Strength Training Rep Count


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When doing strength training, I find I can begin to get frustrated when I'm counting reps, particularly on the third set. The solution for me is to count down instead of up. I start with 10, 12, or whatever my top count is and count down to one. Then I get more excited as I go bc I'm almost done.
