How to Gain Muscle
A workout to build extreme
muscle size is all about what works for you. Our bodies are all different and
that best way to find your best fit for an extreme muscle workout is to try
different things. You’ll likely find several of the options here work for you
and that’s ideal. Most workouts have a limited shelf life. In order to keep
seeing results, you need to change it up and continue subjecting your body to
new stresses. This forces your muscles to get stronger through adaptation.
When developing your workout
routine, recognize that abs, calves, and bicep are muscles groups that respond
to unconventional lifting routines, at times. Some people experience the most
muscle growth from routines that go against the logic common for these muscle
groups (heavy lifting).
Extreme Muscle Size Workout Routines
A basic routine to build
extreme muscle size is the single-set routine. As indicated by the name, this
workout involves only one set of exercises per routine. This is an ideal workout
for a beginner to the bodybuilding world.
While this routine can show initial results comparable to those of
multiple-set routines, at some point you will need to increase your workload.
Even an experienced lifter can gain muscle from a workout like this. It can be a
welcome break for the body. Try working all muscle groups in a workout.
A multiple-set routine, also as
the name indicates, is a workout that calls for multiple sets of the same
bodybuilding exercises. Each set should have the same amount of reps in it. The
most effective way to gain muscle from a workout like this is by using light to
medium weights. The high number of reps in each set, paired with multiple sets,
compensates for the lack of very heavy weight being lifted.
Most workouts focus on three sets per exercise.
A more intense workout for
building extreme muscle size is the pyramid routine. The idea of pyramid is used
here as these routines use sets with the same exercises, but different amounts
of weight and different reps per set. The idea is to structure a workout that
forms a pyramid. You may start with a light weight for your first set, at a
certain number of reps, and then switch to a heavier weight for fewer reps. This
workout requires a time investment but provides huge muscle gains.
