Here’s a Muscle Buster that’ll get the target muscle screaming for mercy.
To perform this method:
- Look at your workout to see designated reps. If it reads 15/20 then load your machine with a weight you’d expect to reach 20 reps with.
- Perform the first chunk of reps in the peak contraction range (on a biceps curl this is the top half, on a triceps pushdown it’s the bottom half, etc).
- Perform the second chunk of reps with a full range of motion.
In a workout it’ll typically look like this:
LEG PRESS x10/20 (3 rounds) (HALFWAY TO HELL METHOD)
This means we’ll perform x10 reps in the peak contraction phase of the rep (on a Leg Press that’s the bottom half of the move) then straight into x20 full reps.
