How to Build Muscle

This is an important article that discusses the most important strength training factors that determine if a workout has an optimal muscle building effect. When developing a workout or program in order to build muscle, there are training parameters that can be modified in order to create a more focused muscle building effect.

Here are the key factors that will help you build muscle fast.

How to Build Muscle

1. TENSION: Amount of weight you lift for a particular exercise!

2. STRESS: Accumulated metabolic stress from incomplete rest between sets and
pushing higher volume sets.

3. DAMAGE: Microtrauma in the muscle produced from intensive strength training.

4. TIME UNDER TENSION: Developing work capacity and muscular endurance to
push the total duration of the set with progressively heavier weights.

5. INTENTIONAL TRAINING: Placing great intention on the working muscle groups to
ensure complete engagement, optimal range of motion (ROM) for the lift, and good
dynamic motor control.
