Today I performed 40 sets of grueling arm work. And I do mean grueling. This was truly hard training. It was a workout session during which I encountered an old truth: light is heavy. What I mean by this is that I relied, throughout the whole workout session, on light weights ("light" in this context meaning weights that allowed me to perform at least 12 reps per set) - and that this kind of training can be really taxing if one make sure to push oneself. It went as follows:
The result of this high volume session? An arm pump that I rate as absolute top of the notch. Both biceps and triceps felt really pumped already after a few sets. In fact, I wouldn’t hesitate to call my arm pump the last couple of arm sessions to be among the best I have ever achieved during 20 years of gym training. In future articles will elaborate on how to achieve this kind of pump.
