Time To Build Muscle!

More strength will always equal more muscle. Plus, it’s embarrassing to be really big and have no strength. Also, strength is the basis for every physical skill. If you’re an athlete and you want more endurance, more speed, more agility, etc….. all these physical qualities will improve when you improve your strength.

  • Body Weight Training –  Start with bodyweight (BW) training first because you should master your own bodyweight before you try lifting more weights in the form of iron. Practice the basics: Pushups, Pullups, Dips, Squats, Pistols, Crunches, V-Situps, etc. Move on to harder versions of each move when those get easy. Also BW training is great for strengthening your tendons.
  • Weight Training — Weight training is great for building strength. And you don’t need a lot of expensive equipment. An Olympic weightlifting bar set is all you need to start. You want to always make sure to lift with proper technique though. Make sure you start with an empty bar and work your way up from there.
  • Kettlebell Training – Is a great strength builder as well. You build strength at odd angles and you can do olympic lifting style moves like the snatch, clean and jerk, etc with much less training than with a barbell. You can get relatively good at these exercises fast. And if something goes wrong there is less weight to drop on yourself or the floor.
