Don’t increase your total training volume by more than 10% per week. If you’re doing 10 reps of a 100-pound volume, for example, don’t lift more than 110 pounds the next week. If you’re running 10 miles a week, step up to no more than 11. This slow shift helps your muscles, tendons, and joints adjust to the added work, says Higgins.
