When it comes to building muscle mass, you should know there are many ways people go about it, and I’m not here to debunk any one’s else’s science. However, no amount of research or guidance can beat the golden rules imparted to us by the big massive legend Dorian Yates!
The muscle mass and size that Yates was able to achieve can only be possible if there was clear cut science behind it. When it comes to bulking up and building mass, some basics can get you to a level that is critical to gaining muscle. These rules aren’t as well renowned as one would think, because frankly if they were every other man you see would be donning a six pack. What most people don’t realize is how important basic knowledge is. If you don’t follow this then, any advanced level techniques you are using are futile. So here are a few rules that will help you beef up.
1. Train Insane Or Remain The Same
Intensity counts for muscle growth: Train hard or go home, the motto most weight lifters abide by. However few understand that intensity is vital for muscle growth. Some people feel that training too hard stimulates stress, and it’s absolutely true. It is the response to the stress that causes muscles to grow. It’s really all about adaptation.
Train until you know you’ve done a good day’s work, almost 92%. Give just a little room to relax and heal your body. Certain techniques such as rest-pause, forced reps, and drop sets can help you most past the positive failure and gain you the results you desire. Whatever you do, get rid of the mindset that training less than your complete effort will get you the body you want. Exertion is a must, a muscled body is earned. If you’re lazy then you simply can’t reap the benefits that come from a toned physique. Putting in enough intensity caused your muscle fibers to break down and repair anew, it will get you swole.
2. Go Heavy, But Form Matters
Form matters when going heavy: Heavyweights naturally help with muscle building. But how much is heavy enough? Well to be fair, your form greatly matters. For the needed reps you need to be in good shape, that is if you train with a bad form you’ll open yourself to injuries. It’s all about improving, and improving takes time and patience, that are the keys.
Move your way up till you know you’ve reached your level best. If you want to reach the Yates level of mass that Ronnie Coleman did( a little farfetched) then you’ll have to give yourself the room to improve and have to accept the fact that at a given time you can only lift a certain weight mass, and that’s okay. You’ll get to your desired limit soon enough.
