Fast Muscle Mass Building-The Ten Success Principles
As the saying goes, “methods are many, principles are few, methods may change, but principles never do,” this has just as much validity with weight training and bodybuilding as it does anything else. Every day we hear of revolutionary new workout programs, exercises, tricks, quick fix’s, you name it. Though I can’t say I agree on many of the different “methods” of gaining weight and building muscle mass these days, the principles for reaching your goals will always remain the same.
As a result, I have created what I call, “The Ten Success Principles for Fast Muscle Mass Building.” I have listed these principles so that even the skinniest hardgainer can apply and grow from. Follow these principles, ingrain them in your mind, and you will be on the right track for long term success from your efforts. If you’re wondering what is the best way to build muscle fast, then your answers are below. All you have to do is apply these principles.
Principle 1: You Don’t Know what You Don’t Know – Become a Student
When we realize that you don’t know what you don’t know, we can become more teachable and absorb knowledge that we can apply to better our results from the gym. If you have the “know-it-all” attitude, that simply means you are stagnate and your mind will never grow past its current state. Become a student for life to weight training and bodybuilding, read as much material as you can about each subject: training, diet, supplements, the whole works. One word of caution is this: be careful where you get your opinions and information. Only seek those with proven results, and watch out for “arm chair experts” and “magazine bodybuilders.”
Principle 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Far too many trainees today just wonder aimlessly around in the gym doing whatever exercise they like and working out whenever they feel like it. If you don’t have a target, you’re going to hit it with amazing accuracy! In other words, if you don’t know EXACTLY what you are trying to achieve by going to the gym each day, you’re never going to get anywhere. Always make sure you’re on a program, and stick with it to the end. Figure out your “why” and you will be able to overcome any “how.” Always go to the gym knowing exactly what you are going to do down to the last rep of the last exercise.
Principle 3: You Get What You Picture
As David Schwartz says in his fantastic book, The Magic of Thinking Big, “Belief, strong belief, triggers the mind to figuring ways and means and how-to…Disbelief is negative power. When the mind disbelieves or doubts, the mind attracts “reasons” to support disbelief.” Always go to the gym with a positive attitude and a firm belief that you are progressively gaining muscle mass. Wipe out all negative belief about your success or you will pay dbal maxthe price of getting exactly what you pictured.
Principle 4: There is No Great Success without Great Commitment
If you are not committed, you can be swayed. Fix in your mind exactly the results you want, and commit to yourself that you will do what it takes to get it. When you are committed, truly committed, no petty thought or inconvenience will ever stop you on your way to your goal. You will be unstoppable and your end in mind will be a forgone conclusion. As Yoda said, “There is no try, only do.”
