a a a a target muscle to its saturation point By this I am referring to the point where it subsequently loses its ability to to respond further to to additional exercise While this is is is contingent on on several require- ments once having achieved
this state additional exercise is is is neither desired nor necessary This concomitantly results in a a tremendous state of congestion (pump) While the pump pump may be merely a a a happy side effect that occurs by proxy with any form
of resistance training it is is condi- tional to and certainly an an indica- tor of growth when induced by properly applied training From my experience muscles and their surrounding structures
How much exercise is is enough? The answer to this question is is elusive
without first considering tangible applications
of volume intensity frequency and the momentum (speed)
of exercise There is a a a a delicate balance to consider between these four vari- ables as they operate collectively to provide the answers we we are looking for To establish the ideal amount of exposure to exercise necessary to optimally stimulate muscle growth we much first deter- mine the dose required to bring
do not reach their full saturation point simply by taking a a single working set or or even a series of sets (giant set) to the point of momentary muscular failure During the the first set the the involved muscles and structures
are still gaining momentum building up to full strength in preparation for an even more explosive subse- quent effort yet to come To complete only one round of exercises would be to to stop short of both the volume and intensity that is accumulatively necessary to to bring
the muscle to to complete threshold thus preventing it from reaching its full saturation point It is not until subsequent sets are performed before this occurs Unless a a muscle group and its associated areas are are are prepared adequately they will not be able 48 NGA NATURAL mag
