3 WAYS TO...

MAKE THE MOST OF REST BETWEEN SETS

-

1. STRETCH OUT

Stretch the muscles you aren’t using – say, your hamstrings if you’re bench-pressing. It won’t affect your set, but it will aid overall flexibilit­y and blood flow.

2. STAY ACTIVE

Try ‘active’ rest, such as performing a few press-ups during a squat session, to keep your heart rate up and maximise fat burn.

3. THINK AHEAD

Rather than mindlessly scrolling, use this time to think through the technique for your next set. Visualisin­g cues like ‘heels down, chest up’ for the deadlift can make a difference.
