Hi, this is Jason Morgan with Muscleworx Fitness in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Today, we're going to discuss ways to build muscular strength and endurance. An example of a giant set that you could use to help build muscular strength and endurance, utilizing the chest for example, would be putting together three exercises with no rest in between each movement, exercises such as the flat bench press, an incline bench press, then a dumbbell incline or flat fly movement. Now, your compound movements are going to be your two bench presses, the incline and the flat bench. So, we'll start with the flat bench. We're going to sit down, get in our proper position, perform six to eight repetitions, immediately move to the incline bench with no rest other than the time it takes to get from one bench to the next. Sit down on the incline bench, proper position, perform your six to eight repetitions. Now is where the trick comes in. We're still going to jump over to our fly movement, utilizing dumbbells on either a flat bench or an incline bench. We want to hop on that and we're going to increase our number of reps here. So, we're going to go to the 12 to 15 rep range for that spinal burnout type of movement. We've got three movements put together, no rest in between, take those movements out, perform about three sets and you'll increase your muscular strength and endurance. Please remember, these tips are just to provide basic information. Always consult with your health care provider and a fitness consultant before beginning any diet or exercise program.
