Four Ways to Maximize Your Strength Training

Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

Maximize your strength training with advice from Josh Eidson, Indiana University's S+C coordinator.

1. Dedicate time to exercises and movements you aren't good at performing. Working only on the moves you're good at builds an unbalanced body.
2. Incorporate sport-specific lifts into your workout. Make your training functional with movements that mimic those of your sport.
3. Go through a full range of motion with each exercise. Doing something halfway means you'll only get half the results.
4. Strength train year round, two to three times a week. The only way to make gains and sustain them is to train consistently.
