Every individual weight exercises range of movement has a particular point in the contraction that produces the most amount of tension and stimulus on the working muscle. In this program with the addition of bands added to the movements, we can manipulate the exercise's natural resistance curve to increase the tension evenly across the entire contraction range - ultimately making every rep you do produce more growth stimulus.
Throughout this program particular weight exercises we'll use strength bands to specifically enhance the peak contraction point of the exercise's repetition. This places the muscle under a heightened stress when its at it's shortest contracted point, forcing you to control the start of the eccentric movement under a extreme forced eccentric stress. This has your target muscle undergoing more stress and ultimately producing more growth potential.
One of the key mechanisms to muscle growth is when it undergoes Metabolic Stress - when the accumulation of blood, lactic, metabolic by-product accumulates in the target muscle during training, this in itself triggers anabolic responses to occur. This program takes full advantage of this powerful hypertrophy mechanism.
After coming 2nd or 3rd at nationals every year, I knew if I was going to finally win I needed to do something that other competitors weren’t doing.… TA2 SIZE ON was the approach. Incorporating resistance bands into my weight training to generate and maximize growth in all the right areas. The end result? Well let me just tell you there is no better feeling than nailing a goal you’ve had for over a decade.
