I'm back with another old school method for building muscle and FAST! There is still a myth out there that low reps build muscle mass and high reps are better for definition and fat loss. For the latter to be true, you need to do reps in the hundreds and not the fives and tens! Think about it, when you're running or riding a bike you're actually doing hundreds of reps during a workout. Low rep training has its place for sure, but for muscle growth (hypertrophy) it's been proven that somewhat higher reps are actually more effective. And for a HUGE metabolic effect and muscle growth, you'd be hard pressed to find a more effective technique than high rep breathing squats or deadlifts. The catch is that every rep after 10 feels like the end! You take deep breaths between reps and just get to 20! Once it's done, lie down on a bench and do a set of 20 reps of breathing dumbbell pullovers. Two important points. First, make sure to do these at the end of your workout. If you think you'll be able to do anything after these, you're in for a rude awakening. Secondly, do NOT wear your weightlifting belt. It will just interfere with the deep breathing required.
