Pack on hard, quality, lean muscle
How do famous actors seemingly build muscle and lose weight so fast? What do we celebrity personal trainers know that others don’t?
Specific. Optimized. Training.
New muscle is formed when your existing muscles are overloaded and pushed beyond it’s normal capacity. The body has to adapt to meet the new stress and therefore reacts by producing more muscle. The take away from this is that unless you are an absolute beginner, body weight exercises will not be enough on there own to build new muscle, at least not in an effective and time efficient way.
It also means that workouts with a heavy focus on circuit training will be more geared to fat loss and not the best way to create and increase new muscle fibres. However this doesn’t necessarily mean that you must lift heavy weights. Your muscles don’t know how much weight you’ve picked up, they only feel the internal tension created as result of you contracting that muscle to complete the exercises.
"I've worked with 10+ trainers and seen ok results, but working with Ben was a whole other level. He taught me that to gain muscle you just have to have the right formula"
In my experience, the weight should be the last thing we increase. This is why technique and neuro-muscular connection are so vital when it comes to wanting to gain muscle fast. By manipulating your body’s leverage and using different tools at our disposal like mechanical advantage we can isolate certain muscles for maximum growth.
What does all this mean for you?
It means that if you want increase your mass mass, you’ve had trouble in the past getting your muscles to grow, or you’re what the industry call a ‘hard gainer' I can help you get that Adonis physique.
It just takes commitment, specificity and an individualized scientific approach.
