Let me start with the basics. If you want to build muscle size and mass…YOU HAVE TO GET STRONGER! Making strength gains as a newbie lifter is easy.

BUT…Doing this after a year or so of lifting experience can be damn hard! Unless you use tactics like this! Believe me…I know what it’s like to struggle to add muscle to my frame. I graduated high school at 145 lbs.

From 145 lbs to 180 lbs using tactics like this! Strength precedes size. Get stronger and you will grow. BUT… Continuing to get stronger can be the tricky part. UNLESS… You train smart and have a plan backed in science.

P.S. Want to hear something funny? With a 5 foot tall 100lb mother and 5’9″ 160lb father, I thought I had almost maxed out my gains when I was 145lbs. Well, 35lbs later, I can tell you that I was flat out wrong. The best part? I added 10 of these in the last 2 years (with over 20 years training experience!) It all comes down to HOW you train. Don’t let your genetics dissuade you from a dedication to smart, progressive training!
