    • 656. THE OVERWORKED BICEPS AND TRICEPS
      Probably the two most overtrained muscle groups in the body are the biceps and the triceps. Chest and shoulder training brings in the triceps while the biceps are heavily involved in most back exercises. If you find that one or both of these muscle groups are not responding, try working them on separate days from the other muscles. Also, you don't want to work biceps the day before or after back, or triceps the day before or after chest.

      657. CHANGE IT UP
      One of the most effective ways to wake up stubborn muscles is by changing your grip, or attachment on the machine. For example, while most people regularly perform wide-grip pulldowns, few experiment with other attachments. You can use the double-D normally used on the seated row. Or you can use a shorter bar with the hand grips facing inwards. You can even use the single handle normally found on the cable crossover machine. The same approach can be used on the seated row. Instead of useing the v-bar attachment, try one of the longer bars and pull it to the mid-chest rather than the lower ribcage.

      658. TRY A DIFFERENT ANGLE
      Sometimes chocking a muscle into new growth can be measured in degrees. Instead of performing your barbell or dumbell presses on a flat bench (180 degrees), try inclining in just 5 or 10 degrees. Likewise, if you normally use a 30-degree angle for inclines, drop it to 20 to 25 or increase it to 35-40. To really spice things up, try changing the angle on every set. Start completely flat and work your way up to 45-degrees in 5-degree increments.

        • 659. THE BIG THREE
          Sometimes the keys to breaking out of a training rut is simplicity. Take a month or two and do nothing but squats, deadlifts, and bench presses. These three basic, compound movements will work the entire body as well as allow you to let your ego run wild. You can either perform all three on the same day for an average of 6 to 8 sets each, or take three days a week and do them separately. Concentrate on using as much weight as possible on each lift. We can almost bet that your training rut will quickly be a thing of the past.



          660. TRY A DIFFERENT GYM!
          Even though it's one of the more expensive options for breaking out of a training rut, the results are worth it. Switching gyms will give you access to new equipment and a new atmosphere. A month's membership at most gyms costs about $50, but it may be the best $50 you ever invested.



          661. HIT THE WOODS!
          Those of you who read Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Education of a Bodybuilder will recall how he and a few of his buddies would load up the car with weights and go into the woods and train. The combination of fresh air and "back to nature" feel can do wonders for muscles that are used to the staleness of a gym environment. Don't have access to woods? Set up a bench in your back yard.



          662. VARY THE REPS
          Another easy way to shock a muscle into new growth is by changing your rep scheme. No doubt you've probably been following one of the classic 6 to 8 or 10 to 12 rep schemes. Try doing high reps (15 to 20) with light weight, or low reps (4 to 6) with heavy weight. Presto! Your sticking point is history.
