6 Techniques to Build Your Dream Physique Fast


Anyone who has been training for more than a year knows that at some point muscle gains will start to slow, and in some cases, stop.It’s not necessarily that you’re doing anything wrong, it’s just that your body is adapting to training; in other words, it’s getting used to it. This is when you need to change things up to keep your body guessing. Follow this 6 techniques in your training routine to make gains

NEGATIVE REPS
You are stronger in lowering a weight than you are in lifting it. Your spotter will help you do the positive portion while you do the brunt of the work on the negative portion. For amateurs, I do a full set of negatives while they’re still fresh. Pros do negatives for 3–5 reps at the end of the last set

PARTIAL REPS
You can keep the set going and target a specific part of the muscle. For example, a half cable curl targets the peak of the biceps. Do three to five partial reps during the last one to two working sets of an exercise

PAUSES
A two-second pause at the midpoint of the rep minimizes momentum, maximizes time under tension at full contraction, and recruits more muscle fibers. Do pauses for the last two to four reps of the last exercise

SUPERSETS
These are done by performing one exercise followed immediately by another exercise with little to no rest in-between. For the second exercise, I encourage targeting the same body part from a different angle and training to failure. Dumbbell flyes and pushups are an FST-7 superset that I like

DROPSETS
By reducing the weight after reaching failure, you can get additional reps and extend the set. Generally, it’s a 25-30% reduction for each dropset

INTRA-WORKOUT FLEXING
Flex for 15-20 seconds during FST-7 sets or the last set of an exercise. For chest and shoulders, do a most muscular or side chest pose; a front double biceps for arms; for legs, stand in the front relaxed pose and put pressure on the outer part of your foot. For back, a back double biceps pose; for abs an abdominal and thigh pose

  1. Body Building is essential to the structure and function of all living cells and is the building material of muscle. Protein is probably the most important nutrient for a bodybuilder because it's used by the body to build, repair and maintain your muscle. Supplements play a major role in body building so I always prefer to use MaxNo Extreme muscle builder supplement that does not cause any harm to the body and is totally natural.

  2. Please correct me, if I'm wrong, but you describe compoundsets, they target the same area, not the opposing like supersets do.
