Adding a Little Twist


BodybuildingPro.com Training Database Bodybuilding Articles Adding a Little Twist



A Way to Improve Your Rep.

Add a little twist to your bodybuilding saga.

The twist we’re talking about does not require any dramatic turn of events. It does not require any fancy new devices or groundbreaking techniques that will provide a pulse-pounding climax to your everyday workout plot. And it certainly has nothing to do with any dance moves from the‘50’s.

Rather, the twist we speak of is the one that comes at the contraction point of many different exercises. Of course, these exercises are dumbbell exercises only; barbell or machine exercises do not permit you to twist.

The twist that comes during the contraction of say, dumbbell bench presses, is an ideal way to invigorate the pectoral muscles, forcing them to contract with more power, thus providing for muscle growth.

Try this exercise with this twist to see what we mean:

DUMBBELL BENCH PRESSES: As you lie on a bench, take a dumbbell in each hand. The weights should be parallel with each other, palms facing outward, as your elbows are locked in 90-degree angles to your sides. Slowly press the dumbbells upward and as you approach the point of contraction, twist them slightly in, so that your knuckles are facing each other. When your arms are fully extended, squeeze the pectoral muscles during the contraction for a moment. As you slowly begin to lower the weights to the starting position, twist your arms once again so that your palms are facing outward.
