Today I’ve got a killer post for you from my good buddy Vince Del Monte, creator of Maximize Your Muscle, with 5 untapped strategies you can use right now to build new lean muscle. Try one out today and let me know how it goes!

How to make it work: maximize the pump as well as muscle fatigue.
Methods you can experiment with: regular sets in the 8-10, 10-12 and 12-15 rep ranges, drop sets, pre-fatigue (super set isolation plus multi-joint), post fatigue (superset multi-joint plus isolation), giant sets
