Tip No. 6 - Rest Pause Training
One of the keys to building strength
and muscle mass is to use more
weight in your exercises.
For beginners, that means you train
progressively and add weight to the
bar on a regular basis.
For intermediate and advanced
trainees, adding weight to the bar
becomes more difficult to do.
And that's where Rest Pause
Training comes into play.
Rest Pause Training was developed
in the 1950's and featured in Peary
Rader's IronMan magazine.
Interestingly, it received almost no
coverage in other magazines - so if
you didn't subscribe to IronMan, you
pretty much missed the boat on this.
The idea was simple.
Instead of doing a set of non-stop,
consecutive reps, you did just one
rep and then paused for 10 to 15
seconds - and then you did the next
rep - and so on, until you completed
the entire set.
Some viewed each set as a series of
singles - which is actually what it was.
By pausing between reps, you were
able to handle more weight in the
basic exercises - which was a very
good thing for building strength and
In addition, you eliminated the effect
of momentum when you paused be-
tween reps. That meant that you had
to start each rep from a dead stop -
using muscle power alone.
You also eliminated the whole "muscle
pump" thing - which meant you were
doing pure strength training - and yet,
to the surprise of many, you could build
plenty of muscle mass on the Rest
And that's interesting, because everyone
*knows* you need to pump up your muscles
in order to make them bigger - or do you?
The guys who did Rest Pause Training
made big gains in muscle mass without
doing any pumping at all.
And they also built plenty of strength.
It was a great way to train - and it
