1. Stretch – This is one of the best way to enhance blood flow to the working muscles. The best way to stretch is to hold the target muscle in a stretched position for 15 seconds.
  2. Negative Reps – Negative reps done in a controlled safe fashion, are essential for muscle growth.
  3. Rest – It’s important to make sure you let your muscles recover. This includes a good nights sleep. Our bodies recovery while we sleep, so it’s extremely important!
  4. Train to failure – To have a perfect set,  you must always end with complete exhaustion of the muscle. This means, the last rep which is the most important one, should be almost impossible to complete with perfect form.
  5. Focus – Knowing what you want to accomplish and committing yourself to it, is the first step.  Try focusing on making your objectives reality.
