Most if not all weight training routines you see in magazines and on the internet are presented as the latest and greatest. They all seem to have some “Secret technique” to unlocking your muscle building success. They seem like they should work. Look at the huge guy in the picture next to the routine. Its obvious he works out, and if he uses this routine you should look just like him right? Probably not. You see 99 out of 100 fitness models you see touting these routines are, you guessed it, on steroids. We aren’t being haters, its just the way it is. If you got paid the kind of money these guys do you might use anything to gain the edge. These guys could do bare bar lifting with 100 reps each and look huge. In fact, that is exactly what a lot of them do. They do low weight, high repetition exercises to stimulate every inch of there muscles. This is great if your on steroids because your recovery time and protein synthesis are so far off the charts your muscles have no choice but to grow. To put it another way, lets look at a study done on natural vs steroid users. The Full study can be seen here.
This 10 week study took a group of 43 men between the ages of 19 and 40. They all had normal bodyweight and had some experience weight training. They broke them up into 4 groups.
Group 1 – No weight training and no steroids
Group 2 – No weight training but received 600mg of testosterone enanthate every week
Group 3 – Weight training with no steroids
Group 4 – Weight training but received 600mg of testosterone enanthate every week
All of their diets were the same according to each person’s body weight. The 2 groups who were weight training (groups 3 and 4) followed the same supervised workouts each week.
Group 1 (no weight training no steroids) experienced no significant changes.
Group 2 (no weight training with steroids) built 7 pounds of muscle. That’s right. The group receiving steroids and not working out at all gained 7 pounds of muscle.
Group 3 (weight training and no steroids) built about 4 pounds of muscle.
Group 4 (weight training with steroids) built about 13 pounds of muscle.
What Does This Study Show Us?
Frankly, the muscle building abilities of steroids is nothing short of miraculous. Even using identical weight training routines and diets, the guys who were also receiving steroids gained over 3x as much muscle as the natural guys in the same period of time. The average was 13lbs gained to just 4lbs gained.
What we found most amazing was the guys who didn’t work out at all gained more muscle than the guys who were weight training regularly! This clearly shows the power of anabolic steroids and why the routines in muscle magazines simply won’t work if you are natural.
So what do you do?
Don’t be discouraged. There are ways to naturally put on slabs of muscle. They are relatively simple and work quickly if you stick with them. There are only 3 rules
I know what your thinking. There is no way it is this simple. We are here to tell you that if you follow these simple rules you will make more gains than you ever have.
By lifting heavy you put your body under a huge amount of stress. This stress floods your blood stream with HGH (human growth hormone) and testosterone. This makes all other facets of your workout and frankly your life better. It was a long standing belief that you needed high repetitions to build significant muscle. New scientific studies now show this simply isn’t the case. Here is what you need to do in order to build an Olympus god like physique.
Wide and thick back
Broad cut shoulders
Huge defined chest
Drop dead abs (learn more about abs)
Massive and cut legs
It’s that simple.
