Muscle Development Tips
Tips for muscle development
If you are reading about muscle development tips then it must be assumed that you are just starting out and you have not been pumping iron for a long time. If this is the case then you have something on your side and that is that your muscles have not adapted to weights yet.
Simply put this means that you will put on muscle faster in your first year than any other time in your strength training. The volume of the total weight that you lift is going to be directly proportional to the amount of muscle you gain.
When Arnold and Franco first came to America they used to count all the weight that they lifted in a total workout. This means that if you do a squat with 100 pounds and you do ten reps then you have just lifted one ton. They used these figures to progress and monitor their improvements.
The bottom line is that the only way that you are going to get more muscle on your body is by doing progressive resistance. This obviously takes time as you do not get strong overnight but you should make sure that the weight that you lift is increased every time you train that bodypart.
You are always in complete control of your workouts which means that you are in complete control of the amount of intensity that you put into your workouts. This intensity would be measured by the amount of time you spend resting between sets.
You will certainly be tempted to rest longer between sets as you get closer and closer to the point of failure. You will soon discover that this intensity of your workouts will start to dictate the amount of muscle that you put on as the harder you train the more muscle will be added.
Your technique is vitally important as often one can start a bad habit that is difficult to break. So when starting it is very important that you get someone who knows what they are doing to take a look at the way that you do your movements and give you any advice or tips.
When starting out you should be aware of something called DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) which basically means that 48 hours after you train you will be sore. This comes from the lactic acid build-up from the broken muscle and if you are eating correctly it will take 48 hours to heal completely.
