Why isn’t bike riding for massive quad pump more talked about or known?
I’m not talking about cycling on a machine at the gym
I’m talking about literally going to Walmart buying a mountain bike and biking as far from your house and back again as you can in an hour.
Not measuring HR or speed or anything but keeping the gear ratio set for a very high perceived level of exertion. I’d argue if done right it counts as HIIT cardio.
Take a scoop of stim free pump pre-workout and/or beet supplement for nitrates. Maybe a coffee with that.
Dude the pump i get absolutely obliterates anything I can get in the gym even doing g 5/3/1 boring but big with your 5 sets of 10 at the end.
Probably because time under tension is king and bike riding is constant tension?
I just don’t understand why you never hear people go yeah I threw this end for hypertrophy this week. Ive known like 2 guys with massive quads who knew about cycling for that pump.
The idea isn’t to replace squats or deadlifts. You do it once or twice a week in the same week to force blood into them and blow them up. If anything just help them grow faster and recovery quicker.
If your paranoid about cortisol or your natrual and don’t want to burn your muscle just drink syrup with a scoop of protein powder before hand (joking on the syrup)
I might be asking for some flame right now because I’m def too excited about posting this. I really just don’t understand why more people don’t regularly incorporate this. Very curious to hear everyone’s thoughts on incorporating bike riding for quad/leg hypertrophy.
Posted here because atleast with the way I do this. It hits my system like HIIT and a strength leg workout. Im positive if not overdone can greatly contribute to a bigger stronger leaner goal.
