Build Insane Muscle
The following workout tips will give you five ways to build insane muscle
that will help you gain mass and maintain a great physique. It’s all about
taking in more calories than you burn in order to provide enough fuel to your
muscles. This will be expended in the form of energy that will allow you to
conduct your workouts with the intensity necessary for reaching your goals.
Five Muscle Building Tips
1. Stick to large
muscle groups. These include: the legs, back and chest. These are known as
the essential muscles while the smaller groups, such as the biceps, triceps and
shoulders are called the vanity muscles. When working these muscles keep in mind
that every pound of muscle you add burns more calories. The concept here is
simple. When you do compound exercises that work the essential muscles you are also using
the vanity muscles.
2. Do one long set.
This is what is referred to as a drop set. By choosing this over two or three
individual sets, you will be able to cut the amount of time you spend training
in the gym. A drop set is when you begin with the heaviest weight you an lift
six to 12 times. When you can lift no more, drop the weight to a lower amount.
Continue the set and keep dropping the weight as necessary. There should be
little to no rest in between weight changes. If you are really pushing your
muscles, each set you do will allow for fewer and fewer repetitions even though
the weight has been decreased.
3. Move quickly
between opposing muscle groups. Focus on what you are doing and be
determined to go seamlessly through your different exercises of muscle groups.
Alternate between front and back or exercises that require push and pull. Here
you are working one muscle group, then the opposing one and back and forth again
and again. You don’t need to rest in between since alternating gives the muscle
groups a rest when they aren’t in use.
4. Do hybrid
exercises. These are two or more exercises joined to form one that is more
functional and effective. For example, a wall sit with lateral dumbbell raises
combines two separate movements which is unlike an isolation exercise where only
one movement is used.
5. Try one side at a
time. When you work one leg or arm at a time, you develop muscles that can
actually produce more force behind them. In order for this to work, you must
form good stabilization in your core (abs and lower back) so you can perform
these unilateral exercises.
