One of the biggest difficulties facing bodybuilders is how can they be sure that all muscle fibers have been recruited and exhausted during a given exercise and it is only by achieving this that muscle gains can be maximized.

Few techniques that will help to increase your muscle growth:

Increase resistance
Increasing the weight lifted in meaningful increments ensures the muscle is pushed beyond its previous point of failure thus maintaining the muscle building process. Aim to increase the weight when you reach six to eight reps and failure does not occur.

Change the exercise
To achieve maximal gains, all muscle fibers in a body part must be trained. Introducing a new exercise will stimulate growth.

Reduce rest intervals
Giving the muscles less time to recover before exposing them to further work has the effect of increasing intensity.

Introduce supersets
This involves performing two exercises for the same muscle group without a rest interval. This means you have to utilize different muscle fi…
