The 3/7 method for muscle growth and strength

Muscle growth, metabolic stress and mechanical stress

I’m a sucker for metabolic stress. If after a workout I am not short of breath, do not feel the sweat seeping down my temples, do not acidify from lactic acid combustion or rejoice over the shine of a pump, I get the training equivalent of blue balls.

Just like real blue balls, it’s not dangerous, but I’m a little grumpy until I find a sweet ejaculation. So fill me up with work, please. Let my breath – a mutant cross between a mule and a beaver – shine.

Therefore, it piqued my interest to read about the 3/7 method. It is a set-rep program developed by the French strength trainer Emmanuel Legeard in the early 2000s. It combines relatively heavy weight (mechanical stress) with very short rest periods (metabolic stress).

It has a few things in mind. One, it is among the most time-efficient methods available, and secondly, it has solid research to back up its muscle-building and muscle-strengthening credentials.
