How To Weight Train And Get Ripped

Jun 6, 2008
Nearly every man wants to improve his stamina, strength and overall muscle tone and one of the surefire techniques to do this is weight training. Contrary to popular myth, lifting weights will not turn you into an Arnold Schwarzenegger clone overnight. It takes a lot of work and a lot of planning to build muscle mass via weight training.

Many bodybuilding guides are written for people who do not have the genetic blessings needed for a mesomorphic muscle building physique, These guidebooks walk you through the physiological changes that go on in muscle building programs. Every time you lift weights and feel soreness, that is because you have damaged the muscles and they heal by adding more muscle mass.

The trick to this is that you need to feed your body in fairly tight window after weight training. Protein eaten within 30 minutes to an hour or so after lifting will be cannibalized by your body and turned into muscle mass. Most of the supplement market for weight training is built around ways to short circuit this by either lengthening the window that your body gloms onto proteins, or by preloading your body with proteins before the weight training regimen.

Nobodys weight training program will ever be an overnight success story. Schwarzenegger trained for seven years before entering his first competition. It will take muscle and sweat and a lot of pain, and a sensible plan for how to structure your lifting times and recuperation times.

Written in clear, concise language, many weight training guides talk about the fundamentals of how to start the sport. This includes how to get the most out of it from figuring out the kind of weight training your body will react to best, to scheduling individual lifting routines to focus on specific body parts, for getting the toned, muscular look you want from weight training.

They also cover everything you need to hone your body, building the thick V neck that you need to show off your shoulder lists, building a deep chest and powerful pectorals, and even doing whole body workouts to cover your thighs, abs and glutes.

Simple, straightforward instructions cover virtually all aspects from nutrition to lifting plans, including what mixtures of proteins and carbohydrates you should be taking at specific body weights to weight lifting goals. Additionally, they cover details on upping the intensity of your workout, the notion that you need to lift to complete exhaustion to get the maximum benefit is a critical part of weight training. It is also one of the most difficult ones to execute well because most people lift to meet certain positive goals and do not habitually lift to the point of failure.
