I am always intrigued to try different workout and exercise programs to continually shock my body into growth or fat burn. High-reps have been something that I have wanted to master as your muscles increase its endurance. Anytime I feel a body part is getting stagnant, I'll do a set of 100 and that’ll be my whole workout for the body part that day.

I’ll start with a weight that I can get 25-30 reps and then strip the weight as the set progresses.

The pump is amazing and painful in a good way of course.

Regular use of the hundreds can increase muscle development, separation and definition. It will also help you to grow bigger and stronger, when you return to a standard heavier weight-lower rep program.

If you decide you want to give this difficult yet rewarding program, here is how it is done. You want to complete 100 reps per set, but you should reach muscular failure before the mark is reached.

The goal is to perform at least 70 reps before stopping for a breather. If you can complete 100 reps without stopping, then the weight is too light and you’ll need to increase it next workout. When you are at failure, try resting for the number of seconds that corresponds to the number of reps you have left.

Once you can perform more than 70 reps without hitting failure, then slightly increase the weight (2 ½ pounds for smaller groups and 5 pounds for larger.

Albert Einstein defined as insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

So with that in mind, give this crazy workout a try.
