Team Beast athlete and Men's Physique Olympia Champ Brandon Hendrickson tells you how to bring up lagging body parts.
Training Tips to Target Those Lagging Muscle Groups
The amazing part of building a physique is the fact that there is ALWAYS something to work on or improve on! In order to bring up those lagging body parts, there are a few things you can do. For example, I start my training sessions with the body part that is lagging the most. When I train shoulders, I always start with rear delts. I do 5-6 sets of light to moderate weight exercises that will ensure proper blood flow to the muscle, then I do heavy compound sets after warming up. For legs, I start out with hamstrings because it’s a smaller muscle group and usually a lagging body part. Again, I do 5-6 sets of warming up the hamstring before I start my working compound sets.
Improved Nutrition Brings Improved Gains
Nutrition is the most important aspect of the physique we have. Today is the effect of what you ate months ago. And months from now will be the effect of what you are eating now. I believe proper nutrition is the most essential part of building a dream physique. You should also consider supplementation like Beast protein powder. You don’t want to replace a meal with Beast protein though. Protein should only be used when you’re trying to reach a goal protein intake (daily protein intake). For example, if you want to reach 300g of protein per day, 250g of it can be from food and the last 50g can be from something like Beast Protein to help you reach your daily intake goal.
Proper Rest and Recovery is Vital for Success
Rest is also very important in muscle growth! A rest day allows your body to repair and strengthen itself in-between workouts and prevent over-training. The fact of the matter is, you have to rest in order to grow! If you are training 6-7 days a week, two rest days are optimal. Even if it seems resting is not doing anything for you, it actually is. Just because you don’t FEEL something happening doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t. Recovery allows the body to adapt to stress, replenish energy stores, and repair the damage done to muscle tissues from intense workouts. So, trust the process and take your rest days!
