🎯 3 WAYS YOUR MUSCLES GROW BIG
- “Just lift heavy,” the powerlifters will tell you.
- “Go for the pump,” the bodybuilders will say.
- “Do something different,” the CrossFitters will advise.
Often getting the best results in the gym is a combination of all 3.
🔥 We need to focus on 3 mechanisms in a single workout.
- Stimulate load, tear muscle fibres and get a pump/burn when needed.
INCLINE PRESS | UPPER CHEST✅ Muscle damage is the tearing of muscle fibres known as micro tears/micro-trauma. It’s elicited by slow negatives, extended range of motion and high tension in the stretched position of the muscle. Variety in exercise selection and trying new movements also does the trick.
✅ Mechanical tension means heavy lifting. You want to generate the largest muscle force possible through a full range of motion. You want to get stronger over time and progressively overload.
✅ Metabolic stress is essentially training for the pump or a big burn. This can be done by doing higher rep sets and also using intensity techniques such as dropsets, giant sets, pyramids etc.
