One of the most well-known training methods in bodybuilding is the so-called volume training, which is still used by many professional bodybuilders today. The aim of the volume of training is to irritate the muscle to the utmost now and this optimally stimulate it.
This increased muscle growth is to come by, as compared to other training methods, significantly increased rate number about. This is up to 30 sets per muscle group to be trained, with the intensity to avoid injury and overtraining, is reduced to 70-80%.
The increased number of sets leads to an increased "muscle pump", which means nothing else than the more blood during exercise passes into the muscle. This has the distinct advantage that the nutrients necessarily need the muscle for growth, faster and better muscle is made available. In addition to the corresponding protein-rich diet (recommended minimun 2.5 g / kg protein and 4.5 g / kg of carbohydrates a day, divided into 5-7 meals) we recommend a good Preworkout to the pump to increase even further.
Due to the high volume of training should, as almost always, be taken to ensure adequate regeneration.
