12 Muscle Building Tips For Beginners

Looking back over my years of training I wish I knew these principles when I started. They aren't mind-blowing but I think they'll help you out as you begin your muscle building journey.

  1. Get Strong -A stronger muscle is a bigger muscle.
  2. Have More Sex -It's good for you and gives you extra motivation to make gains 
  3. Deadlift -Don't neglect your back and the deadlift is the king of back exercises for adding thicken to your back.
  4. Don't over work -Biceps, triceps, and deltoids are small muscles that do not need more than 10-12 sets total to stimulate growth.
  5. Don't miss workouts -It's like building a castle with bricks. Each workout you put a brick or 2 on the wall, but if you miss a workout you take off a brick.
  6. Eat! -If you think you are eating enough food you most likely aren't. Make the biggest meal of the day the one after your workout.
  7. Eat more red meat, eggs, and drink plenty of water
  8. Sleep like a baby! -Minimum 8 hours os sleep is needed to recover and build.
  9. Start with beginner workouts -Don't try and do the advanced level workouts if you don't know proper form. You'll develop these skills over time.
  10. Research, Research, Research -Knowledge is power, the more you know, the more you'll grow
  11. Eat Fat To Stay Lean -You need healthy fats to stay lean. Avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, almonds, mixed nuts, and peanut butter are all great sources of healthy fats
  12. Listen to people that have done what you want to do. -People that have lived it know what it feels like, they understand what needs to be done, so listen to these people.
