The Ultimate Hardgainer Workout

The Ultimate Hardgainer Workout | personal fitness training | Scoop.it

The HealthHabits HardGainer Program  THE RULES

 

1. Focus on individual muscles or small groups & not movements – think pecs instead of bench press

2. Keep the number of muscles worked per workout to a minimum – no full-body workouts

3. Maximize the volume of work applied to those muscles

4. Limit rest periods during the workout

5. Make good use of post-workout recovery techniques to help aid recovery and avoid crippling DOMS

6. In between these workouts, don’t do anything more challenging than a brisk walk.
