Written by Gregg Gillies

Build muscle with a unilateral weight training program. Whether you are feeling stale on your current routine or just looking for a way to improve your workouts and start making progress again, unilateral training is a perfect way to increaserepparttar results of your training time and help you build muscle.

What is unilateral training? It is simply working one side of your body at a time. This is notrepparttar 149522 same as, say, alternate dumbbell curls where you do a rep withrepparttar 149523 left arm, then a rep withrepparttar 149524 right, etc. You do a complete set for one side before moving torepparttar 149525 other.

For example, do a set of 10 reps onrepparttar 149526 leg press with your right leg only then do a set of 10 reps with your left leg only. Unilateral training allows you to increase your focus onrepparttar 149527 muscle you are working by doing a better job of isolatingrepparttar 149528 working muscle.

Your intensity increases because you increaserepparttar 149529 muscle involvement due torepparttar 149530 bilateral deficit. The bilateral deficit meansrepparttar 149531 total weight you can lift by working one limb at a time is more thanrepparttar 149532 total weight you can lift when working both limbs together.

Arm Training - Building Muscle for Bulging Bi's and Tri's

Written by Gregg Gillies

Let's face it, most guys who start lifting want two things - a big bench and big arms. So in this issue we're going to talk about bi's and tri's and I'll share a very effective routine for adding inches to your arms in a very short amount of time.

Everyone wants big arms and it seems as if no one is satisfied with their current arm size. This seems rather strange, since most people constantly blast their arms. There are a few reasons that people don't makerepparttar progress they want when it comes to packing on inches to their arms.

First, they don't workrepparttar 149521 big muscles ofrepparttar 149522 body hard enough. Your arms just aren't going to grow if your big muscles, like your back and legs, aren't growing. You need to work your legs and back hard and concentrate on upping your poundages for these body parts, if you want your arms to grow. Your arms will only get so big withoutrepparttar 149523 rest of your larger muscles getting big as well.

Secondly, a lot of people focus on working their biceps, when in factrepparttar 149524 triceps make up almost 70% ofrepparttar 149525 size of your upper arm. If you want to build big arms, focus on your triceps not your biceps.

And third, most people overtrain their arms. They do as many or more sets for their arms, and do those sets harder, than they do for their back, chest or legs. And on top of that, most exercises forrepparttar 149526 back and chest also workrepparttar 149527 bi's and tri's very hard. You have to cut back onrepparttar 149528 work you do for you arms and uprepparttar 149529 intensity. Quality, not quantity.
