Always looking to impart knowledge on the masses, Charles Glass recently made a post detailing the methods he used to get his clients in great shape. Not only is he able to help top bodybuilders, but he also can help the average Joe get into top condition.
Two Step Rep
Like a pause rep the two step rep allows you to recruit even more muscle fiber to that much more out of each rep. You pause at the bottom of the movement, push halfway through the rep then complete it. This makes your muscles work even harder.
Forced reps are performed with a trainer or training partner’s assistance. While performing the movement your partner helps pushes you through when fatigue begins to set in. This can be done with lighter weight to prevent any injury. The assistance helps a lifter to recruit extra muscle fibers that aids in overall development of the entire muscle group.
By performing two exercises back to back with little to no rest, this doubles the work on the muscles. The more the muscles are put to work the more demand there is on the muscle fibers. This allows for accelerated growth with proper recovery.
The 21’s Method requires the lifter to do partial reps for half the set then lift the weight with a full range of motion for the second half. It’s a pretty brutal method and can be done with 40 percent or less of your max lift. The method is demonstrated by none other than 2008 Olympia champion Dexter Jackson.
