Here Are Some Tips To Help You Get Huge, Fast


There are a lot of conflicting opinions out there in the world of fitness on how to get huge, fast. Everyone has their own personal gimmick on how to accomplish this, which can prove to be quite confusing to the neophyte bodybuilder who just wants to hear some absolute truths about how he or she should plan out his/her workouts.

Some people claim that a high-volume approach is essential to muscle growth, insisting that a high-rep program is necessary to flush the muscles with blood and trigger growth. Others are all about the weight and a low number of reps. The truth, however, is that you should always be in the middle ground between these two extremes.

And honestly enough, you’ll often hear the same advice from most of the people who managed to get ripped: you don’t need to perform more than 8 to 12 reps per set. This is the range that both physiologically and anecdotally best elicit muscle growth. The next argument that you often hear is that the greater variety of exercises, the greater the stress you will place on your musculature in the long run and, therefore, greater growth. Not so, we say.

If gaining muscle mass is your primary goal, you should stick to the basics. Compound exercises such as the deadlift, squat and bench press are the most popular exercises in weight-training for a reason: they just plain work. You don’t need to experiment too much with more complex ones, just stick to these and you’ll begin to see results, guaranteed.

This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t apply any new variables to your workouts, though. Progression is the key to muscle growth and progression means that you’re always challenging your body. Back again to what we said about the 8 to 12 rep range: if you can perform more than 12 reps and still maintain proper form, you’re not putting enough weight on the bar.

If you want to get ripped, you have to work to failure in this rep range and that means that after the 12th rep, you simply can’t maintain good form anymore. That means you’re giving your body a challenge. Of course, there’s a bit more you can do than just pushing your body to its limits in the gym to get jacked. Certain supplements can help you out, so don’t be afraid or ashamed to try them out. Some of the best are creatine, beta-alanine, whey protein, BCAAs, and glutamine.
