PUMP UP YOUR LEVEL
Intensity can be referred to the amount of resistance, the volume of a training, the timing of rest and recovery and even as physiological effects such as diet.
The intensity can be magnified if the rest interval in between sets and even exercises are low. The well trained don’t need to rest as much as the untrained to get results of improvements of strength, power and force. For resistance training according to the different energy pathways you can manipulate your workout according to how long it takes to recover energy levels.
It is almost being forgotten that the load can become heavier if you simply increase the number of repetitions performed or do movements in slow motion. You can increase the intensity of your workout by changing the form you do your sets such doing two exercises at the same time for the same muscle group or antagonists (opposites) adding a certain type of training such as repetitions until exhaustion or even pyramid training.
You may not change your routine and duration of your workout, or even the number of weekly sessions, but if you reduce or increase the number of calories of your diet, you may see a change in the intensity of your workout due to your capability. Other factors could have effects, such as injuries, sickness, and mental state affecting the intensity of your workout too.
