Some of the most common questions I receive from trainees revolve around repetitions and weights. They want to know many repetitions to perform and how much weight to use.

After training for a while we all tend to fall into ruts of always using the same favorite exercises. Those favorite exercises are usually those that are effective and seem to work with our natural bodily movements – those that suit our bodies well. There is nothing wrong with sticking with what works for your own body, but sometimes to break through a plateau in your progress you need to make some changes. That’s where a bit of muscle confusion can be extremely valuable.
