If you want to get big… I am talking about the kind of big that girls can’t keep their hands to themselves, and people everywhere you go are always asking if you’re juicing, big…
There are really only a few things you need to get right, but miss any of these critical steps, and you are destined to live a short life of weakness, insignificance, and misery until you die alone on the toilet in a cash-only motel next to a truck-stop on the interstate at the tender age of 43.
Wow - that got dark… but you get the point - we can’t screw this up - read on!
Another way to put this is, MIX IT UP! Don’t just go to the gym and go through the motions with the same workout all the time. Pick a goal, and then pick a routine with a set “end date” (like 4-8 weeks) that allows you to work on that goal - track results and then move on to the next goal/cycle. Rinse & repeat.
This goes for cardio too - mix it up - work in some HIIT or Tabatas, do some long and slow duration stuff, get out of the gym and do sprints, etc.
Not something you need to get psycho about - but if you’re not eating enough quality protein, you WON’T get bigger and you won’t recover efficiently. Shoot for about 1g per lb of bodyweight daily - a little less is ok. Stick to meat and whey protein to keep it simple.
I am telling you right now, aside from lifting weights, if you want to build muscle, sleeping is the most "anabolic" thing you can do - no BS. Most guys do not sleep enough and that makes recovering from workouts very difficult - and if you didn’t know… RECOVERY is the most important thing. You see, you spend hours in the gym tearing down your muscle fibers - the only time they are able to repair themselves and grow back bigger and stronger is when you sleep. Shoot for 7+ hours per night - the more, the better.
I am not talking about stuffing your face with pie once a week. I am talking about using "performance enhancing agents" to speed up the process of recovery and ultimately get you “swoler” faster - catch my drift?
I get it - this is probably a pretty unpopular piece of advice - but if you REALLY want to pack on muscle fast, this is how the “big boys” do it.
But this doesn’t have to be some scary, dirty secret either - not like trying to score some gear from a dealer at the gym in the 90’s. Nowadays, muscle building technology is safer, and REALLY slick… plus - there is a bunch of stuff out there that is pretty safe and still legal - like IGF-1.
Heck - a "stack" of creatine monohydrate, a rock-solid "Test-Booster" and something like an IGF-1 booster would pack on lots of lean shredded mass.
If a stack like that "tickles your fancy" do yourself a favor and… check this out.
