15.   Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes.
16.   With a small serrated knife, slice into ½ inch biscotti.
17.   Lay cut side down on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, then turn and bake for another 10-15 minutes (they should feel crispy when tapped but be careful not to burn).

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.
