What Stimulates Muscle Growth – Reps, Volume and Rest?

I think the thing that annoys me most about the people out there that are first jumping into bodybuilding or just putting on muscle in general is the fact that they all seem to assume the only way to stimulate muscle growth is through “lifting big”. You can put on muscle lifting big, but there are many different ways of doing it and it seems like such a waste to stick with one when you could apply many and get better results. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t bench press that much because I’ve seen people half my size do far more, but the fact is that I have more muscle mass on myself. It’s due to the fact that I take advantage of everything I can.

I think there are a lot of people out there that know what to do to successfully be a good bodybuilder, yet it never seems to happen for them. I think knowing the knowledge of this sport is extremely important, but it only makes up around 50% of the process. The other 50% is applying it and that can often be the difficult part. It sort of surprises me when I see that people don’t have the skills to make a long-term process like bodybuilding work. I’m not sure what they face in their daily life, but there is bound to be something that you had to do that required long-term consistent behavior. Anyway, I have some very important tips that can help you increase your chances of bodybuilding success.

My Favorite Exercises For Muscle Gains

A lot of people ask me what exercises I do. They see that I’m a pretty big guy and they hit the gym just as often as I do, so why am I significantly bigger than them? Well, there are a lot of things I do right. I’ve been doing this for quite sometime and when you invest in this process over the years you end up learning a lot about how your body works. If you really don’t understand your body, than you can’t properly push it to the limits. That’s something that comes with time, so no one should hold that against himself or herself.

It’s important to note that all my results come from my ability to control my diet. It doesn’t matter what I do in the gym, my diet always determines the outcome. A change in my diet turns me from a fat burning machine to a muscle-growing beast. Just thought I’d point that out, but I thought it would still be useful here to go through some of the exercises that I consider pretty much my big guns in terms of muscle gain.

The Diet for Building Muscle

What I find quite sad is newbies that come into the gym after the New Year and with their resolution to put on some mass, only to see them disappear after a month. If you watch television’s infomercials for any product that is about muscle growth, you always see someone pumping their muscles up in exercise. If you watch big guys on television, you always see them in the gym. The working out aspect of the process has been so glamorized that most people forget the fact that the diet is far more important. Anyone that you see with huge muscles probably spent more time planning what they eat than what they plan on doing in the gym. I’m going to show you exactly what makes up a good diet for building muscle.
