Build Muscle Faster!
Here’s an article from AskMen about a workout plan for men who want to spend more time in the gym and build some muscle mass.
We recently featured an article on a time saving three-day routine perfectly designed for the average young professional male.
The article triggered another great flock of e-mail from people that can afford a little more time at the gym and achieve greater results. For someone who wants to achieve quicker results (whether it’s for mass or general fitness) and who is willing to spend more time at the gym, the perfect regimen is a 5-day routine.
The 5-day routine provides you with enough time to give each muscle group a rest and will also allow you the flexibility to work each muscle group to its full potential. Contrary to the 3-day routine, which is designed for people who want to sustain their current physiques, the 5-day routine can be used for maintenance or to build mass.
A 5-day routine will build mass effectively since it allows each muscle group to be trained to its maximum potential every week. You’ll have the time to focus your efforts on each muscle by performing an extra 3 to 5 sets and by packing on the weights; a luxury you don’t get with the 3-day routine.
As mentioned in the 3-day routine article, training programs are usually designed on a 7-day cycle corresponding to the 7 days of the week. I recommend you take at least one day off during the week and sacrifice an hour during the weekend to achieve better results. If you only have access to the gym on weekdays, then do your cardio and abdominal workout on weekends instead.
These are some great ideas about how to get some muscle mass in the gym. Use these in a workout plan to develop strength and muscle more quickly. Don’t quit, just do it!
