Training Techniques - Cheating Method
Method (Bodybuilding Intensity Training Techniques) is an exception to
the general rule that strict technique is necessary in bodybuilding.
This kind of cheating doesn't involve using sloppy training technique.
It is a method in which you deliberately use other muscles or muscle
groups to work in cooperation with the target muscles. Cheating Method
is not something you should do all the time, but it is very useful for
achieving certain specific bodybuilding goals.
Say you are
doing a heavy Barbell Curl. You curl the weight up five or six times,
and then find you are too tired to continue to do strict reps. At this
point you begin to use your shoulders and back to help in the lift
slightly so that you can do another 4 or 5 reps. But you cheat just
enough so that you can continue the set, and your biceps continue to
work as hard as they can. By cheating, you have forced the biceps to do
more reps than they could have done without the help from the other
muscles, so you have put more stress on them, not less.
Method is used to make the exercise harder, not easier. It is also a way
of doing forced reps without the help of a training partner. But to make
cheat reps work, you have to concentrate on making sure that the extra
effort being applied by the other muscles is just enough and not too
much, so that the target muscles are still being forced to contract to
