Parkfit Perth Personal Trainers Recruit Giant Sets to Ignite Fat Loss

Posted by Parkfit Outdoor Personal Training Perth on September 26th, 2017

You have probably been challenged at one point when your personal trainer 
has structured your Perth personal training session like a giant set, something
that is not commonly known about across gyms in Perth. Your lungs are burning
as you look at the barbell in front of you, one last rep is
all you need. Most people are familiar with super sets, performing two exercises back
to back with no rest in between. Tri-sets take it one notch up, by grouping
three exercises back to back. Further up the legacy is, taking it yet a bit
further is the "giant set". The idea behind the giant set is that you perform
four exercises back to back, taking minimum rest between each.

The science behind giant sets is simple. You see, lifting weights has an awesome
metabolic effect (raising metabolism) through a biological response called excessive
post-exercise oxygen consumption and by the stress caused to your muscle fibersby lifting weights raises metabolic rate and calorie burn to a degree much higher than
cardio training.

With giant sets, this effect is amplified further, as you're combining
the anaerobic element of resistance training with the aerobic nature of cardio. In short, you'llburn more calories than you would with a traditional weights workout involving straight sets
and lengthy rest periods = faster fat loss!As for building lean muscle mass, giant sets raise the time muscles are under tension which is a key factor to stimulate new muscle growth. If you hit a plateau, giant sets should solve that problemacting as a catalyst for both fat loss and muscle growth.What's the best way to structure a giant set? Well, here's an example of a Parkfit training sessionusing giant sets to challenge an intermediate client. After warming up, the client will be taken through
a set of reps of each exercise at close to their 10RM (they will be close to failure on their 10th rep).
Rest 10 seconds between each exercise.
After 3 minutes of rest, repeat the giant set but this time perform 12 reps per exercise. Rest 3 minutes.
Repeat the giant set using 15 reps per exercise, and so on so forth until the final round through you are
using 25RM.
Start at week 1 with the assistance and guidance of your personal trainer. You will be doing many reps
with quite heavy weights so your form should be monitored to avoid injuries and periodic correction. In the consecutive future weeks, you can progress either by increasing weight or reps like adding on 2.5kg
to 3kg.
However, unlike traditional routines though, the goal of giant sets is not to necessarily lift heavier
or add reps per set, but simply to perform more work in the given time. That means after week 1,
you could aim in week 2 to get 5 rounds completed in the time it took you to do 4 rounds in week 1.
