Bodybuilding Periodization Workouts
Periodization Training for Bodybuilders
Periodization workouts shift the training intensity from high to low during a specific time period, or cycle. It minimizes "burnout" and lets your body respond to varying degrees of stress.
Since your goal is to quickly build as much muscle as possible, you should use "miniperiods" of four weeks in length.
During the first three weeks of each cycle, train as intensely as possible. This means you should "go to failure." Keep on doing repetitions (reps) until you are barely able to complete the final rep of each set. Only by pushing your intensity to this level can you trigger the maximum amount of muscle growth.
After these three high-intensity weeks, do a fourth week of lower-intensity exercise. During this week, the focus will be on lighter weights and higher reps, which will allow your body to recover from the stresses of the previous three weeks. Follow your intensity to this level can you trigger the maximum amount of muscle growth.
