Small Exercise Big Results

Exercise order is an important variable in training. Sports medicine research has indicated that greater strength increases are evident for the first exercise of a given sequence. When an exercise is placed at the beginning of a session, regardless of the relative amount of muscle mass involved, the total repetitions and thus the volume of the exercise becomes greater. Prioritizing a muscular area by placing it first in an exercise regime and addressing variables such as load, rest interval between sets, number of reps, will influence the effectiveness of the development of this area.

In sport the littlest of things often matter. The role of the hands, fingers and forearms in athletics are immeasurable – catching, throwing, shooting, fighting for a ball, manipulating aiming, adding velocity to a stick, wrestling, tackling, hand fighting, grabbing an opponent and much more are important reasons to emphasize this musculature regions development. The lower arm and hands are usually placed at the end of an exercise routine, yet by periodically placing them first can be a game changer.

An athlete may be surprised how difficult lifting can be even when the load is small ——- the reward is not.
