  1. Love all your podcasts!
    So helpful on my wellness and fitness journey.
    My question is the last question on your last episode to your guest was what is the one thing he recommends and he said lift heavy.
    I lift 10 pound weights doing 3 sets of 15 for arm workouts . Is that heavy enough? I do reach fatigue , but wonder if I should get 12 pounds or what does he mean to lift heavy specifically?

    1. Hi Amy.

      Thanks for the compliment and for the question. He said earlier in the episode that lifting heavy should be a weight heavy enough to lift 4 to 6 times with good form before failure. I think he said that is for 3 sets. So, being able to do 3 sets of 15 would probably suggest that it’s time to increase the weight and reduce the count. Personally, I tend to do sets of 10 so I probably need to increase the weight too and reduce the count.

      Sometimes I use a lighter weight and do a higher count and then add weight and reduce the count for the next couple of sets. He didn’t discuss that but I find it helpful sometimes.
