Sometimes the best way to to tell when something is false is if it says “easy” in the title. But if you don’t already know how to build muscle easily, you’ll be happy to learn that there are ways, even if you want to build muscle up quickly.
What most people don’t recognize is the fact that almost everything they’ve read about workout routines to build muscle is wrong. Or if not wrong, inefficient.
The most efficient (and most effective) ways to build up muscle are not the most popular ones. If they were, gym memberships would be at an all-time low.
Because the best workouts for building muscles are short and simple, they only require you to work out between two and four times each week.
Most commercial businesses that cater to the work out crowd are setup based around the idea that you would rather use their commercial gym equipment than your own because they have more of it, and you could never afford the money or space involved to buy everything they give you access to. When they try to sign you up for a membership, gyms will break down the cost into a daily dollar amount to make it seem less.
But when you only exercise a few times a week, that daily dollar cost of a gym membership is obviously wrong. And as far as the exercise equipment is concerned, the best way to build muscle doesn’t require most of those machines anyway.
The method of how to build muscle that we’re speaking about is high intensity training. It’s based on the idea that short, single-set exercises that include full range of motion are more beneficial than multiple sets of the same low-impact muscle workouts.
Research has shown that it’s actually faster to build muscle up if you give your muscles a break in between workouts. Between one and three days between each workout routine. And that is what gyms are afraid of.
