The best intensity techniques

by Burak Cemil

 

Have you been following the development of the new training systems and trends in recent years? Sometimes, with the hype about some new training systems, you might think that training to failure is the worst thing you can do to your body. On the other hand, there are generations of bodybuilders and successful competitors, as well as numerous Mr. Olympias, who have built their impressive physiques in the most basic way possible. And the way they built their bodies was with 2 simple tools: classic bodybuilding training and muscle failure.

 

But at this point, no discussion should be conducted as to whether or not muscle failure belongs to successful bodybuilding training. The fact of the matter is that the majority of bodybuilders still use training to failure as a tool in their arsenal and still have great success.

 

However, traditional bodybuilding training does not just mean doing exercises until failure and then stop. Moreover, quite a few also incorporate intensity techniques to further challenge the body and postpone the exhaustion of the musculature. That way an even greater growth stimulus can be achieved and you can finally burst through that plateau.

 

This should be reason enough for you to learn more about the best and most popular intensity techniques as well as a guide for their optimal use.
