Anyone that’s ever had a gym membership knows who I’m talking about. These jocks are the guys you see on the way into the gym and on the way out, the ones that seem to be there 24/7. Most of the time you see them just hanging out, talking about working out and sharing “secrets” with each other. They are the ones always telling others to “do this exercise” and “try using this grip” and “do this many reps”… These guys have elaborate workout routines to build muscle that are so complicated and intricate that they seem to be based more on astrology than they are actual human biology.
But I’m going to let you in on a secret: most of these guys haven’t the slightest clue about what they’re talking about. The truth is that most these guys were always big and muscular and they spend most they’re lives hanging out in the gym so of course they’re going to look that way. If you’re like me you simply don’t have the time to spend a few hours in the gym each day. Luckily, there are workout routines to build muscle that are simple and only require a couple hours a week to pack on serious muscle.
An effective workout routine to build muscle is based on human biology and science. I don’t know about you but the jocks in my gym don’t look scientists. I don’t know actually know for sure though, I’ve been too busy getting in gym, hitting the weights, putting on muscle and going home to my new girlfriend to actually stop and find out.
Good workout routines to build muscle aren’t overly complicated and they make use of compound exercises. Compound exercises are the ones that make use of multiple muscle groups and are the most effective at stimulating muscle growth. If you want to get big arms (who doesn’t want big arms?) you can do bicep curls all day but it’s not going to get you very far. You’ll have much better results just doing a set or two of curls after you’ve done a compound exercise like the bench press. But that’s not something you’ll hear in the gym. They want you to think that getting big and muscular is impossibly hard, but it’s really not.
Packing on serious muscle is easy if you have the right workout routine to build muscle. But like I said, that’s not something the jocks in the gym will tell you.
