Metabolite Training For Muscle Growth
This method of training involves utilizing supersets in a specific way. Instead of supersetting antagonist muscles (Bicep curls with Tricep extensions, etc), it involves using the same muscles to produce tremendous muscle damage.
This method is great for growth and I’ve even been utilizing it as a rehab tool lately. I broke my thumb back in late November and had a cast on until the end of December which made my hand and forearm muscles pretty weak as well as painful to do any pressing movements with heavy weight because of the bar resting on where I broke it. However, I found supersetting the dumbbell flyes with dumbbell bench press, like the example below, really helped to still tax the chest while using lighter weights. Just some food for thought if you’re looking to work around an injury with lighter weight, this could be a valid method.
Ready to get started? Pick an isolation movement such as dumbbell flyes and do that for 15-20 reps. Then, move directly into a compound movement that utilizes the muscle you just isolated. For this example you could superset the dumbbell flyes with dumbbell bench press for 6-12 reps. Repeat this cycle for 2-5 sets.
This could also work well with hip thrusts as an isolation movement for the glutes and then supersetting it with squats if you’re looking to grow your glutes. For the lats, try a straight arm lat pulldown supersetted with pull-ups or regular lat pulldowns even. I guarantee you’ll feel a wicked pump and burn with this method.
