Training with a lot of repetitions has, as a rule, one pronounced effect - the muscles are bursting. Exercises for biceps, triceps and pumping.
Some time after starting bodybuilding, the trainee begins to notice a lag in the development of some muscles relative to others. The main reason is the wrong construction of the training split. As a result, lagging muscles are either underworked due to lack of load, or overworked due to excessive volume.
As for the arms, the training of which this article is devoted, athletes often overtrain them. At the same time, thinking on the contrary, that the hands do not have enough load. Trying to increase it, they fall into a vicious circle. Hands, instead of growing, on the contrary, either completely stop growing, or begin to lose volume. How to determine the reason for the stop. To do this, you need to completely exclude arm training from the training schedule for 4-6 weeks, and then adjust it based on the results obtained.
Pumping - (from the English pumping - pumping) - this is a subjective sensation of fullness and compaction of muscles after exercise, with frequent repeated repetitions of a monotonous movement. Pumping is associated with an increase in muscle volume due to increased blood circulation and tissue edema. The increase in the volume of muscle cells occurs as a result of the massive influx of sugar and other osmotic substances that pull water with them, while the cell membrane becomes more permeable. Training with a large number of repetitions, as a rule, has one pronounced effect - muscle pain, which occurs as a result of the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles, acidification of the intercellular environment and the formation of other metabolic products. Lactic acid is the result of anaerobic glycolysis in muscles, in other words - slag. It is believed that the breakdown products of nutrients, or waste products (including lactic acid), have a growth-stimulating effect on muscles and cause increased testosterone secretion.
