I think it’s just as important to understand the goals of training, rather than just the methods. The methods are interesting—I’ve been writing about them for fourteen years, and I haven’t gotten bored yet—but they have a lot more meaning when you know why they exist. I’ll tell you about the concrete stuff—sets, repetitions, weights—in a moment. First, though, ponder these: 29 30 THE NEW RULES OF LIFTING NEW RULE #5 • The goal of each workout is to set a record.
