Intensity: Our Definition - Hunter Labrada and Bryan Troianello

Today we are going to talk about Intensity. There is definitely different versions of what people perceive as intensity and then there is what Bryan and my definition of intensity along with the more of the advanced crowd's version of intensity.

What people generally perceive intensity is: You go in the gym. You never stop moving. You're killing it. You're taking all your sets to failure. You're screaming and flinging sweat everywhere. you're heart rate is super high the whole time. YOU'RE CLEARLY WORKING HARD. You're clearly expending a lot of energy and its clearly being internal spent. But that is not really intense to me in terms of actual training because it is clearly missing a big component. There is no focus or concentration. There is no execution or accuracy.

ITS LIKE SHOOTING SOMETHING WITH A SHOTGUN INSTEAD OF PUTTING A ROUND RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED IT.

Our version of intensity is going in the gym and using as heavy a weight as possible given the rep range we are going for which is typically 8-12, with perfect or near perfect form. We don't let our form go. Whenever our form is about to loosen if we want to extend the set we either use forced reps while keeping our form locked in or we do a drop set or a rest pause so we are able to keep the form and the intent on the muscle we are focusing on.
