When it comes to strength training, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Everyone has different goals, training methods and preferences. It is important, however, to consider whether your workout is as efficient as it could be and whether it’s giving you the best results.⁣

At Titan, our values are based around health, performance and achievement. We like to push you to maximise your performance and achievement without compromising your health and safety. It is for this very reason that we are huge advocates of the One Set Training Method. ⁣

The One Set Training Method is a simple but effective strategy to get the most out of your workout. It is a slow-tempo technique that involves each set being performed just once. This ensures each rep performed is high-quality and maximises time under tension (this enhances metabolic response and muscle growth). This technique also makes your workout as safe as possible, with no pain and minimal risk of injury.⁣

By shifting all your focus and energy to one set as opposed to multiple sets, you are giving 100% to each set. This makes for a far more efficient workout as you are doing more in less time. The One Set Training Method also increases your focus and engagement as you are not having to repeat the same not-so-mentally-stimulating reps over and over again.⁣

When employing the One Set Training Method, it is still important you maintain effective weight training habits. This involves training at an intensity that challenges your muscles, and focusing on all three parts of each movement - negative (eccentric), static (isometric/pause) and positive (concentric). This will maintain muscle growth and preservation, and ensure you have a quality workout every time.⁣
