Strict Reps Principle




In bodybuilding, strict repetitions are often ignored. Bodybuilding is an aggressive, independent sport, and focus on form is sometimes ignored. Strict repetitions are self explanatory. They refer to performing each rep of the set with strict form. For example, a regular barbell bench press would be performed without bouncing the weight off the chest using a regular speed, not to quickly or not too slowly. For the barbell curl, you would curl the weight, bringing it up to your chest at the top of the motion and bringing it down to your thighs upon completion. The upper arms should stay tight against the sides of the body and you should not thrust the weight using force from your back.

Using the strict rep principle will prevent you from applying some other shock principles. For example, you will not be able to perform the cheating method if you perform strict reps.

If you are a beginner, performing strict reps is extremely important. For safety reasons, you should always focus on performing the motion properly until you get used to it. So the strict rep principle should be the first principle you apply. As additional training sessions are completed, you can move on to other shock principles, but this one is a good place to start!
