Top
 2. Should I work the entire body at every workout?
 

Entire body workouts usually make the most efficient use of time. Of course, there is no reason you can't work different muscle groups on different days. However, beginners are less likely to over train any individual body part if they're working the entire body in one workout.

Top
 3. How many sets should I do per exercise?
 

Some suggest that once the muscles are thoroughly warm (after performing a couple of light-weight warm-up sets) you should do one all out set to failure. Others suggest that you should perform 2 to 4 working sets to failure for each exercise. Almost everyone can agree that if you end up doing 30 sets for any individual body part, you are definitely overtraining (assuming that you take these sets to failure) or just wasting your time (assuming you don't take these sets to failure).

Top
 4. How many times per week should I lift?
 

Some beginners make fine progress training the entire body three times a week, a Mon, Wed and Fri routine, for example. Other beginners require more recuperation time and make gains training the entire body only once per week. People differ and so do individual muscle groups. Some muscles can be trained more frequently than others. Find a routine that is comfortable for you and allows you to make progress. If you aren't making any progress consider the possibility that you are overtraining (quite common) or even under training (less common).


Many factors determine the frequency of one’s workouts: physical status, time availability, proximity to a gym, etc. You should not be so concerned with the number of days you work out but more concerned about the effectiveness of each workout.

Top
 5. Should I be concerned about the amount of weight I lift?
 

Initially, no. The most important thing for a beginner is to learn proper lifting technique. However, the basic principle of getting larger through weightlifting is progressive overload. You must increase the weight (load) so that the muscle will be forced to adapt to the increase in stress.

Bouncing and moving the weight too quickly will not stress your muscles into growing and it will likely stress your joints unnecessarily. Remember, that for bodybuilders, the goal is not to lift the weight. Weightlifting, for bodybuilders, is merely a method to stress the muscles. A bodybuilder should work the muscle, or muscle group that the exercise focuses on, not try to heave the weight up by any means possible.

There is a difference between lifting a weight and working a muscle, although it basically comes down to using proper form and technique. For example, if your lower back becomes stressed from doing biceps curls, you should consider paying more attention to working the biceps, not trying to get too much weight up by throwing out your back.

Top
 6. How fast I get in shape?
 

Your body must adapt to stress gradually and training is considered a stress.

Overzealous training can lead to burnout and possible injury. Rome wasn’t built in a day and you can’t expect your physique change rapidly. Be patient and give time for your body to adapt.

Top
 7. Can I train when I’m ill or seriously injured?
 

Your body has problems fighting multiple stresses simultaneously. Training (a stress) along with fighting an illness or recuperating from an injury can be very counter-productive and possibly dangerous.

Top
 8. What makes the workout with KOSMODISK LIFE Training Set so effective?
 

Workout with Four-way Training Set engages all the major muscle groups for easy-to-performer, yet intense and effective full-body workout. During your workout body keeping your heart rate elevated so you burn more calories and fat.

Top
 9. Doesn't my body need time between exercises to rest and recover?
 

Yes, each muscle group does need downtime between sets. In order to strengthen the muscles, make sure to have short rest after each exercise. Also perform a short stretch of muscle group you have been working with.

Top
 10. Should I warm-up my body before start practicing on Four-way Training Set?
 

Warm-up is essential. To warm-up your upper body, sit on the ball and lift up your arms 10-15 times.

Top
 11. What is the major concept of workout with Four-way Training Set, if I want to lose body fat?
 

By sequencing 3 sets of upper/lower/upper (or lower/upper/lower) with 1 set of exercises for torso, you're giving each region a time to rest, but still keeping the cardiovascular system engaged. The result is more efficient fat and calorie burning-and faster results.

Top
 12. Why is it important to train all the muscle?
 

All the muscles of torso work together to stabilize your muscles and they enable you to perform rotational movements.

Top
 13. How often should I do my workouts with KOSMODISK LIFE Training Set?
