Would it be useful to learn an established way of strength training your muscles in a scientific way ?

There many variables to determining what sort of exercise program you should be folllowing

There are a number of very simple factors which are common to successful training programs

  • 1. Sensible and informed eating
  • 2. Intense exercise
  • 3. Adequate rest
  • 4. Adequate warm up and injury avoidance
  • 5. Chopping and changing the program, and variety of movement angles

So to achieve this do you really need to get to a full commercial gym?

No, I don’t believe that you do.

There are a  number of ways to increase intensity

  • 1. Increase weight
  • 2. Change Speed of movement
  • 3. Reduce rest between sets. Below 30 seconds and you are staying in the fat burning zone

When looking at reducing time between sets it may be a good idea to look at Giant sets. These are movements using the Push Pull method.

Such As:

Chest : Back
Biceps : Triceps
Quads : Hamstrings
Calves : Tibialis Anterior
Glutes : Hip Flexors
Hip Abductors : Hip Adductors
Front Deltoid: Rear Deltoid
ABS : Lower Back

By the way this is the way that a sequential super circuit should be set out in a commercial gym.

This allows you to get the maximum volume of work in the shortest period.

As your Triceps contracts, then your Biceps must relax to allow smooth movement. That is until the range of motion reaches the point at which the stretch reflex is activate and the biceps flex to prevent over extension.

During this movement you bicep has been almost totally relaxed during the movement. Now, with minimal rest you move straight into a bicep movement during which time the triceps can rest.

Although those muscles are resting, you are not!

Personally I have set up maximal “to Failure” sets with up to ten different exercises with less than 20 seconds break in-between.

Ideally the movements would be

  • Chest Press (Chest, push) Vs Chest Support row
  • Lat Pull down (Lats, Pull) Vs Incline Chest  Press)
  • Bicep Curls (Pull) Vs Tricep pushdowns (push)
  • Leg Curl (hamstrings) Vs Leg Extensions (Push) Using Optional Leg lift accessory
  • Stiff Leg Dead-lift (hastrings, push ) Vs  Narrow Stance Body Weight Squats (quads, pull)
  • Crunches (abs, pull) Vs Lower Back (Push

Other examples of Opposing Muscle Groups for use in Compound Sets:

Chest : Back
Biceps : Triceps
Quads : Hamstrings
Calves : Tibialis Anterior
Glutes : Hip Flexors
Hip Abductors : Hip Adductors
Front Deltoid: Rear Deltoid
ABS : Lower Back
