When it comes to building muscle there are many things you must know and do, one thing you should do is go back to the basics. With that in mind I am giving you five of the most basic muscle building tips that will explode your muscle growth.
#1 - The best mass building exercises are always multi joint, free weight, compound exercises that use as much muscle mass as possible and allow you to use heavy weights. This includes movements like squats, dead lifts, chin ups, dips, overhead presses and rows. Do not waste your time using machine or isolation exercises when trying to build muscle mass.
#2 - Heavy weights with adequate rest periods between sets should be the main focus of your workout. You need to rest long enough to perform high quality sets with heavy weights. That is usually somewhere between one to three minutes depending on the exercise and the weight being used.
#3 – Always train both sides of the joint with equal volume. Therefore if you do ten sets per week of pressing exercises you need to do ten sets per week of pulling exercises. If you do two sets of curls you should do two sets of triceps work. And so on and so on...
#4 - Training Too Often - Only train with weights 3-4 days per week. In order for your muscle to grow you must train hard and heavy and then back off and allow your muscles time to rest and recover. Without ample rest time you will never grow to your maximal potential.
#5 - Training Strictly for the Pump - high volume training leads to a great pump but a great pump does not always lead to muscle growth.
Apply these 5 tips and you will reach your muscle building goals much faster.
