Muscle Growth Guide2 Muscle Building Secrets Guaranteed to Add Muscle Mass! Building muscle mass is much easier to do when you are armed with the correct information. With the correct information, you'll build muscle mass faster than you thought possible.
If you're frustrated with your muscle gain or fat loss goals, I sympathize with you completely, and understand exactly what you are going through. I worked out for years before finally figuring out the correct ways to go about building muscles and losing fat.
I finally figured out that the routines and weight lifting tips touted by professional bodybuilders and the muscle magazines just aren't going to work for most people. But take heart, you can start building muscle with effective weight training routines and nutrition programs.
Following are a couple of weight lifting tips that I've found to be extremely effective in building muscle and adding strength as quickly as possible. Putting together a program that incorporates the following weightlifting tips will point you in the right direction and get you making gains you hadn't thought were possible.Building Muscle Tip #1 - An Intense Twist
Arthur Jones, inventor of Nautilus, pioneered the concept of training with 100% intensity, ie, training to failure. And this is an extremely important part of your routine if you are interested in building muscles as quickly as possible.
However, as others caught on toe Arthur's effective training ideas and the training to failure concept became more widespread, an important piece of advice by Arthur was forgotten. Arthur suggested that people go beyond failure.
And I'm not talking about some of the more popular high intensity techniques available today such as rest-pause, forced reps, drop sets, etc. I'm talking about a very specific way of training to failure that is very effective for building muscle mass.
Arthur Jones suggested that once you could no longer complete another repetition, you should continue pushing or pulling on the weight for approximately another 20 seconds. Obviously, on certain exercises like squats or bench presses, you either need to work in a power rack with safety pins or have a very good spotter.
Let's use the bench press as an example of how to use this bodybuilding technique for building muscles. Most people, when they start a rep and get stuck near the bottom, they drop the weight against the safety pins or have their spotter help rack it. Instead, you should continue pushing against that immovable weight for a good twenty seconds.
On barbell curls, you would most likely come to a grinding halt about two or three inches into the rep, when your arms are slightly bent. You know you won't make the rep but you continue to pull on the bar for as long as you can before finishing the set.
