How to Get Big With “The Pump” (GET THIS RIGHT!)

Build ripped athletic muscle in every workout here

If you want to get big you’ve got to lift big, we all know that, but is that all there is to it? Not if you want to maximize the amount of muscle you build. If you want to truly build as much muscle as possible you have to respect the pump. In this video, I’ll show you the benefits of establishing a muscle pump when it comes to getting big. I’ll also tell you one very big caveat you can’t mess up if you’re going to try and chase the pump.

First, you have to understand the three mechanisms of getting bigger muscles. You have to create high amounts of muscular tension, overload, and biochemical stress. Lifting weights that you can readily handle, even at high reps, will likely help you develop a pump but never get you close to building bigger muscles.

At the same time, relying simply on strength moves like 3 rep bench presses, hang cleans and snatches will likely leave you without a pump. After watching this video, you’ll see that there are some important cascading events that are triggered by the pump. These can all be anabolic and help you to develop bigger muscles over time.

That said, the important point is that the pump cannot be achieved independent of the other requirements for muscle growth if you want to build big muscles from it. In order to gain the benefits of the pump it has to come at an energy expense consistent with high effort workouts. In addition, supplementation and nutrition can have a profound effect on your ability to generate a muscle pump in the first place. If you are chronically dehydrated you are not going to have as easy a time getting a pump as if you were drinking water regularly and had high intercellular water content.

Regardless of your reasons for seeking the pump, be it in search of big muscles or simply as a motivational tool for getting the most out of your workout, you have to be sure you do it right. Pair your desire to train for it with an intense training program designed around high tension and overload.
