Muscle Building Tips Part 3: Training

Part 3 Muscle Building Tips: Training

Ok so in the first two parts of this miniseries we covered nutrition and recovery tips to help you gain muscle! Now in part three we are going to cover the top 3 muscle building training tips. Once you put all three into action (nutrition-recovery- training) you will have the necessary tools required to look Huge!!!

Tip #1 – Heavy compound movements
– This may seem like common sense but in order to gain muscle you need to lift heavy weights. I see way too many people in the gym looking to gain muscle but their workout consists of 75 percent machines. If muscle building is your goal (which it should be for most everyone who wants to look and feel better) then focus on heavy free weight compound movements. Machines have their place but your workouts should not be built around them.

Tip # 2 – Progression
– In weight training there is three main ways to make progress in your training, lift more weight, do more reps, or take less rest in between sets. Each workout you want to progress in one of these three ways. A key point to remember is you want to stay in your hypertrophy rep range for the most part so make sure the weight you’re using allows you to achieve muscle failure between 8-12 reps. Go to muscle failure! That is why choosing the correct weight is so important. You are missing out if you stop at 10 just because that was your target for that set. Pick a weight that forces you to stop at 10; you will see much better results if you do.

Tip # 3 – Use proper Form
– This is a big one. If people make one mistake with their training it normally has to do with form. There is a reason exercises are meant to be done a certain way. Make sure you are doing the exercise properly and in a controlled manor. If you are working back but you have an awesome pump in your biceps there is a problem. Get the form down before you start adding weight.
