‘Gradually making your muscles work harder over time’
To stimulate muscle growth (aka build muscle) you must challenge your body. How?
- Increase sets/reps
More sets and/or reps of the same weight
- Increase weight
Heavier weight for the same amount of sets/reps
- Increase ROM (Range of Motion)
Combining different ranges can optimise muscle growth
- Increase time under high tension
Exerting yourself during sets and resting for adequate time
Remember... Gaining muscle is NOT a linear process and you will experience plateaus. However, if you are new to weight training it is likely you will see results quickly.
