Shocking

by Westside Barbell on June 03, 2019

Shock Techniques have been used for decades to entice muscle breakdown and blast through plateaus. While popular and most common to bodybuilders, if your progress has stalled or are looking for a way to spice up dynamic effort training this weekend, give one of these few a shot...

-Supersets (2 moves back-to-back with no rest)

-Giant Sets (3+ moves back-to-back-to-back with no rest)

-Ultra High Reps (50+ reps per set)

-Drop Sets (performing a set then dropping the weight by a certain percentage and immediately performing a second set with no rest)

-Pre-Exhaust (performing as the first exercise an isolation move, then as the second exercise a compound to hit the same area...this could be standing hamstring curls, which is next followed by RDLs..)

 

Get a Grip...
