If you’re trying to gain muscle it’s vital that your bodybuilding training is properly and intelligently planned out, so that you get the maximum reward for your hard work.

Lots of folks spend four, five or even more days a week in the gym, with precious little results except maybe for setting gym attendance records. Don’t let this be you.

You need to have a bodybuilding routine where every workout counts – go for quality over quantity every time you train. If what you’re currently doing isn’t getting any results – change it.

As someone once said,

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.”

Lets look at how some aspects of bodybuilding training that works, and that will give meaningful results;

Training Frequency
First, you need to plan a workout routine that has no more than three training days a week – in fact two is better. Your plan should be to give your muscles the growth stimulus they need to get bigger, then get out of the gym and rest.

Two common mistakes here;
1. Not doing enough intelligent hard work to give the growth SARMs Before And After stimulus to the muscles and
2. Not giving the muscles the chance to grow

If your bodybuilding training is based around a load of isolation exercises that are basically shaping and toning exercises then you won’t be providing the growth stimulus, even if you’re in the gym every day, and training over an hour a day. In fact, if this is you, stop it now.

Exercise Selection
To provide the stimulus your muscles need to get bigger, you need to plan your bodybuilding training around major compound lifts like the dead lift, the squat, the bench press and the chin. These are exercises that hit the major muscle groups, and they will give the anabolic effect that you need.

To give your muscles the chance to grow, you need at least one day’s rest between workouts, two is better. And you need to get proper rest, sleep and food to provide the fuel and opportunity your muscles need to grow. Try and aim for eight hours of sleep a night – this will not always be possible, but try and aim for it.
