How to increase the exercise challenge
Use the How hard am I working? table to identify how challenging each exercise feels. To view the table click here.
In Program Three aim for each exercise to feel VERY HARD.
This should feel like 7-8 out of 10 (if 10 is as hard as it could possibly feel).
You should feel like you’re challenging yourself.
If an exercise feels easier make it harder.
Each exercise has instructions of how to increase the challenge.
When not to increase the exercise challenge
If it’s hard to perform with good technique
(good technique = slow and keeping your balance).
You’re already exercising VERY HARD (an effort of 7-8 out of 10)
You have increased knee pain and swelling lasting more than one day after the exercise.
