Feeeel the pump

That sensation that your muscles have worked their socks off so much their going to explode

 

But I’m going to burst your bubble (not your muscles)

The link between ‘the pump’ and getting stronger, is as factual as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 

And while feeling good after you train is a must…

You also want to yield results from that effort?

 

‘Le pump’ is merely the effect of having a lot of blood flow to your muscles

As the need to supply energy to these work horses is critical and blood flow is the vehicle for this

 

This commonly comes from high rep training, using relatively short rests like you and 99% of the West Midlands is used to…

 

HOWEVER, the fiction begins when you think this ‘pump’ increases the physiological effects which promote strength and hypertrophy….

 

Because fundamentally, its not the driver of this!

 

For years the magazines, ‘gurus’ and Mick your local gym expert have said this increases hormones naturally, which means you get the above results

 

Afraid not Mick…

 

While the responses from this blood flow effect will produce SOME effect on strength gains, it is not the BIG KAHUNA

 

In fact by following the old school short rest, high rep programmes your INHIBITING the big kahuna

 

This being (as I mentioned last week) cell signalling

 

Think for a moment…

Because we associate breathing heavy with getting fitter, right?

Would it make sense for me to begin hyperventaling with a brown paper bag or holding my breathe, and then think this will make me fitter?

 

Of course not

 

Don’t fall for this common place myth with your strength training

Its so common place I’m actually writing an article on it for an international supplement brand this week

(it might upset some of the old school, but I’m about the facts, what gives optimal results)

 

Speak shortly
