The Built Report Principles
There are many disparate training principles floating around in the bodybuildingsphere. Built Report has undergone a detailed compilation of these principles.
The Built Report Superset Principle- With this Built Report Principle you will be training opposing muscle groups immediately after each other. You will be doing alternating sets of biceps and triceps by, for example, doing a set curls followed immediately by a set of triceps extensions. Your triceps are being stretched and recovering for the next triceps exercise as you train biceps, and vice-versa.
The Built Report Muscle Priority Principle – This Built Report Training Principle involves working your weaker less-developed muscles first when you have more energy so that they get the attention and the energy needed for them to catch up proportionately to the other muscle groups.
The Built Report Pre-Exhaustion Principle – This Built Report Principle concerns prefatiguing a larger muscle with a single-joint movement like lateral raises for shoulders followed by a compound-joint movement like military presses. It’s kind of like The Built Report Superset Principle except that you are following an initial exercise with another exercise for the same body part but one that brings other muscles into play as well. You’re going from the specific to the general. For example, when you fatigue your quadriceps with leg extensions you follow up with squats so that other supporting muscles come into play and allow you to keep hitting the quads.
The Built Report Pyramiding Principle – This Built Report Principle relates to multiple sets of an exercise starting off with a lighter weight and doing more reps, gradually increasing your weight as you decrease your reps. This Built Report principle allows you to gradually warm up your muscles as you increase the weight.
The Built Report Tri-Sets Principle – This Built Report Principle allows for three sets in a row for the same body-part with as little rest as possible in between sets. You may tri-set your chest muscles by doing dumbbell flyes followed by dips followed by bench press. It’s basically like The Built Report Superset Principle except you’re adding an extra set and doing all three sets for the same muscle group, like biceps.
The Built Report Set System Principle – Unlike HIT(high intensity training) where usually only one very intense set is performed in order to fatigue a muscle group, the Built Report Set System Principle simply incorporates multiple sets per body part.
The Built Report Compound Sets Principle – You are alternating two exercises for the same muscle group, one set of one exercise immediately followed by one set of another exercise for the same body part. For example standing barbell curls followed by preachers bench curls.
The Built Report Giant Sets Principle- Here you do 4 or more exercises for the same body-part immediately after each other. It is similar to The Built Report Tri-Sets Principle except that you are doing at least 4 same body part exercises back to back.
The Built Report Instinctive Principle – This Built Report Principle allows you to experiment with your training to find out what works for you. This allows you to use your intuition as to how you approach your training.
The Built Report Staggered Sets Principle With this Built Report Principle you “sneak” in sets of weaker muscle groups throughout your entire workout. For example, if you have weak calves you do sets of calves every now and then throughout your chest and back workout, for example, so by the end of your workout you will have done multiple sets of calves and kept them pumped throughout the entire workout.
These are only ten of the many Built Report principles but enough to get you started on a Built Report body. These principles are in no way to be confused with…what people are bringing to our attention are…the “Weider” principles.
