Training Intensity Principles: Instinctive
The instinctive principle is exactly what you may be thinking it
is. It is the technique where you base your exercises on what
muscles you feel should be worked that day, and you perform the
exercises in the order you feel they will benefit you. This may
mean you will perform the same workouts from week to week and only
vary the order in which you perform the exercises, or it may mean
that you workout your biceps three times in the week, while in the
same period of time, take a rest period of 10 days before
performing an exercise for your back. The instinctive principle is
based on working the muscles which you feel are the freshest and
basing your workouts entirely on how you think and feel. The
instinctive principle may be a welcome change from performing your
workouts in a specific way, almost as though you have two drill
sergeants telling you what to do.
