Two Killer Rest Pause Workouts
REST PAUSE WORKOUTS FOR BUILDING INSANE MUSCLE
The last two workouts we decided to get crazy and kick up the intensity. If you want to building muscle you have to work hard and be consistent. The problem is, sometimes you don’t have a lot of time to workout. Kids, family, work, community service takes a lot of your time.
Get these killer workouts NOW!
Well the other day we didn’t have much time to workout and really wanted to get crazy.
Simple solution = Rest Pause
Rest Pause Training
Rest pause training is a style of training for FAST workouts where you limit the rest period between sets of an exercise. You take a weight that you can perform 8-10 good reps and use this weight for all of your sets with that exercise.
By limiting the rest between sets you never fully recover (metabolically or neurologically) before your next attempt. A high lactic acid environment is created and when this happens natural growth hormone is released. Boom you get big muscle growth.
This training is not for the BS trainee. It takes a TON of intensity and you have to be mentally tough. But the rewards are HUGE.
Also, rest pause training is very neurologically taxing, ie. it will mess you up. Make sure during your downtime you are recovering and preparing for the next workout.
Now you have NO more excuses for skipping a workout because Rest Pause workouts take very little time! Your workout will be cut literally in half.
How to Rest Pause
Rest Period: 10-25 seconds
Load: 8-10 RM
Hit the first set for 8 reps, wait 10-25 seconds, pick up the same weight and hit is again for as many reps as possible. Wait 10-25 seconds, go again. Repeat this for 4-5 attempts.
Count up the total reps you did and have your partner try to beat it. Or, you try to beat the reps next time you repeat the workout.
