Building muscle is not a super complex process once you start to understand the basic conditions your body needs in order to accomplish packing on pounds to your hardgainer frame.

– Do not go past 5-6 reps on the majority of your warm up sets. Your first set may be comprised of a very light weight for 10-20 reps just to help get loosened up and get the blood flowing but besides that you want to keep the reps low. The reason for this is that you do not want to build up too much lactic acid or accumulate too much fatigue with your warm ups.

– Do not stretch prior to your workout in the hopes of preventing injury. This does not work. The only benefit of stretching before a workout is to assist you getting into positions you may not be capable of reaching (such as a full squat) because you’re tight in particular region (such as the hamstrings and hip flexors). Simply stretching for the sake of injury prevention is an out-of-date idea and does not really work.

– Do not over-analyze and over-think everything you do in the gym. This never gets you anywhere. Do not concern yourself if the incline of the bench is supposed to be 50 degrees or 55 degrees. Do not worry that if you do not supinate at precisely the correct time that you will not activate your biceps optimally. Do not stress out about the precise grip width on the bar. If a person explains to you that a 16? grip on the bench press targets your triceps better than other way, but due to an injury or anatomical difference you can only comfortably use an 18? grip, do not worry about it.

People over-think themselves to death and they never get anywhere because of it. Go to the gym, get stronger, go home, eat, sleep and repeat. Do not turn it into advanced calculus. That is one of the best muscle building tips I can give you.

– Always train both sides of the joint with the same amount of volume. Therefore if you do six sets per week of pressing exercises you need to do six sets per week of pulling exercises. If you do two sets of curls you should do two sets of triceps work. And so on and so on…

– If you can not stimulate your forearms to grow, attempt hitting them with more frequency than other muscle groups. They can easily be trained three times per week and recover with no trouble. In addition to, seek to hold the bottom stretched position of wrist curls for 3-5 seconds per rep.

When you have completed forearm training, hit them with a deep stretch for both the extensors and flexors for 30-60 seconds. These muscle building tips should get the forearms to grow.
