“Express Weight Training” proven to work

New York Times storyThis article from September 2018’s New York Times health section discusses a research study which examined what effective weight training programs might look like to build significant strength gains.

“An inspiring new study of how much—or how little—weight training is needed to improve muscle’s strength and size finds that we may be able to gain almost the same muscular benefits with a single, brief set of each exercise. The catch is, that set has to be draining.”

This goes to show how big gains can be attained through smaller amounts of exercise, especially if you push yourself to failure!
