Discover 5 advanced techniques to maximize your muscle pump and promote faster muscle gains! The nuts and bolts of what you need to know. By restricting a working muscle from obtaining the oxygen it needs, a surplus of blood is sent to the muscle as the body panics, and when the working muscle is disengaged, all of this extra blood surges into the muscle creating the pump.
My favorite methods to create a pump are partial repetitions, reduced rest intervals, extended set methods, slow lifting/lowering tempos, and contrasting isometrics/flexing with dynamic loaded movements.
