Has your bodybuilding program lost its powerful returns? How can you maximize your work out to build more muscle mass? It starts with the current intensity of your current work-out program. Once exercise becomes dull and easy, changing the way you train is inevitable. Use the following checklist to pump up the volume of your body building regimen.
Stretch those muscles to warm them up prior to working them.
Add more weight. When weight lifting repetitions no longer fatigue the muscles more weights are needed. Add weights in small increments: three pounds, five-pounds, 10-pound and so on. These weights are not limited to the barbell and dumbbells either. Hand weights or even wearing a backpack filled with heavy books may offer the type of intensity to your strength training program. These alternative weights can work to strengthen other muscles in your back and forearms. Remember, more weights may call for fewer repetitions; however you may gradually work up to 10 per set.
The objective of the front lunge is to end up in a position where the front leg is bent at a 90 degree angle with the thigh parallel to the ground and the lowered leg vertical. With your legs shoulder-width apart and hands braced on the hips, lift the right leg and take a giant step forward into a lunge position The front leg should be bent with the back leg straight. The knee of the front leg should not exceed the area past your toes. In one complete motion, return to the original standing position. Next, repeat the movement with the left leg.
This exercise may be reversed and completed by taking a step backward into the lunge position because it works the muscles via another range of motion.
As with any training program, medical expertise is recommended.
