It is a fact that body builders gain muscles at a very fast rate. So, just how do they do this and why can’t you have the same results? Basically, body builders know the techniques on how to gain muscles at a very fast rate. In fact, two months before a body building competition, you will see that they have body fat and their muscles aren’t really defined. However, when the day for the competition comes, you will see that they are incredibly ripped.
So, just what are the secrets for gaining muscles at a very fast rate?
Actually, it's not really a secret. You may not be properly doing the exercises and following your program by the book. A lot of people make mistakes when it comes to building muscles and gaining muscle mass.
For example, a lot of people think that doing each exercises at a very fast rate will increase their muscle mass. However, this is a sure fire way to slow down muscle growth. Slow rep speed is one of the keys to muscle growth. Slow is good when it comes to lifting weights. For example, when you do bench presses, make sure that you lift the barbell in a slow, controlled, and smooth movement. The slower you go, the more muscle contractions there is. And, with more muscle contractions, the more you promote muscle strain which will in turn promote muscle growth.
Another key to muscle growth is control. Never throw your weight around and never ever throw the weights you are lifting around too. This is not only inefficient when it comes to promoting muscle growth, but it is also dangerous and may result in muscle and joint injuries.
