The Key to More Muscle



Don’t let your workout become routine: For the fastest results, change the number of reps you perform every time you hit the gym. In a Brazilian study, people who alternated upper-and lower-body training days gained more strength when they rotated among 4, 10, and 15 repetitions each workout. They outperformed those who did the same number of reps every session or even shifted rep counts weekly. That’s because changing the load recruits different muscle fibres, which lets you train your muscles completely, the researchers say. Best of all? The approach works for both beginners and experienced lifters, making it the perfect way for anyone to bust out of a plateau.
