Muscle Building Basics

There are certain muscle basics everyone should learn. First, increase your caloric and complete protein intake. Then, when you go to the gym, focus on your form. Perform compound movements and train with weights an average of four times per week. Never underestimate the power of rest. Remember, muscle tissue grows outside of the gym when you’re giving your body time to relax and recover following your workouts. We recommend using a night time fat burner like Thermal Ignite PM to help you fall asleep faster, get a deeper, more restful night’s sleep while burning fat.

Range of Motion

Don’t take any shortcuts. You should always aim for the larges ROM you can achieve in your exercises. Your muscles will do more work per rep and it will result in your breaking down more tissue by the end of the workout.  

Ups and Downs

Wondering how to get the most out of lifting weights? Use a weight that will have you failing on the set between the 30 and 40 second mark. Research has show that it’s the time under tension that causes muscles to grow if you are trying to build more muscle. If you’re failing at 20 seconds, the weight was too heavy.

Contradicting Cardio

Do you love you cardio exercises? If so, you’ll be disappointed to know that during times of mass building you do not want to do large amounts of cardio. Chances are you’ll be burning far too many calories. So if you still want to get in some cardio, just take a light job a few days per week for no longer than 20 minutes.


Supplements can play a key role in boosting muscle gains. If you agree with this theory, chances are you are already taking protein supplements, but what else should you incorporate? Creatine seems to be about the most effective strength and size-building supplement. And to boost your performance we recommend a pre-workout like Immortal Pre-Workout to increase your energy and mental focus.
