Why This Will Build Muscle

Today’s workout was a recovery workout. Essentially, it was created to grease the groove, and possibly aid in recovery. Because I’m a hardgainer and an intermediate lifter, my recovery ability can’t handle 3 stressful workouts in 1 week. My previous workout hopefully created a stress response large enough to create supercompensation before my “PR” workout of the week, which is my next one.

I’ve spoken a lot about supercompensation, and assumed everyone knew exactly what I was talking about. For those of you who may need a brief refresher course on it, just take a look at the picture below:

The Results

Once again, it was a great quick workout. I came into the session tight and a little sore, and left refreshed. I definitely feel some PR’s for my next workout to maximize my efforts along my journey to build muscle fast.
