Use Partial Reps To Build Size And Strength

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

So you weight train and you want to develop lean muscle tissue, grow bigger and increase size? Did you know that performing partial reps after your set of full ranged movements will help do this. You could even use this method as a separate set, why? Well, if you think about it, performing partial reps every so often will mean you can add more weight to the exercise. More weight means you will work your muscles more and result in muscle growth. In fact, when you put such a load on your muscles it lets your central nervous system know you are working harder and in turn your body tries to recruit more muscle fibres. Therefore you will stimulate growth and potentially grow stronger.

Next time you hit the squat rack or bench press try this out for yourself. Either perform partial reps separately in a set or immediately after a full range of movement set and feel the burn!! Enjoy ;)
