Make a Lagging Muscle Grow: Try This

If you have a weak spot (shoulders, calves, hamstrings, etc) that you want to bring up, this news is huge.

 

Does the order of the lifts in your workout matter?

Hell yes, according to sports scientists at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro.

The scientists designed a training study with Brazilian military recruits to see if the order muscles are trained in effects their growth rates. The results were overwhelming.

  • The muscle group trained first grows at a significantly faster rate than the muscles trained after it
  • The muscle group trained first made the greatest strength gains 

All the muscle groups trained made progress in size and strength, but the rate of change was noticeably higher in muscles targeted by the first lifts.

 

The Takeaway: 

Muscle groups you want to emphasize should be trained first in your workouts.
