Calves are one of the most stubborn body parts to build. Are you doomed to having small calves forever? Here’s 1 advanced method to build freaky cow calves.
If you think you are destined to have small calves due to genetic limitations, I want to show you a very advanced method that will force your calves to grow.
Dr. Jacob Wilson and his team have been experimenting with intraset stretching to produce maximum tension and therefore building new muscle fibers.
First we need to understand that muscle grows using the 3 mechanisms to hypertrophy. For more detailed information on the 3 mechanisms to hypertrophy, >> click here <<
- Mechanical Tension (Lifting Heavy/Myofibrillar Hypertrophy)
- Metabolic Stress (Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy)
- Muscle Damage (DTRS, Super-Sets, Drop Sets, Intraset Stretching
Enter: Intraset Stretching
Intraset stretching takes advantage of 2 primary factors of hypertrophy (mentioned above). It increases muscle damage (max tension) and increases cell swelling also known as the “pump.”
Combing these 2 factors leads to more growth!
Today’s article and video (presented by Bodybuilding.com and Project Mass) will show you a very powerful way to optimize muscle growth for calves by doing seated leg press. Get ready to experience a pain you may not be used to, but it’s well worth it!
Reps 8-12 (Intraset Stretching and Drop Set On All Sets)
Rest 90 Seconds
How to perform: Perform 8-12 reps on seated leg press and on your last rep hold the weight in the stretch position for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds drop the weight by 10-20% and perform another 8-12 reps. On your last rep hold the weight in the stretch position once again for another 30 seconds. Finally repeat one more time for a total of 3 drop and intraset stretching sets.
If you enjoyed this exercise demonstration, here are more 3 exercises where intraset stretching can be done in your next workout.
Applying intraset stretching will help you to get stronger and build muscle size pretty fast.
While this article points you in the right direction, you need a workout that puts them all together for you.
