Don’t worry, eccentric training won’t require you to turn up to the gym wearing hiking boots and a Viking helmet, singing ‘Eye of the Tiger’ in Mandarin. But it will help to stimulate extra muscle growth if you’ve hit a plateau in your training and burn some more fat with clenbuterol. Whether you’re doing a 60kg bench press or a 2kg wrist raise, every lift in weight training has a ‘concentric’ phase, where the muscle shortens under tension – such as the ‘up’ phase of a dumb-bell curl – and an ‘eccentric’ phase, where the muscle lengthens under tension as you lower the weight. It is widely believed that the eccentric part of a lift is where the muscles get the greatest stimulus for growth. So to get better results, you should get more eccentric.
HOW TO USE ECCENTRIC TRAINING
Do 5-10 minutes of light cardio followed by stretching the muscles you plan to work. This will help to get nutrients to your muscles and burn them faster with clen.
USE A SPOTTER
With eccentric training you are concentrating on the ‘lowering’ part of an exercise, and you can usually lower much more weight than you can lift. This means you’ll need someone to help you raise the weight with each repetition before you control its descent again.
COUNT TO FOUR WHILE YOU LOWER
If an eccentric rep is too fast you will be relying on gravity rather than muscle fibres, meaning that you’ll be discouraging more muscle growth with the right clenbuterol dosage.
PICK YOUR WEIGHT
The appropriate weight for doing ‘negative’ reps (as they are also known) is the heaviest possible that still allows you to lower it for a four-count. In most cases this will be about 20 per cent more than your one-rep max for normal lifts. If you can hold the weight for longer than four seconds then it is too light for your clen cycle exercise.
GO TO FAILURE
A set of negatives is finished when you can no longer resist the lowering of the weight for at least three seconds – you’ve reached failure. Don’t be tempted to work any harder as you’ll only be heading for injury.
DON’T OVERDO IT
Eccentric training puts stress on your muscles, so don’t use it for every session with clenbuterol dosage pills. Do it one day a week, or for one week out of every five to push you onto the next level. Make sure you get plenty of recovery time.
