HOW DO I GET MORE GAINS IN THE GYM?
Muscle confusion is a practice of changing up your lifting or fitness programs to produce better results. If you remain stagnant and perform the same exercises, at same rep count, and same number of sets . . . your performance will remain stagnant as well. Muscle confusion occurs by changing up exercises, rep numbers per set, and length of rest periods. If you hit a sticking point in your training point and you cannot break through a plateau try one of the following:
Super Sets: Compound sets are great for an athlete looking to gain muscle but limited on time. How do Super Sets work? You will work opposing muscle groups with no rest in between. (Example- 1 set of bench for chest, followed immediately with a set of lateral pull downs). This allows for your chest muscles to rest and stretch while you keep focus on a completely different motion and muscle group.
These are some examples of muscle confusion techniques. Doing something as simple as switching up number of reps or weights can also assist in producing different results. Remember there is no magic program that will guarantee success. Use fitness science to guide you towards your goals.
