Wouldn’t it be great if we could increase our strength without spending countless hours in the gym grinding away?
A new concept of strength training known as ‘Neuro-Mass training’ is making the rounds of the fitness industry, and the results so far have been overwhelmingly positive. The concept of this new style of training stems from the ‘time under tension’ philosophy, which basically states that the more time the muscle is spent under tension/strain, the greater the strength benefit.
To complete this workout, there are 3 phases:
- “Grinds” – Grinds are a set of a specific exercises where the ‘up’ and ‘down’ movements are completed super slow (5 seconds up, 5 seconds down) with no pausing. This allows the muscle to stay under tension for between 90-120 seconds.
- “The explosion” – Immediately after working to failure on the “grinds”, using the same muscle group, complete 4-6 repetitions of an explosive movement.
- “Isometric Hold” – Immediately after completing “The explosion”, perform a static hold for around 60 seconds working the same muscle group.
That is all….
Repeat this on as many different muscle groups as you would like and watch your strength skyrocket!
