Training Tips - Building Stamina - March 2008
I was recently asked about building stamina. The person told me about how they are doing sets of
20 to increase their stamina. The first thing I mentioned was that doing sets of 20, 30 or more
would do nothing for stamina. Now note that this is coming from a person that did sets of 500
hammer curls. Yes, 500! I was using 17lb dumbbells. I was mistakenly told that doing high reps
such as these would increase stamina. I started out doing sets of 200 and built my way up to 500.
However one time I decided to keep going as far as I could. Well I reached 800 reps.
