The Secret Of The Perfect Program!Written by Trent Brook
Another critical factor to be aware of, is efficient use of time. If a routine is performed in approximately one hour, muscle gains will be much less than if exact same routine was performed in half and hour. This aspect is a “secret” to most. Time is one of most effective ways to increase intensity of effort.
When performing a workout, your breathing should be more rapid than normal. This should start to happen within first minute of your workout. Ideally, your breathing should not return to a normal pace until at least ten minutes after you finish your workout. If your breathing pace has not increased, then you are not training rapidly enough. This will seriously reduce your rate of muscle gains.
I have rarely seen guys at gym willing to train at required pace. An unwillingness to work hard is number one reason for lack of muscle gains. To inspire maximum results from training, you must train hard. Your breathing and heart rate must be elevated. But you know what. Such a pace only needs to be sustained for fifteen to twenty minutes. Any additional length will prove a waste of your time and effort.
When I first learned this secret, I focused on this one factor almost entirely. Doing this had a direct impact on all of other factors involved. Training largest muscle groups of body at an elevated pace, until momentary exhaustion, literally forces you to workout briefly. Fifteen to twenty minutes maximum.
By forcing a time constraint on your workouts, you immediately raise your level of intensity. Simultaneously, you will have managed to reduce amount of time spent training. The absolute opposite of this method is working out six times a week, in a vain attempt to produce greater muscle gains. This is simply not an option. If that was what natural bodybuilding really required, I’d consider it to be a bad use of my time.
How To Get The Greatest Possible Muscle Gains... And... Still Have Time Left Over To Just Goof-Off!Written by Trent Brook
The number one thing you need to get from this article is this. Significant increases in muscular size of any particular muscle group, can not be achieved without similar increases throughout entire body. Any and all exercise performed has an indirect effect on all body’s subsystems and muscular structures.
An exercise which primarily involves legs, produces to varying degrees, muscle growth in all other muscles throughout body. The relative size of muscles involved largely determines how great indirect effect will be. The larger muscle group, greater overall indirect effect on other body parts. Got it. Good
This indirect effect is result of intensity of effort. If intensity is low, indirect muscle growth is minimal. If intensity is high, indirect muscle growth is absolutely incredible. But remember, these muscle gains are not stimulated through quantity of exercise performed, but from overall intensity of effort.
Maximizing intensity of effort requires same style of training for absolutely everyone. That mean you and me. However, individual performance is relative. For example. while performance of a 100 pound bench press may involve a high level of intensity for one person, a considerably stronger trainee could perform same exercise with a much lower intensity. But as we now know beyond a shadow of doubt. High levels of intensity must be reached, before an increase in muscle size will be produced. If you train below that particular level, your muscle gains will be practically non-existent.
Although level of intensity required to produce maximum muscle gains may actually be below maximum intensity, determining exactly when that point has been reached during your workouts is near impossible. Even if required intensity for maximum muscle gains could be converted into a percentage, you wouldn’t be unable to determine accurately when that exact level is reached during an exercise. Working at one hundred percent, maximum intensity of effort guarantees that this level is always achieved, regardless of whether it is an actual requirement or not. Are you following me?
