The muscle buster to end all muscle busters, welcome to the Mountain Method.

This method combines pause reps with unilateral work to create a f**king insane amount of metabolic stress within the working muscles. You’ll fight, you’ll cry, and more importantly; you’ll WIN.

To perform the Mountain Method:

  • Set the weight to something you’d usually choose for 20-25 reps.
  • Now we’re going to perform 1 rep left arm, 1 rep right arm, 1 both arms…
  • 2 reps left arm, 2 reps right arm, 2 both arms…
  • 3 reps left arm, 3 reps right arm, 3 both arms…
  • 4 reps left arm, 4 reps right arm, 4 both arms…
  • 5 reps left arm, 5 reps right arm, 5 both arms…
  • If you make it this far, your “reward” is to go back down the mountain in reverse order. Warning: This will give you a shoulder burn like never before. Enjoy.

Here’s a video in which I use this method on a Shoulder Press:
