Fitness Tip of the Day: Group Muscles for Growth

Focusing on one or two muscle groups per workout can help increase strength and mass

One way to really help increase muscle growth is to exercise one to two specific muscle groups one day at a time. 

For instance, a typical strength training split looks something like this: back/biceps, shoulders/traps, chest/triceps, and legs/abs all on different days and only working those two groups for an entire workout. This will allow you to really concentrate on that specific muscle group, taxing it more and inducing hypertrophy.

This also works with super sets. You can superset the specific groups listed above or you can superset just one of those muscle groups at a time. This method will really allow you to concentrate on muscle growth and strength. More muscle equals more calories burned and a stronger you!
