What the Hell are carpet arms I hear you ask!

 

Patience my little gym monkey we will get to that later in the email

 

So a few weeks ago I gave you guys a free workout

 

Giant sets for arms

 

A few of you guys tried it and said that the pump was insane and that it was one of the best arm workouts you had tried for sometime

 

As I said before giant sets is one of my all time favorite methods of training.

 

However

 

I had a few emails back the following days asking if giant sets where all that effective for building muscle

 

The general consensus or concern was that due to the high volume and minimal rest between exercise’s strength levels would decrease rapidly thereby not being able to lift sufficient weight to stimulate muscle growth.

 

Fear not

 

Those of you that are in the know or have been keeping up with my free info know that there are more ways to stimulate muscle growth than just pounding out heavy ass weights all year long

 

With the above approach Most of you will be used to hitting those fast twitch muscle fibers, targeting your anaerobic energy system and stimulating the high threshold motor units

 

Otherwise known as myofibrllar hypertrophy

 

This training is great and it’s what most people enjoy doing

 

Lifting heavy, screaming and shouting the gym down and acting like king Kong in the gym when they have just done a 150 kg bench

 

Then immediately out come the imaginary carpets under each arm and a little waddle around the gym cos they have just done a big lift.

 

That’s carpet arms or more commonly known as imaginary Lat syndrome

 

You know who you are J

 

Anyway…

 

How about trying to stimulate muscle growth at the other end of the spectrum

 

 

It might not look as impressive to all the gorillas in the gym but trust me most of them will be outside spewing there guts up after this workout

 

And remember

 

If you train the muscle in all styles of training through a periodised plan surely more growth will be experienced

 

Fewer injuries will occur

 

Meaning more time in the gym

 

Meaning more muscle growth

 

Win win situation

 

Anyway enough of the talking here’s the workout

 

Warm-up

Bike 10minutes

3 sets leg extensions 20 reps

 

Giant sets x 2-5 (starting at  2 sets every week add a set until up to 5 sets)

Hack squat narrow stance 6 reps

Hack squats wide stance 6 reps

Neutral stance leg press 12 reps

Plyometric Lunges 20 reps

 

Week 3-4 add in

FST 7 Leg extensions x3

 

Now I know what your thinking

 

It looks easy

 

Give it a go then tell me it’s easy

 

What you’ll experience from this type of workout out

 

Unbelievable pumps

Massive build up in lactic acid resulting in huge surges of anabolic muscle building hormones

Working the body aerobically

Plenty of screaming

No imaginary carpet under the arms, youll be to busy laid on the floor crying

Sarcoplasmic muscle growth

Greater rate of body fat being used

 

There you have it

 

I have been utilizing this rep and set system on all body parts over the last 2 weeks and experienced a significant reduction in body fat and an increase in my overall body weight.

 

It doesn’t get better than that

 

Proof that hitting different muscle fibers and energy systems can simulate new gains
