Four Weight Lifting Tips To Help You Lose Weight and Gain Muscle

Aug 17, 2007
Are you working your hardest to loss fat and gain muscle, but nothing seems to work? I feel your pain. I've worked out for years but did not get the results I was looking for. But after years of failure I finally learned that the weight lifting tips taught by most professional bodybuilders does not work for most people.

This article will give you four weight lifting tips to help you lose weight and gain muscle fast.

Tip 1- The most important weight lifting tip I can give you is when you are working out try to train briefly. When lifting weights try not to do a weight lifting routine that takes over an hour. If you are able to do a workout routine for much more than an hour there is something wrong with your intensity, which will be addressed in tip 2. Just remember, quality is more important than quantity. Work short and hard and you will get better results.

Tip 2- Bring your hardest, most intense workout each time. Do the most reps you can do with perfect form. If you do an 8 rep program but can do 12 you should either add more weight or do the 12 reps. The reason you need to do this is because your body needs to be challenged or it will never adapt to the new muscles being built or the fat being lost.

Tip 3- Do not get into a routine and never change it. You need to add weight and or reps frequently. If you never progress you will never gain more muscle. I would suggest adding 10 lbs a week, so if you do 160 lbs one week, go up to 170 lbs.

Tip 4- Never train the same muscle two days in a row. Your muscles need time to recover so that they can grow. I would recommend either working ever muscle every other day or working a specific muscle group, like legs or chest, every day, six days a week, taking one day off. this will allow your muscles to recover while you work a different muscle group each day.

If you do the above weight lifting tips you should see a dramatic change in how your muscles grow or how you lose weight. It is important that you do all of the above tips because they will help you to achieve the best possible workout that you can get.
