|Training Intensity Principles: Rest-Pause
Rather than ending your set after taking a heavy weight to
failure, rest for 10-15 seconds and then bang out another rep or
two. It is also possible to go on to alternate work with rest until
the muscles you are using are completely fatigued. Rest-pause
should never be done without a spotter present.
By taking these rest periods during a working set, several
positive benefits can b experienced for the bodybuilder:
- Oxygen re-enters muscle
- Metabolic byproducts are
- ATP is
- Good form is easier to
pay attention too
Since the rest-pause training principle is applied in the middle
of an actual working set, you may find that using this strategy
brings you close to muscular failure very quickly. As a result -
make sure you are using a weight you can handle!
