Putting On Some Size

June 15 2009

If anybody out there is looking to put on a little bit of size this summer then check out this article I found on t-muscle magazine.  It's about training for hypertrophy using timed intervals rather than repetitions and explains how this modification can help you gain the most lean muscle in the shortest amount of time!   

      

This is a topic that I can definitely relate to because I have been training for hypertrophy and strength gains for over ten years.  I found the article really interesting and am going to try using the set timed intervals for each exercise rather than a specific number of repetitions to see how my body responds to the different method of training.  My goal is to put on a few more pounds of lean muscle over the next couple months and I've tried other systems like ladder training and super setting in the past to help increase the volume and intensity of my workouts so was very intrigued when I saw the headline claiming - "10 lbs. of new muscle in just 4 weeks!" 

I'm going to add the timed exercises into my workouts this week and follow the same split routine that is suggested in the article.  I'm also going to keep my lifts as simple as I can and be sure to include a lot of compound exercises like deadlifts, bent over rows, presses and step ups in every workout.  Wish me luck and I'll keep you all posted on my progress!
