How to Keep Building Massive Muscle
with All the New Trends

By: Derek Manuel

Even though building muscle mass is a very simple concept, I don't find it surprising how so many people can get confused, since we live in a society that promotes bigger, better, newer, and faster. However, as the famous basketball coach Pat Riley once said, "The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing."

What I love best about workouts for muscle mass and gaining weight is that no matter what great salesman comes up with a new and improved workout gym, exercise, or supplement, there is nothing better to build a mass of muscle then the same basic exercises men did way back in the 50's.

This is because in order to build bigger muscle mass, all you need to do is apply the basic laws of muscle growth, work hard, stay persistent, and always think progress. Nothing new or fancy needed. It doesn't matter what supplement or new workout equipment comes out, if you don't include hard work on at least a couple of the most basic exercises then you shouldn't expect much muscle growth.

If you think that you need some kind of degree in fitness training to keep up with all the new trends, you don't; just working hard and keeping it simple on the most basic exercises is all you need to know. Basic exercises such as squats, bench presses, pull-ups, shoulder presses, and bicep curls are the benchmark for maximum muscle mass. You don't have to complicate these exercises by doing a bunch of "advanced" training techniques, stick to barbells and dumbbells for the best results.

Whether you just started or you are an advanced lifter, you can always benefit the best by workout hard on the most basic exercises. There is no better and sure way to boost your strength and muscle mass then the basic exercises performed a few times a week.

One thing to always keep in mind is to measure your progress by either increasing the weight or increasing your reps, so don't just judge your workouts by how great of a "pump" you get." I can wager that anybody, beginner or advanced could build a mass of muscle with a just few compound exercises done a few times a week with the intent on just progressively increasing your strength will build more muscle consistently then any new fancy equipment or "advanced" exercise can achieve.

Going back to the most basic compound exercises will always get you much better results then any "new and improved" exercise, even if you're not going with the trends. So as technology continues to improve at the speed of thought, always remember the quote, "Methods are many, principles are few, methods may change, principles never do!"!
