strength and muscle building in no time at all.
Lift Heavier Weights
To get strong you need to lift heavy weights, it's that simple.
While it's advisable to start with light weights and work up slowly, there is no reason why this process can’t be accelerated.
As long as it is safe to do so, increasing the weights each session rather than weekly will improve your strength fast
Train to Failure
By training to failure* on your last set for each movement you are causing the muscle fibres to adapt to the stress of the weight being lifted.
This stress is what is going to cause your muscle to grow and become stronger much quicker than not training to failure.
*Only train to failure if you have a training partner.
Train The Major Lifts
Using dumbbells and machines is cool, and work well for some when gaining strength. But, if you want to get strong quick, then train all the major lifts. The major lifts are:
- ● Squat
- ● Bench
- ● Press
- ● Deadlift
Training these movements regularly will stimulate the central nervous system and increase the amount of testosterone in the body. These are both key factors in getting strong.
