It’s no secret that it takes time to build muscle but what if you could do it faster by working smarter rather than harder. Well that’s exactly what i want to go over today the 5 biggest & best muscle building tips for beginners & naturals. You might be thinking well who the heck are you to be giving me tips on building muscle & that’s a very fair question. Afterall i spend most of the time on this channel talking about fat loss but my experience in fitness is firmly rooted in natural bodybuilding. I took myself from being a chubby teenager with hardly any muscle to a 230 pound fitness model & I did it all naturally. So if you want to learn how to build muscle using steroids there are probably way better sources out there but if you want to learn how to do it naturally give this video a chance because I spent over 10 years focusing on finding the fastest ways to build muscle, & in the process of opening 3 gyms I also prepped a lot of men & women for natural bodybuilding & bikini competitons. So today I want to give you all my most guarded muscle building secrets for free. I’m also going to do my best to make all these tips unique so it’s not going to be the same old stuff that you’ve heard over & over again like simply telling you to eat more protein. With that said let’s start with the very first tip which is to incorporate periodization. If done correctly this is one of the most powerful things you can do to improve your muscle strength & size consistently. In a nutshell periodization is the systematic breakdown of your training plan over the course of time & it will include micro meso & macro Cycles. Which will esentially break down your training plan in to weeks months & years. But instead of explaining to you every possible way that you could incorporate different cycles of periodization I’d rather give you guys a simple actionable plan to consistently make progress using the exact periodization strategy that helped me the most. Youre gonna start by finding out what maximal weight load you can lift for each of your compound exercises for roughly 9 to 10 reps. This means that if you select a weight that you can do for 11 reps you should up that weight & the same goes vice versa if you select a weight that’s too heavy & you can only do it for 7 reps drop the weight. You’re going to stick this rep range for 2 to 3 weeks straight & you’re going to try to increase the weight that you’re using over the course of these two to three weeks again staying within that 9 to 10 rep range. After those two to three weeks are over you’re going to switch to a rep range of 5 to 7 reps. Again find the maximum weight you could do for that rep range which should obviously be more weight than what you were doing for 9 to 10 reps. Now you’re going to stick to this new rep range for another two to three weeks once again trying to up the weight whenever you can as long as you stay Within that 5 to 7 rep range. Finally after youre done with those weeks you’re going to do a rep range of 3 reps for all those compound exercises again for two to 3 weeks before switching back to the original 9 to 10 rep range. When you come back to the 9 to 10 rep range you’ll notice that you were significantly stronger & able to lift more weight. And you just continuously work through these Cycles. Every time you come back to an old rep range you want to try to increase your weight load even if it’s by 2.5 lbs. This method helped me break through some of my biggest plateaus that I’ve experienced with building muscle. Literally do exactly that & I promise you won’t be disappointed with your results. Let’s move on to the second tip increase meal frequency. Now I know this goes against my typical advice that I give for fat loss. For fat loss meal frequency doesn’t matter that much but building muscle requires a lot of calories especially if youre struggling with building muscle you’re going to need a lot of food. The only way that you’re going to be able to eat enough thro…

For all practical purposes, there is still PLENTY of other evidence that there is a per-session volume threshold for most people around 5-10 sets that I could’ve referenced instead. James Krieger cites a threshold of “somewhere around 6-8 sets per muscle group per training session” in his extremely thorough literature review, which you can read here: https://weightology.net/the-members-area/evidence-based-guides/set-volume-for-muscle-size-the-ultimate-evidence-based-bible/]

Want to know how my good friend, and bodybuilding legend, Jay Cutler built a chest big enough to win the Mr Olympia 4x’s? As we trained I asked Jay all the questions you would want answered about his chest routine and training philosophy. It’s not often you get to hear him go into this much detail about a specific workout so make sure you check this out if you’re looking to build a bigger chest or build up strength in your bench press. This is a complete chest routine from warm-up, compound movements, isolation movements and finishing movements.
