3 HORRIBLE MISTAKES GUYS MAKE
THAT KEEP THEM SCRAWNY & WEAK
DOING BODY PART SPLIT ROUTINES BEFORE YOU HAVE STRENGTH & SIZE
If you can’t bench your bodyweight 10 times, then you must work on getting stronger first before doing split routines, if you hope to get jacked.
Strength is the quality everything else can be built on. If your nervous system isn’t ready and your bones, tendons & ligaments aren’t strong, you’re not going to be able to support the muscle you’re trying to build.
If you want to add lean muscle mass to your frame you must understand that it has been scientifically proven that Strength IS Size.
The best built guys always come from a strength background before they started training with split routines and body part isolation workouts.
Look at the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger as an example. He started out as an Olympic lifter and Powerlifter before he got into bodybuilding. Arnold built the foundational frame needed to support all that muscle in his teens with basic compound movements.
Even Arnold’s mentor and 3X Mr. Universe, Reg Park, could deadlift 700 lbs, squat 605 lbs and bench press 500 lbs and this was before steroids even existed!
BOTTOM LINE: If you see a huge ripped guy at the gym isolating muscle groups with super light weight, just remember that’s not what built the size you see initially.
TRYING TO GET 6-PACK ABS WITH COUNTLESS ABS EXERCISES
Performing any big lifts or compound exercises (that use multiple muscle groups) requires all of your abdominal muscles to be engaged.
When you use free weights and full body exercises your abs are getting worked so you don’t need to train them again at the end of your workout.
BOTTOM LINE: When you do a compound free weight exercise that works more than one muscle group, you use your core (abs & lower back). Spend your time on the exercises that give you the most results instead of wasting time on exercises that only isolate the abs like crunches, sit-ups or leg raises.
SPENDING WAY TOO MUCH TIME AT THE GYM
This may sound counter-intuitive but working out too many days a week and for too long is putting a halt to gains because it slows down the release of your muscle building hormones.
Workouts that are under an hour long release the most muscle building hormones.
Look, if you’ve been making these mistakes don’t get down on yourself. We’ve all been there. It’s actually NOT YOUR FAULT. For whatever reason, nobody had shared this information with you before.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have trained with several super strong pro bodybuilders, my high school friend and boss who has competed in powerlifting and I’ve collaborated with hundreds of other top fitness pros & strength coaches in the industry.
BOTTOM LINE: Unless you have nothing else to do and enjoy socializing and hanging out at the gym on a daily basis for hours upon hours it’s just not needed. You can get far better results with shorter focused workouts less often.
