How a small change in your rep scheme could boost your muscle gains

Dear Friend,

if you are working out like most people, you are using a rep scheme of 6-12 repetitions for muscle mass.
You could read it anywhere and this seems to be one of the iron rules in bodybuilding.

But following this rule could hold you back from serious gains!

Almost nobody can tell you why you should perform this rep scheme for muscle mass.

Some people will tell you that 6 reps is 80% of your one rep maximum - the range where most muscle fibers
get involved. But can you really perform 6 reps with 80% of your one rep max?

I can't tell you  but what I can tell you is that you are probably wasting a lot of your gains by
blindly following this rule.

Don't get me wrong I believed that performing 6-12 reps is an iron rule for achieving maximum
muscle gains. This all changed when I started to test the one rep maximum on all my training clients.

What came out is that a few of my clients could do more than 20 reps with 80% of their one rep maximum,
while others could only do 3 reps with 80% of their one rep maximum. After using the individual scheme of 
between 3 and more than 20 reps for muscle gains, almost all of my clients made better gains. Some even 
doubled their progress rate instantly after changing the rep scheme for muscle gains.

So please test your one rep maximum and load 80% on your one rep maximum on the bar and test how
many reps you could do.

To get a little bit more advanced I would advise you to take the time while performing your reps.

But there is also another trick hidden in it. By this you could know if Creatine is useful for you. But now I want to
leave the theoretical part behind and start with an practical example.

Test your one rep maximum on two different body parts.

At first test your one rep maximum for barbell bicep curls and write it down. If you didn't choose the right weight
at the first time (almost nobody could do this) take 3 minutes off - before you try it a second or third time.
(for example your TESTED one rep maximum for barbell curls is 100lbs)

At second test your one rep maximum for leg extensions.
(for example your TESTED one rep maximum for barbell curls is 200lbs)

After you did do this - pause for 10 minutes.

In this time calculate 80% of your one rep maximum for barbell curls (100 * 0,8 = 80 lbs) and the leg extensions
(200 * 0,8 = 160)

Now you know your real one rep maximum for both exercises.

After the 10 minutes pause you should load 80lbs on the barbell for testing your repetitions.

For example you are able to perform 9 repetitions for barbell curls with 80 lbs. So 9 repetitions is your optimum
rep scheme for barbell curls.

After another 10 minutes of pause you could make the same test with the leg extensions.

For example you could do 15 leg extensions with 160 lbs. So this means you should always aim for 15 repetitions
for leg extensions because this gives you the best muscle gains.

Did you take your time for the reps?

If so I can tell you the following:

If your time for each of both exercises was below 60 seconds Creatine could be quite useful for you.

If your time was even below 40 seconds for each of both exercises and you didn't try Creatine - what are you waiting for?

It will definitely give you a good boost in muscle mass. One final advice I would like to give you. You should do this test
for any exercise you are performing. Probably you have seen, that you get different results for different body parts. But
you will also get different results for different exercises for the same body part.

This is because every exercise involves slightly different muscle fibers. So probably your optimum rep scheme for barbell
curls is 9 reps, but for preacher bench curls it could be 6 reps.

Probably this technique alone could give you "only" 20% more muscle gains but it could also double your progress rate.

This sums up over time to big gains. And if you add some more of these tricks in your training schedule you could double or even triple your progress rate instantly.
