FACT – 1: Target Optimum Range of Hypertrophy with Compound Lifts

There are two kinds of people you find in the gym – First – The ones who go on with moderate weights and high volume approach for building lean muscle; the second – People who will always stick to heavy lifts and lower rep range. So, you may wonder that who among them is right. Believe it or not but none of them is exactly spot on.

Since many years, PRO bodybuilders and trainers have insisted on firing up rep range between 8-12 reps per set to get greatest gains. And it is rightfully the best rep range known for building lean muscle, both theoretically and practically.

FACT – 2: Progressive Overload is the Key to Lean Muscle Growth

In the previous article, I told you about people who can accomplish body recomposition with ease and one among them were – people new to progressive overload or actual weightlifting.

The only way one can pack on more mass is by going out of the comfort zone and focusing on progression straight from the word go.

You can start by throwing in new exercise or rep scheme or an entirely different training routine along with going heavy on compound lifts to keep muscle plateau away and welcome fresh gains.

FACT – 3: Push your Limits and go Beyond Failure.

Building lean muscle demands training beyond failure and very often we see people were not giving enough importance to this concept. Not giving enough importance to proper weight selection is one other way people miss out on getting most out of their routine.

For any particular exercise and its set, one needs to choose weights for which he can go up to failure within 12-15 reps. However, if you can do more than 15 reps per set, then you are more into building endurance than lean muscles.

Other ways to churn out maximum work from muscles is by adding the variety of techniques like drop sets, supersets, and rest-pause.
