I’m not sure why, but it does seem to be a NEW revelation for many, who for some reason are denying, refusing to believe, refusing to understand or perhaps fearing the FACT that in order for you to pack on muscle mass, to build some muscle, you MUST lift heavy weights.
And guess what?
Sometimes…. perhaps even MOST of the time, it’s gonna HURT…. and you’re gonna HAVE to become immune to blasting through this “pain barrier” that Arnold talks about during the video below…..
The TRUTH is simple here, and, I am learning that the TRUTH about what it REALLY takes to build muscle is offending MANY people out there.
I’m noticing how people react when we tell them to:
- Be Consistent
- Train / Lift Heavy Weights
- Train Intensely
- Make Progress / Keep Getting Stronger
If you want to build muscle, the truth is plain and simple: Keep getting stronger, pump up weights ain’t gonna cut it.
Eat plenty of high quality food.
Prepare to travel this road alone more often than not. I’ve burned through training partners since I was a 13 year old kid. I’m lucky enough to have a few training partners today who get after it, but most are not as lucky.
Plug in your headphones and turn up the music. When you train, you’re gonna have to go to war with the gym, and, like Arnold said, “Go through the pain barrier if you want to become a champion.”
Do the work….
