Mid-Rep Pauses: The Two-Second Muscle Builder


We all want gains. Let’s be real, even if you train for fat loss, or performance, you want to look good. You want to look like you lift.

As all experienced lifters know, you’ll eventually run into sticking points – roadblocks, if you will. Muscle building is easy, until it isn’t. Usually this “easy” phase applies to your first few months lifting, or if you’re in your teens or early twenties, with raging hormones.

For the rest of us, you need to get creative to push through these walls, and continue to see your gains. In my latest article, I talk all about how one small tweak can drastically improve hypertrophy. That’s right, one small change you can apply today to see improved hypertrophy and a greater challenge from your workouts.

What is this mid-rep pause, you ask? Well, I break it all down for you, and even give you a sample workout, in the full article at T-Nation.
