"The Pump" is more than just your typical "Bro" term that you may hear in the gym. If you have a goal of shaping and/or building muscle onto your frame, the pump is crucial for this to take place.
When training a particular muscle group, whether it is lagging or not, you should utilize a weight range that is fully controllable but enough to put tension or load on those fibers. When lifting, don't just mindlessly move the weight or toss it around without intent. Slow down and focus on controlling both the eccentric and concentric motions of the lift. Truly allowing the muscle at hand to do the work and not tap into other unnecessary muscles. The most optimal training style for pump and shaping the muscle will be found during Hypertrophy training. Make sure to watch the video above to see how you can optimize daily habits and enhance your pumps in the gym!
