The Muscle Shockers: Force Your Shoulders and Traps to Grow in 7 Sets

Fascial Stretch Training, or FST7, for short.

For those of you wondering what that is, it's rather simple. Beneath your skin, and around your muscles is a fascial layer which is basically like seran wrap (some people say it looks like spider webs) and when it gets too tight, it can cause all sorts of muscle and joint issues and lead to injury. Philly-based personal trainer and the athlete demonstrating this workout, Joe Pepe explains, "This method stretches the fascial layer to maximum capicity with 7 sets on the final exercises in a workout to allow for greater muscular growth."

FST7 is the perfect solution for stubborn muscles.
