Build Muscles Fast, Unless You Have All Day to Waste

Aug 5, 2008
The reason most people don't start an exercise or muscle building program is they assume they don't have the time. The truth is you don't need that much time at all. Sure if you listen to steroid users in bodybuilding magazines you naturally assume you have to abuse your body for a 2 hour workout every day. This isn't the case, and the truth is, anyone can fit a bodybuilding program into their life. How much time do you waste watch TV every day?

The belief that you have to slave away in the gym for hours every day to change the shape of your body puts most people off. The truth is you only need to do a few hours a week, and this can be split into small routines spread along the week.

You can achieve an effective muscle building workout with an average time of 20 minutes a day. Most people can find a spare 20 minutes once they realize just how much time they waste every day doing nothing. That time can be spent changing the shape of your body, and increasing your strength and fitness levels.

We are lead to believe that the more work we put into our workouts the bigger the results will be. This couldn't be further from the truth. This is another reason why most people that go to the gym don't put on any quality muscle, because in the end they're over training.

Once you know exactly how little exercise you actually need to do to build muscle it actually becomes enjoyable, and you won't miss the time that it takes. It's about training smart, and then it's what you do in the gym rather than how much you do.

Your muscles actually grow when you're resting, and not when you're working out. This means that the recovery period is just as important as working out. All you need to do is train each body part just once a week. Any more than this and your progress will go backwards.

Bodybuilders that are taking steroids and growth hormones can train every body part twice a week because these drugs reduce recovery time. In the real world this doesn't happen so the correct amount of recovery time is important.

Over training is a problem for a lot of weight trainers and body builders. This can even cause some people to train even more because they think what they're doing is still not enough.

When you get everything right, building muscle doesn't take that much time at all. It's all about doing it right, and doing it right isn't doing it more.
