Its always the simplest workouts that build the most muscle.
Case in point is this new little gem I’m falling in love with. Here’s how it works:
– Select an exercise that’s basic and strength based like push ups or pull ups.
– Do one set for as many reps as you can.
– At the end of the set rest for 30 seconds. You can use a stop watch but I find a clock with a sweep second hand works best.
– After 30 seconds do your second set for as much as possible once again.
Repeat for 4-5 sets.
Your goal is to try and match the number of reps from the set before. I know it doesn’t sound like much. Using timed rest periods is nothing new, but adding the timed rest to working until failure is a unique combination that’s sure to boost your workout to a new level.
Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
