Strength Training Repetition Method

The repetition method, otherwise recognised as the bodybuilding method, is the top method for the development of muscular hypertrophy. It is the technique where in all accessory and supplemental exercises are trained and is defined as lifting a sub-maximal load to muscular failure. It is well-documented that maximal force is produced by the muscles in a physically drained state (due to the recruitment of the most powerful motor units). This structure of training has a great influence on the advance of muscle mass. A great advantage of the repetition method is that there is an increase not only in strength (as a larger cross-sectional area of the muscle corresponds to an increase in strength) but also in endurance. This method is normally used for all exercises that complement the main compound movements, i.e., the deadlift, the squat, and the bench press.
