Training Techniques For Transforming Your Physique

These techniques have been bee proven to be very effective in muscle building. They have been compiled by the top exercise physiologist, fitness instructors, and personal trainers. You will be guaranteed in seeing positive results by putting these tips and techniques in action. Muscle building is a gradual process, and the body will take time before it gets adapted to the training.

Some of these techniques can be very discouraging and frustrating as they can be very intensive. Choosing the right technique is very important because what works best for your friends or colleagues might not be suitable for you. In fact, some of them are known for causing massive muscular stimulation and other side effects such as over stretching of the skin. The following are the main training techniques that are helpful in stimulating growth and muscle building.

German volume training

This technique involves performing ten sets each having ten reps. It is one of the extreme shock techniques. Every successive set is performed using the same load or weight. The resting time between these sets is about 60-90 seconds. The first three sets are performed easily, but the others are a bit challenging. Individuals performing this exercise are allowed to use a voluminous pump once they have reached the eighth set. A searing pain might be felt in the muscles after every rep. Once you are through with your session, you should give your boy ample time to recover before attempting again.

Compound exercises

  • This is a heavy resistance training that is helpful in stimulating the massive growth of the body muscles. This stimulation is achieved by increasing the production of testosterone hormone. Just as the name suggests, this exercise involves several muscle groups. These muscles are activated simultaneously through intense and heavy compound exercises all of which sends important messages through your body. this, in turn, increases the production of growth hormone,testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone, insulin-like growth factor-1, and leutenizing hormone

Pyramid sets

weightlifting-pyramids

This is among the most frequently used techniques. It consists of 3, 4 or 5 sets. The user should begin with light weights and then progress to the heavier ones after each successive set. The rest time between successive sets is about one or two minutes, but this is dependent on the individual’s training goals. This is a technique that allows the user to warm up their muscles.

Plyometrics

This is another effective training technique that is designed for creating powerful and quick movements. These movements are helpful in improving the functionality of your nervous system. Plyometrics involves stretching f the muscles rapidly (eccentric action) followed by a shortening or a concentric action of the connective tissue or muscle. By so doing, the body can utilize the stored energy within the muscles to generate more force than the one provided concentric actions. In general, this technique uses elasticity, strength, and innervations of the surrounding tissues and muscle to run faster, jump higher, hit harder or throw farther depending on your desired training goals.
