# 10 Burnout Sets
Burnout sets are a great finisher to a workout. That’s why they’re at the end of this list. The idea behind burnouts is to completely and utterly fatigue and destroy the muscle group you’re working out. You’ll want to perform the exercise of your choice until complete exhaustion. Burnout sets can typically range anywhere from 15 to 100 reps and are supposed to leave you close to collapsing. Don’t fear though, you won’t be doing all of those reps more than once because a burnout set is meant to destroy your muscles as a last hurrah portion of your workout. They’re done for you to use up whatever energy you have left in the tank so that you can really break down your muscles in a way you’ve never felt before. You’re going to want to keep the weight consistent throughout. Don’t stop and rest. And, resist the urge to add or remove weight. You’ll want to start with a mid to light weight so that you can make it through all of the reps without stopping. Burnouts are a great finisher to a hard workout geared at growing your muscles.
With so many people telling you what you need to do in the gym to build muscle fast, it can be nearly impossible to know what works and what doesn’t. If you follow the routines listed in this article, you’ll be well on your way to results. Don’t be phased if you aren’t Mr. Olympia in a couple weeks though. Give these approaches time and you’ll definitely build your dream body. By Mark Rubino
