What is X-Rep training?
Q. I have been hearing about X-Reps, this is something new that Steve Holman and Jonathan Lawson invented and claim gives amazing results. But what is it and how do you do an X-Reps workout?
A. This technique is not really new it has been around for a long
time, it goes by many names such as partials, burns, modified
But it is a great overload technique. The burn you will feel
in the muscle will hook you into this method very quickly. When
you have completed your full regular reps, continue to move the
weight through part of the range of motion. That can be a half
rep, a quarter rep or even just a couple of inches. Just keep
moving the weight. When you performed your regular reps, you
stimulated your muscle fibers 70%-80%. As you continue to push,
even in small increments, the muscle fibers keep firing and
additional fibers are recruited to assist in the effort. This
is exactly what you want to do - overload the muscle and force
it to grow. This technique is very intense. Use it sparingly,
like any other overload method.
An important point to remember is X-Reps or Modified Reps as
we call them in the Matrix Mass system, is only one technique
you can use. Remember your body adapts to any workout or technique
you use, and then progress stops. You need to keep changing your workouts
and techniques on a regular basis in order to keep progressing.
