With the correctinformation, youll build muscle mass faster than youthought possible.If youre frustrated with your muscle gain or fat loss goals,I sympathize with you completely, and understand exactly whatyou are going through. I worked out for years before finallyfiguring out the correct ways to go about building muscles andlosing fat.I finally figured out that the routines and weight lifting tipstouted by professional bodybuilders and the muscle magazines justarent going to work for most people. But take heart, you can startbuilding muscle with effective weight training routines and nutritionprograms.Following are a couple of weight lifting tips that Ive found to beextremely effective in building muscle and adding strength as quicklyas possible. Putting together a program that incorporates the followingweightlifting tips will point you in the right direction and getyou making gains you hadnt thought were possible.Building Muscle Tip #1 - An Intense TwistArthur Jones, inventor of Nautilus, pioneered the concept oftraining with 100% intensity, ie, training to failure. Andthis is an extremely important part of your routine if you areinterested in building muscles as quickly as possible.However, as others caught on toe Arthurs effective trainingideas and the training to failure concept became morewidespread, an important piece of advice by Arthur was forgotten.Arthur suggested that people go beyond failure.And Im not talking about some of the more popular high intensitytechniques available today such as rest-pause, forced reps,drop sets, etc. Im talking about a very specific way of trainingto failure that is very effective for building muscle mass.
  2. 2. Arthur Jones suggested that once you could no longer completeanother repetition, you should continue pushing or pulling onthe weight for approximately another 20 seconds. Obviously,on certain exercises like squats or bench presses, you eitherneed to work in a power rack with safety pins or have a verygood spotter.Lets use the bench press as an example of how to use thisbodybuilding technique for building muscles. Most people, whenthey start a rep and get stuck near the bottom, they drop theweight against the safety pins or have their spotter help rackit. Instead, you should continue pushing against that immovableweight for a good twenty seconds.On barbell curls, you would most likely come to a grinding haltabout two or three inches into the rep, when your arms areslightly bent. You know you wont make the rep but you continueto pull on the bar for as long as you can before finishing the set.Muscle Building Tip #2 - Squat, Squat, SquatYou have to fall in love with the squat. It truly is the kingof all muscle building exercises, bar none. While some peoplecan build muscle mass on almost any training routine or diet,most of us cant. So put as many factors in your favor as youcan control and one of the biggest is work hard on an effectivesquat program.Hard work on the squat is the single most important thing youcan do to ensure your bodybuilding success. Forget about thelatest greatest high tech routine or the newest supplement fad.The key component to any program you do is hard work. Buildingmuscle isnt easy. But it can be made easier. Hardwork will take you much further than your choice of exercises,sets or reps.But if you get the other components of your training program puttogether correctly and then add hard work and dedication, youllbe absolutely amazed at the progress you can make. Youll bebuilding muscle so fast, youll go from a before to an after beforeyou know it.You need to use all the weight you can handle and then add somemore. Since the squat is the toughest weight lifting exerciseyou can do physically, its also the toughest mentally.
  3. 3. Your mind gives in on the squat well before your body does.If you want to gain lots of muscle, you need to put an end to that.Everything you have has to go into your squatting program.The key to the success of rapid weight gain by squatting is theamount of work you put into it. After your warm ups, load the barto a weight you normally do 10 reps with. Now, do 20 reps. No,Im not kidding. Like I said before, the squat is the mostmental exercise there is. Ive never seen anyone, when properlyprepared mentally, fail to get 20 reps with their 10 rep weight.These bodybuilding tips are very effective tips for buildingmuscle and getting stronger. Add them to your weight trainingprogram and watch your muscle mass increase.Keep in mind that weightlifting workouts like this are the bestway for effectively building muscle mass fast butits also the best way to lose fat, completely change the shapeof your body, and keep the fat off. Weight lifting is much moreeffective for fat loss than aerobics or dieting alone.Gregg Gillies is the founder of His articles have appeared inIronman Magazine.
