The shrink wrap effect is an advanced technique that I first read about in Visual Impact Muscle Building. It allows you to maximize muscle tone!
Checkout the results I got from utilizing this little known trick in the video below:
As you can see my skin is literally shrink wrapped around my muscles. This makes for a very impressive look. So what is the shrink wrap effect? The problem is that when most people diet down they end up dropping fat faster than their skin can keep up. So when they finally hit their goal weight they never look as good as they hoped. This is because their skin lags behind and this will blur definition.
In order to look really sharp you need to maintain your body size for a period of at-least a few weeks and possibly more depending on how much weight you lost. After your skin has tightened up and adapted to your smaller body size you will look much better. However this alone will not accomplish the shrink wrap effect. The next step is to switch to a high volume, pump style workout routine to quickly maximize the size of your glycogen stores in your muscles over a period of a few weeks. The result will be incredible.
Sample Pump Up Chest/Delts/Tri’s Workout
Incline Bench Press: 4 x 8-12 reps (60 seconds rest between sets)
Flat Barbell Bench: 4 x 8-12 reps (60 seconds between sets)
Machine Flye’s: 4 x 8-12 reps (30 seconds between sets)
Machine or Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 4 x 10-15 reps (60 seconds rest between sets)
Lateral Raises: 4 x 12-15 reps (30 seconds rest between sets)
Skull Crushers: 4 x 10-12 reps (60 seconds rest between sets)
Cable Rope Extension: 4 x 12-15 reps (30 seconds rest between sets)
You will notice that this workout will cause a lot of fatigue and you will have to go pretty light. This fatigue is crucial for fully depleting your muscles glycogen stores. Your body super-compensates to high volume workouts by storing more glycogen in your muscles. This will cause your muscles to fill out rather quickly and give your muscles that shrink wrap effect. High volume workouts are very effective for a short period of time. 3-6 weeks at a time. Unfortunately very little real muscle growth occurs from high rep, pump up training. Therefore you should spend most of your time lifting heavy and utilize high rep training for a few weeks when you want to shrink wrap your skin around your muscles.
