Hypertrophy – or muscle gain – is, and should be treated as, a science. Therefore, bodybuilding for mass is a science.
Just as with any other science there are certain ‘laws’, or a certain ‘way’, in which to progress for optimal results.
If you are like me, you have had times where you ‘know’ you have found ‘the way’.
Everything is going fine.
You workout and swear your muscles have grown before the next time you hit the weights.
However, things inevitably begin to go wrong.
You realise you have reached a plateau. You are pressing the same weight and can not seem to increase even incrementally, you appear stuck in the same rep range, you feel tired and when workout time approaches it’s like ‘Oh man, how am I gonna get through this workout?’
And worst of all…your muscles aren’t growing. In fact, they appear to be diminishing!
I hear you…I’ve been there more than a few times.
Bodybuilding for Mass – The Law
The basic rules for continued gains, when bodybuilding for mass, are:
- Changing up the workouts
- Proper diet and supplementation
- Record keeping
- Adequate rest and recuperation
Changing up the workouts:
This is crucial if you wish to make continued progress. Change can never occur whilst things remain the same. If you keep doing what you’re currently doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re currently getting. Makes sense right?
Changing up your workouts can be done in many, many ways. Whilst any change is good, understanding how to make changes in a ‘certain way’ will definitely reap superior results.
Proper diet and supplementation:
When bodybuilding for mass it is imperative that you understand, and abide by, the principles of a proper mass gain diet.
Again, there are certain ‘laws’ around developing the right nutrition plan for you.
There is a fine line between what is right, what is wrong and what is optimal.
We want optimal.
I will be covering ways to develop your own personal optimal diet and nutrition program, as well as supplementation.
This is a big one!
It seems what appears the easiest thing to do is often the most overlooked.
Honestly, out of every 100 people I observe in gyms, only about 5% are vigilant with keeping a training diary.
I don’t get this. I have a complete record of ALL my workouts dating back years.
How the heck can you track your progress, yet alone remember exercises and reps and weight lifted, if you don’t maintain a workout diary?
Record keeping does not only relate to your workouts.
On bodybuildingformass.com I will provide examples, and tools, you can use to effectively keep track of your progress. You will be so glad that you did.
Adequate rest and recuperation:
Hey, your muscles don’t grow in the gym!
You can work your butt of with the weights, but let me tell ya, if you don’t give yourself proper rest and enough sleep then those muscles aint gonna grow, period.
I will be covering each of these ‘Laws’ in greater detail respectively, throughout the articles on this site.
I look forward to working with you and hearing of your success.
