This will sound to simple at first. Form. All the time solution for rapid improvement of our results is in the front of our face at least during the time we spend in the gym.
The way how perceive the meaning of form can make HUGE difference. Your results depend on that.
Here are the reasons - give me few minutes and I will give you "secret key" to packing-on the most thick, rock-hard muscle possible in the shortest period of time.
As you know "form" means using technique during an exercise to effectively stimulate the muscle for growth. First thing you should understand here that it does not mean rigid, deliberate exercise execution. It is overloading the targeted muscle group that stimulates maximum growth-not the strict execution of exercises! So many textbooks, personal trainers, and those "know-it-alls" in your gym always cram the importance of strict form down your throat.
But, let me ask you this. What is your real objective? What do you want to achieve with satisfying those guys? We should all be focused on what produces results-not just the methods that are supposed to get you those results. The safest advice you can get is "always use strict form". But I'm telling you this will not maximize your potential to build the most muscle in the shortest period of time.
Let's say that you were a runner striving to be your very best and I was your doctor. You came to me complaining that your knees hurt when you ran. The safest, most-widely accepted recommendation I could give you would be to stop running for awhile, wouldn't it?
How could I go wrong with that advice? I couldn't. But would you be able to maximize your running potential in the shortest period of time? Who knows for sure? You aren't even trying to get the most out of what ability you do have.
We can all learn a lot from guys on the top. Be sure that all successful, dedicated, and hardest working bodybuilders in the world use "less-than-perfect" form.
Those incredible muscle machines have gone beyond conventional thinking and have discovered that overloading the targeted muscle group stimulates maximum growth-not strict form.
You have to find the right balance between heavy, challenging, muscle-taxing weight and using exercise execution and technique that's good enough to hit the targeted muscle group. This may take some time and practice-but you won't find that right balance until you make it your goal to do so.
Perfect balance is needed-this is what makes us grow fast. You see, I'm never satisfied. I'm not satisfied if I'm lifting incredible weight, but am overly sloppy while doing so. And, I certainly never go after handling lighter weight just because I used perfect, textbook form that everyone would approve of.
Again, form does not mean rigid exercise execution. In fact, being too rigid while striving to lift heavier weight can overly restrict the body's natural movement-and is more likely to cause injury than somewhat loose or more forgiving form. Of course, you don't want to hurt yourself using form that's too sloppy or careless. But where's that "perfect balance"? You'll have to experiment to find it.
Constantly challenging yourself to go after lifting the heavier weight takes courage and work. But stepping up to the challenge of aggressively tackling heavier weight will help you pack-on the highest quality muscle in the shortest period of time.
Check yourself. Make sure that you aren't rationalizing the fact that you're not striving to train heavier because of fear. Having proven muscle building system at hand may be off great help. Before I got to it I suffered so much to gain muscle mass. I freaked out from all that useless, weak result giving crap around. Fortunately I packed 28lbs of lean muscle mass in first 8 month when I found this one. You can imagine chilled off a bit.
It's much easier to play it safe and overemphasize the importance of strict form so that you don't have to face the fear that every one of us face every time we step in the gym.
Is strict form slowing your muscle gains? Focus on what produces results and find the right balance between heavy, challenging, muscle-taxing weight and using exercise execution and technique that's good enough to hit the targeted muscle group.
