Dymatize Project Mass Trainer: Cycle 1, Microcycle 3, Day 21
It's high time for your second leg workout of Microcycle 3. This time around, you're going to turn up the volume, build some size, and try blood flow restriction training!
This week, you'll be doing some blood flow restriction (BFR) training. The studies we've done in my lab have shown that BFR training can increase muscle mass faster and with greater effect than regular resistance training alone. BFR may seem scary but, when done correctly, it's a great advanced technique that will help you garner new results. If you're not sure how to do BFR training, be sure to watch the video on the overview page.
For this workout, you actually get a taste of two muscle-building techniques in concert. Instead of employing BFR with straight sets, you'll be doing supersets while restricting the amount of blood that gets to your muscles. If you thought last week was painful, you're in for a surprise! Don't quit early, though. All of those reps matter!
