Principle - The Flushing Method
Bodybuilding Power Training Principle -
The Flushing Method involves holding a (relatively light) weight steady
at various points along the path of the exercise, forcing the muscle to
maintain a constant contraction for extended periods.
For example, after we have done as many
Dumbbell Laterals as possible we hold our arms locked out by our sides
and then lift them about 5 inches away from our thighs, feeling the
deltoids tense and flex. We hold this position for about 10 seconds as
the burn accompanying the buildup of lactic acid gets stronger and
stronger. This tension applied at the end of an Flushing Method exercise
causes an enormous increase in muscle separation, and can be done for
many muscles in the body: for lats, hanging from the chinning bar and
lifting the body only a few inches; doing Cable Crossovers, holding your
hands crossed with chest fully contracted, flushing blood into the
pectorals; holding a Curl steady, at various angles of the total arc; or
locking your legs out in a Leg Extension and holding as long as you can.
