Brazilian researchers have discovered the absolute coolest way to build massive muscles.
In their study, 16 men were subjected to a laboratory workout consisting of 4 sets of bicep curls at 80% of their 1 RM. The men were asked to perform repetitions to voluntary fatigue and the number of reps were recorded.
In between sets, researchers applied wet bags of ice to the biceps of 8 of the men.
The 8 men who received the inter-set cooling protocol were able to complete 21% more reps than the control group.
And if that wasn’t cool enough, blood tests indicated that those extra reps were achieved without inducing any additional muscle damage.

- Bodybuilders spend thousands of dollars on drugs and supplements to achieve a 20% increase in training volume
