Let's face it, almost hundred percent of men entering thegym or starting a home workout want only one thing – the muscles! Toned, bulkedup, without any fat, in one word - perfect! Is that possible for a regular person, the onewho cannot exercise for more than a couple of times a week for about hour ortwo? Of course it is. So, what are workout routines to build muscles?


There is generally one basic workout type that has to be appliedand that is resistance training. What does it mean? Muscles need some weight tosubdue, some weight that will make resistance for muscles when they need toperform an exercise motion. In those moments, when extra effort has to be madein order to execute the exercise, muscle mass growth is initiated. However, theactual muscle growth does not happen in that moment, but later on, when themuscles are resting and recovering. That is why it is important to rest enoughand properly, which is where some practitioners make a mistake thinking thatmore exercising without resting between the training sessions will create moremuscle mass.

It is important to always use additional weight, but it isalso essential to increase that weight from time to time. This means that atone moment, muscles will easily subdue the current weight and more is needed tokeep the muscles grow.


What would be some workout routines to build muscle mass? Forsome serious trainings, 5 days a week should be used for muscle massbuilding, with one day for complete resting and with one day for some crosscardio training. This cardio is also important because that will activate themuscle fibers in a different way, which is a good thing. Each day shouldfocus different muscle groups. One day should be used for torso building (allsorts of dumbbell and barbell press), next day should be used for back and arms, for example. The third day should be for legs and torso again, and so on. All of thesetraining days must include abdominal exercises for strengthening the core(abdominal area and the corresponding back area).

When the muscle mass reach certain physiological limit, itcan be developed more but supplements must be used. Those are muscle massgainers, energy boosters, fat burners, products for muscle mass recovery andvitamin cocktails, too. Of course, it would be smart to consult an expert whenit comes to using these products.
