Growing (toning) muscle requires the use of enough load to help provide enough intensity to trigger an anabolic response… but what do you do if you’re limited in how much weight you have to lift? The good news is that with certain strategies, you can work around this issue by incorporating some advanced training strategies such as creating a greater mechanical disadvantage, isolation exercises, utilising active insufficiency, increasing metabolic stress, and increasing load in any way possible to help keep light weights as challenging as possible. Doing so can help to keep the gains-train rolling and at least help to mitigate wasting of muscle mass.
