Strength Training for Size and Bulk

The result will be larger and stronger muscles.

Brody Beach has a passion for helping others achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. Due to this, it is very important to allow your muscles adequate time to rest and rebuild. Brody's mission is to help as many people as possible to develop the bodies they truly desire. Also make sure to get some protein in you within a half and hour, no longer than 1 hour after your workout. The more protein you can get the better. Make sure you give your muscles the necessary time they need to recuperate and recover.

Now in terms of nutrition and protein, make sure you are fueling the machine. Training more than that could actually hurt you. Since your goal is to put on size and bulk, you want to make sure you are doing the exercises and treating your body in a way that will facilitate the results you are looking for. Your muscles grow and get stronger when they are repairing. The second set should be done ! with a weight where you fail between 4-6 reps.

If your goal is to get bigger and develop the size and bulkiness of your muscles there are some very important points you will want to keep in mind both in and out of the gym. In this article we will specifically look at the number of reps and weights to use, the frequency you work each muscle group, and your protein intake.

In order to get your muscles to grow and increase in size, you need to force them to expand. The first set should be done with a weight in which you fail somewhere between 6-8 reps. To do this you are going to want to do fewer reps with higher amounts of weight. I do not advocate working each muscle group (other than abs) more than once per week but definitely not more than twice in seven days. If you really push yourself, once every seven days will be fine as your muscles will need time to rebuild. Before you get into any of your "real sets" be sure to loosen up and warm up properly w! ith some lighter weight to get your muscles ready for what is ! coming.< /p>

When you're ready to go, I suggest doing 3-4 sets depending on the muscle group you are working. I would suggest doing 3-4 exercises per muscle group.

Realize that when you lift, you are breaking muscle tissue down. For a free copy of one of Brody's ebooks and to receive a free personalized weight loss/fitness program designed by Brody, visit Getting adequate protein will help your muscles to recover and rebuild quicker.

Follow these tips and you will be on your way to increasing the size and bulk of your muscles. Try to get at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body fat, preferably more if you can. The key is to break your muscle tissue and cause them to fail (with heavier weight) and then giving them ample time to rebuild and recover through ample rest and adequate protein. The last set should be done with a weight that causes you t! o fail on rep 3 or 4.
