When you hit the gym, what body building result are you most interested in? Are you strictly interested in overall fitness and conditioning, or are you looking to maximize your physique and develop impressive mass? If you're like me, you want to get ripped and show off that amazing bulk that turns heads. If it's your desire to maximize your workouts and explode your gains, then these proven techniques of muscle body building are for you:
First, set goals and be prepared to meet them. Building impressive muscle doesn't happen over night, in fact you'll probably need to put in hundreds of hours to experience the gains you're looking for. That means you've got to have a plan and stick to it. Getting sidetracked or changing your routine because you don't think you're seeing the growth you expected can set you back. You want to have impressive success in body building? Well, I can tell you right now that won't happen unless you have a plan.
Second, focus on the three primary weight training exercises for solid muscle body building success: the bench press, the squat, and the dead lift. These classic exercises are the shortest, most direct and most efficient route to developing strength, improving condition, and providing those impressive gains you're looking for. They may not be "sexy" or trendy, but every muscle body building routine needs to include these three core exercises.
Third, push each exercise to your limit of fatigue. By this I mean that you should design each of your exercises so that by your third set you can't do another repetition due to fatigue. For example, you might start a three set exercise with a weight that you know will lead to failure by fatigue in your third set. That means you might plan to do fifteen reps in your first two sets, but due to fatigue by your third set you're only able to accomplish twelve reps. That means you've properly designed your three sets to push your limit of fatigue.
Fourth, eat the right amount of food for muscle growth. Generally speaking, you're probably going to struggle to build muscle at a high rate if you're dieting at the same time. If you do intend to lose weight while at the same time muscle body building, make certain that your food intake doesn't diminish to the point that you're not capable of actually building new muscle. Everyone's body is different, so for specifics you should check with your doctor or dietitian. If nothing else, make certain that you keep your protein intake up.
Finally, get plenty of rest. I know you want to be a workout warrior and train hard at muscle body building every waking moment, but you cannot underestimate the need for rest in order for your body to recover and repair. In fact, a serious lack of recovery time will have a negative impact on muscle growth. Train hard, but get the rest you need.
These are the hidden secrets to muscle body building: set goals, focus on the three core exercises, push yourself to your limit of fatigue, and get plenty of rest. Combined, these techniques will help you maximize your success.
