How do I progress with Myo-reps?

How To Progress Your Workouts

  1. Add more total reps — More specifically the total number of reps achieved over the course of the protocol (activation set + mini-sets)
  2. Add more sets — Perform 1 activation set and add more mini-sets.
  3. Increase the weight.

How effective are Myo-reps?

Myo-Reps are therefore highly effective at increasing the muscle growth gains (hypertrophy) that athletes seek without spending nearly as much time and energy as compared to traditional straight sets.

What does Myo mean gym?

Muscular hypertrophy focused training can take ample time, especially as we scale training volume higher. Myo-Reps are a useful tool for pushing this adaptation further while in time-limited situations.

What is a Myorep?

What are Myo-Reps? Myo-reps involve first performing an “activation” set, where a relatively lower load is lifted to near-failure, typically in the 12-30 repetition range. Then, a series of lower-rep “back-off” sets are completed with the same weight, e.g., 3-5 reps.

What is a drop set example?

A drop set is an advanced training technique specifically designed for muscle hypertrophy, which basically means making your muscles grow bigger through this program. Drop set example, say your first set is 6 reps at 10kg, the next would be 8 reps at 8kg, then 10 reps at 6kg and so on.

How do you do rest pause training?

How to rest-pause for strength:

  1. Set a weight 80-90% of your 1-rep max.
  2. Perform 1 rep then rest.
  3. Rest for 15 seconds.
  4. Keep the weight the same.
  5. Repeat this method until you hit 10-12 reps.

What are stimulating reps?

MSupply, a stimulating rep is considered a rep that provides a mechanical stimulus to the fibers of high-threshold motor units with slow contraction velocity.

What is Myo short for?


Acronym Definition
MYO Make Your Own
MYO Multi Year Open

What is exertion level?

The Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) is a way of measuring physical activity intensity level. Perceived exertion is how hard you feel like your body is working.

Is Amrap a cardio?

“Honesty, anything the keeps the lungs burning and heart rate high is a “cardio” workout, so AMRAPS do that because, if you’re constantly moving without stopping, you’ll jack up your heart rate and cause the body to breathe hard,” Carvajal says.

How do you create a cluster set?

Clusters sets look like this: Do three reps, rest 30 seconds, do three reps, rest 30 seconds, do three reps. That entire sequence is one set. The main benefit of cluster sets is that you can lift more weight for the same overall volume.

Which is better superset or drop set?

Drop sets are a little different than supersets, but they still reap the same awesome benefits. But that’s not to say that they are better for actually building muscle with Drop Sets, just easier to do.

How many Myo reps are in an exercise?

Myo-Reps can be performed using a capped number of total Myo-Reps performed for an exercise. For example capping a set at 20 total Myo-Reps would look like this;

What’s the best way to do Myo reps?

To perform Myo-Reps, begin with performing an ‘activation’ set to failure within the 10-12 rep range. Rack the weight and take 4-5 deep breaths over no more than 15 seconds, then begin the first Myo-Rep set of 6-8 reps to failure.

What’s the first set of myo reps called?

The first Myo-Rep set is called the “activation set”. This set will be a higher rep set that is taken close to failure to—ideally—recruit more muscle fibers heading into the preceding sets. You can use a variety of rep goals here, but I often use 16 or 20. Since we’re tackling a higher rep set, we also need to scale our intensity back accordingly.

How many sets of myo should I do?

So, three straight sets such as 3×12-15 with ~2 minutes of rest in between would be the same as 1 Myo rep set no matter how many minisets you manage to get. The amount of Myo sets you should do in your workout would depend on the amount of training volume you need.
