QUESTION

I have actually been told that I shouldn’t pre-exhaust to construct dimension. However you use this technique. Why do you think pre-exhaust is effective?

ANSWER

The training approach that is successful is going to be different for every body builder. For me, it’s not all about rising the most weight– it’s about what pushes my muscular tissues harder. Using pre-exhaust makes the rest of the exercise harder.

Pre-exhaust contains taking a single-joint seclusion motion to failure prior to moving on to a heavier compound movement. Examples would be doing side elevates prior to shoulder presses or doing leg expansions before squats—like Arnold Schwarzenegger carried out in Pumping Iron. Fatiguing the muscular tissue this way leads to better fiber employment, which causes development.
