Strength is loosely defined as your ability to lift or move a maximal load one time. So why are you sticking with the same old ‘3 sets of 8 to 12 rep’ program in your attempt to get stronger? In order to add pounds to your lifts, you need to train closer to your one repetition maximum. Utilizing set and rep schemes such as 5 sets of 5 reps or 8 sets of 3 reps or established powerlifting protocols such as 5-3-1 will get you training with higher intensities and, ultimately lead to you moving heavier and heavier loads.
