Do You Stagger?

  • Don’t combine staggered sets with a pure strength, competition, movement.
  • Don’t exhaustively train the core during overhead movements or any others that require, ‘peak’, core stability.
  • Grip work will be affected by pumping up your forearms.
  • Training the opposite end of the body can avoid changes in form.
  • Exercising the neck muscles before other efforts can be impairing.
Daniel Craig and Chris Hemsworth realize action films need more than cosmetic appearance.
  • Do a set of pull ups between sets of Turkish Get Ups.
  • Between upper body super sets, do walking lunges.
  • Calf work between upper body sets.
  • After a timed set of Sit Thru’s, do dumbbell laterals or curls.
  • Front and side planks between sets of lunges facilitate hip mobility.
  • If your whole workout is push ups and kettlebell swings, splice in some face pulls and face-the-wall Hack squats.
  • During machine work, stability is less of an issue so go ahead and squeeze in your abdominal work between sets.
