Perhaps Arnold said it best when he said NO PAIN NO GAIN. Our mindset in bodybuilding today is that we want results and we want them now, but many are unwilling to put in the intense time it takes to achieve the results. Many would rather research the next quick-fix drug than hang out at the gym. As I say at the end of all my articles, “Sweat eventually hardens into muscle.” I find that 99% of the guys or girls I see at the gym are lounging during their workouts and no matter how much they do, they don’t even break a sweat. I can’t say loud enough or often enough that your workouts need to be harder, longer, and more frequent. Don’t whine to me about overtraining… that’s a modern excuse for not doing your duty in the gym. Exercising is serious business. I did these levels of routines and you can too. If you’ve made it this far in this article, it sounds to me like you’re a cut above the rest and serious about getting the most out of your time at the gym.
Okay, so what does it mean to work longer? Does it mean spending 2 hours on the chest and 3 on the legs during a workout? Well, not exactly, but I think the idea of working each part of the body longer will add value. The goal of this article is to dispel the myth that working each body part one day a week is acceptable for achieving the results of a competitive bodybuilder. It frankly isn’t! If you really want to gain muscle size, you have to force muscle growth.
Have you ever seen the gigantic size of an Olympic sprinter’s thighs? I would kill for thighs that size. Do you think that sprinter only trained his legs once a week? Give me a break. He was on the track several days a week running the 50-meter dash. And the days that he didn’t run, he trained with weights.
It’s not too much to expect you to work your body parts twice a week!
If you want to be successful in bodybuilding, if you want to shed your big shirt and pants, start working on your body parts twice a week. The routines in this section will help you prepare to train muscle groups twice a week, achieve adequate recovery time for rapid muscle growth. If you accept this challenge:
* You will get twice as many workouts compared to a normal guy at the gym
* Expect more dramatic and faster muscle gains.
*Expect the routine to create better muscle definition and vascularity
* Expect the mind to feed off of physical success and motivate you even more. You’ll be looking forward to your gym time.
