Home workout with no equipment part 2:

Is Your Workout Harmful To Your Health? πŸ€•

A lot of times people are under the misconception that higher repetitions are safer.

So they smash out sets of 40+ pushups on the regular. Then their shoulders and elbows start killing.
And they wonder why they aren’t making any progress. No muscle growth, no strength gains, no fat loss.

The reality is high repetitions can actually be more dangerous

It’s harder to maintain perfect form and focus for 20 repetitions than it is for 6. And when your form starts to break down the last thing you want to do is crank out another 10 shitty reps that will lead to more mileage on your joints.

  • Higher reps cause more of the stress hormone, cortisol to be released.

  • Higher reps cause more inflammation.

  • Higher reps cause more overall systemic/CNS fatigue.

Most people will get far better results sticking in the 5-8 rep range on the majority of exercises.

As you get stronger and more advanced you can bump that up to 8-12 on certain upper body movements, and as high as 15-20 on some lower body movements.

But your bread and butter will always be in that low to moderate rep range. This is just one of the countless mistakes that I see people making all the time.
