Do You Need To "Shock" Your Muscles?

by Allen Pham on September 28, 2020

Does Shocking your muscles really work?

Sometimes I feel people can misconstrue the intensity of training programme as a tactic to "shock" muscle into growth. The reality is, you don't "shock" a muscle into growing, your programming should always create the opportunity for new forms of hypertrophy to take place, within different thresholds.

Do You Need To Shock Your Muscles?

For instance, if your programming has a:

  • Multitude of repetition ranges you cycle through week to week
     
  • Fluid rep ranges which don't always remain the same
     
  • Periodisation which allows for progressive overload to take place (within all rep ranges)

You have increased your potential of building muscle, exponentially!

Implying you "shock" a muscle into growth just means you're trying something new, but the reality is, your programming should present a plethora of training variables, in an organised structure so that you are effectively "shocking" the muscle with new stimulus.

But, just understand this is actually a planned process. 

Doing things just for the sake of "shock" is not going to build muscle optimally, over the long-term. 

As soon as you buy into the fact you must use structure, with progression built-in, along with the broad range of training variables, the positive changes you see in your physique will be:

1) Far more consistent 

2) Far more predictable 

3) Far less frustrating!
