Muscle Building Secrets
Weight Training Routine Tips
for Explosive Muscle Mass Growth
Muscle building secrets do exist. They aren't really secrets but they get lost in all the misinformation available on building muscle mass so most bodybuilders either forget about them or never learned them in the first place.
If muscle building is your current goal with your bodybuilding program you'll want to pay attention to these muscle building secrets.
You want to be able to train each body part with as much resistance as possible, with the basic exercises, and with a high level of intensity.
When it comes to building muscle mass, the longer you've been weight training, the more muscle mass you've built and the stronger you are, the more rest and recovery time you are going to need.
When you're just starting out and trying to build muscle mass you can train more often. With your lack of strength relative to more advanced bodybuilders, your body doesn't need as much time to recover from each workout.
All things being equal when trying to build muscle, it takes a pair of muscular legs a lot longer to recover from a workout of high intensity squatting with 450 pounds than a workout of squatting with 135 pounds.
This is why you see more advanced bodybuilders training each body part only once every five, six or seven days, depending on their training split, training volume, and intensity levels.

Let's take a look at a solid training split for an intermediate bodybuilder that would fit with this routine and help you build muscle quickly.
A solid training split is one of the key muscle building secrets. Without it you're guaranteed to over train and build little, if any, muscle mass.
- Chest and Delt
- Legs and Abs
Depending on such muscle growth factors as recovery ability genetics, strength, training volume and intensity, you may be getting too much recovery on a routine like this and will need to adjust accordingly. Maybe you only need 5 days of rest between body parts.
Your body is always in flux and the variables are always changing. While the muscle building secrets and principles are solid, you always need to make tweaks to a given routine so that it works best for you.Build Muscle Mass - Home Page
