The “Time Flies” Method is a unique Muscle Buster that relies on time under tension as opposed to max resistance.

I’ll typically schedule this into a workout using a bodyweight movement, such as Bench Dips or Jump Squats, and it’ll look something like this:

Bench Dips x15 sec on & x15 sec off (10 rounds) (TIME FLIES METHOD)

This means we’d perform Bench Dips for 15 seconds then rest for 15 seconds, repeating the cycle until we’ve done it 10 times through. This type of training is very effective for driving small muscles to failure, because one run through this is 5 minutes of work.

It won’t always be 15 seconds, either, so watch out!
