The Secrets of Building a Coveted Physique

Built like Hercules.

You Want That Greek-like Physique Huh?

OK, so what I am about to reveal is not an actual secret, however many do not understand the muscle building process. Hence, to them it is still a secret.

In my experience many trainees fail at something that is fairly simple because they get lost in all of the details.

Keep these tips in mind, maintain a decent level of sanity and your muscle building quest will be shortened greatly.

Recovery Is Key

Do not underestimate the importance of your rest days and bed time. You only grow when you are not training, sitting on your can and sleeping. I always emphasize a solid 3 to 4 rest days per week.
