The Secret To Fast Muscle Growth

By Don Demarco

Have you been pumping iron for months without any visible muscle growth?

This technique may help your muscles get back into growth mode.

Progressive overload is one of the basic principles of weight training, and it is essential if you want to accelerate muscle growth.

The most important factor for accelerating muscle growth is progressively overloading your muscles with weight or the amount of reps you perform every week.

I stress, you can only accelerate muscle growth by continuously and systematically raise the intensity of your sessions in the gym.

The reason for this is that muscle growth takes place as a response to stress and changes in the body’s environment.

If the environment remains the same, you body won’t need to adapt; it’s a simple fact.

For instance, if you now squat 200 pounds for seven repetitions, and do the same thing for three months, your muscles won’t grow significantly.

Only when you build strength, can you accelerate muscle growth.

Only when you target strength gain, during every exercise, will you see an appreciable increase in muscle size.

This fact can be described as a universal law of bodybuilding, and it applies to whatever approach to the sport you take.

Bodybuilders, who don’t get this law, keep lifting the same amount of weight, getting only disappointment instead of results.

They’re just investing time without getting any returns.

Simply put, they are unable to accelerate muscle growth because they don’t increase their strength.

On the contrary, people who consistently increase the weight or repetitions they do, successfully accelerate muscle growth.

The core of your training routine should be small but continuous increases in the weight you lift and the repetitions you do.

You muscles will get stronger and larger because of this.

If you don’t give your body a challenge, you won’t give it any incentive to make your muscles grow.

Therefore, there is no progression without growth.

Only when you progressively overload your body will you be able to accelerate muscle growth.

The most effective way to implement a progressive strategy into your workout is to keep a training diary.

Keep a record of all exercises you do, how much you lift, and the repetitions.

Knowing exactly how you performed in your previous session, will help you to improve, little by little, in every session.

You should also use your diary to write down your goals.

When you write down your goals, you charge yourself with achieving them.

These records also motivate you, as they help you track your progress.

An increase of five pounds this week may not seem very significant, but when you consider months of progress, you’ll find the increase in weight and repetitions amazing; in fact, you’ll also realise how these increases help to accelerate muscle growth.
