It does not matter if you are a skinny guy desperately trying to pack on muscle or a not-so-skinny guy trying to convert body mass into muscle gain, bulking up the right way is always a challenge. But that doesn’t mean it’s complicated and Samuel who has trained many clients and competed himself has many years experience in this particular art of training. With the right training regimens to match your body type, the correct balance of calories and nutrients, and a healthy lifestyle you can be on your way to a bigger, stronger you with Samuels' muscle gain training tips!
Seeing new muscle gains doesn’t always require getting on a drastically different workout plan or following an ultra-scientific diet. Small changes can add up to major results and this is why we suggest you sign up for a series of personal training sessions with Samuel, so he can start to understand your current training techniques and critique them so you are on you way to where you want to be.
Training for strength makes your goals more tangible and concrete. If you aim to hit certain numbers and personal bests on your lifts and then over time you see yourself achieving, you’ll see your muscles respond. Just by choosing three exercises you want to see improvement on is a great place to start: I have listed some examples below:
- Upper body push exercise (push up)
- Upper body pull (chin up)
- Compound leg exercise (squat)
Lifts that work muscle at more than one joint are known as compound exercises. These exercises include deadlifts, squats, , rows, presses and chin-ups. Training the legs and glutes twice a week is key to muscle growth due to hormones being released. There is a scientific reason you should never skip leg day if you want to get those muscle gains!
Just as you want to be specific with your training goals and monitor your progress, you also want to keep track of your nutrition to make sure you are hitting your calorie count that I have given you, depending on your body type and lifestyle. Eat eat eat on your days off! Just because you’re not training that day, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be eating big. Your off days are when most of your muscle growth takes place ... so it makes sense to keep plenty of nutrients on hand for the body to make the most of to get those gains.
Samuel also offers a range of other services outside of personal training, like boxing coaching, diet plans, competition preparation, training programmes for muscle mass and online training. He can meet you for a consultation in the Central London area to understand your goals and aspirations. Please read his testimonials to see for yourself.
