Tip for Problem Muscles
Have a muscle that needs more work, or just wont respond no matter what? Here is a tip that I have seen work wonders for MANY people. Quit working the **** out of it and it might just grow. Here is what happens to lots of folks. They have a sub-par muscle, so they throw everything in the book at it and it doesn't grow. They try everything........except hardly working it. I can't count all the people I have seen with problem arms that finally got them growing great by cutting out direct arm work and relying on the work they do for chest and back to work their arms. Because leg work is so brutal most people don't do a lot for their legs. For most people one, or at most a couple of hard sets of squats or leg presses allows them to add weight to the bar and leg size consistently and I have seen countless trainees add 200 lbs to their squat over a short period of time by doing warm-ups and one heavy set of squats once a week. But lets take the most abused muscle in the body....chest. I see people all the time doing 4 exercises for 16-20 sets for chest and getting nowhere. Then if you can get them to reduce to one or two chest moves BAM....chest starts growing. Of course this doesn't work for everyone for every muscle, and some stubborn muscles truly do need more work to bring them up to par. But if you are truly stuck on something you have noting to lose to try this technique. Think about it. If it's not growing now what do you have to lose trying it?
