Another tip for building muscle mass would be to lift more weight.
By lifting heavier weights you are stimulating your muscles to grow both in size and strength.
For example, if you want to increase your chest size, you'll need to start gradually increasing your bench press.
It doesn't necessary matter how much weight you move, and how quickly.
You need to work at your own place, don't compare yourself to the guy next door. Focus on yourself and focus on properly engaging the muscles as you lift.
A good muscle building workout would consist of: lifting heavier weights for 4-6 repetitions (sixth rep being extremely hard to complete) for a set of 3.
It's important to mention high intensity training.
High intensity training refers to "lifting like you mean it".
Put some serious passion into your workouts.
It means, pushing yourself hard every time your at the gym. It means loving the gruesome workouts. That's what its gonna take for you to take your physique to the next level.
You want to keep challenging your body. You need to gradually increase the weights, pushing out those extra reps.
It's gonna be painful. You're gonna want to quit. But dig deep, do whatever it takes to keep the intensity high.
This is what it takes to breakdown muscle fibers, causing them to re-grow back stronger then ever.
This is a very important topic, rest.
Resting Is Vital
There's nothing sexy about resting. But rest and recovery is your best friend when it comes to building impressive muscle.
Rest is one of the most important things you can do for your body and its tired muscles.
