Watch this. Dexter Jackson is talking about how he builds muscle or “gets swole” with light weights.
I don’t agree with everything he says here, but he does a good job debunking the dumb idea that you need heavy weights, a low rep range, and only compound movements to build muscle. You’ll actually build little muscle and end up injuring yourself that way.
I debunked the 5 x 5 workout in relation to making size gains here, if you want to know the scientific reasons why that workout cannot produce good size gains.
The best appoach, backed by science, is the middle ground of 8-12 reps per set as recommended in my free THT Training. Click here to download THT right now.
Also read my ‘Feel The Muscle Not The Weight’ for more on this concept.
P.S. I know that putting together a diet for mass gains or getting shredded abs can be a pain in the butt, especially if you are new to this – that’s why I offer a service where I will do all the tough ground work for you.
You probably don’t know how many calories you need, or how many grams of protein, carbs or fat you need (based on your personal stats)…BUT I DO. Then I can take these numbers and create an exact meal plan for you to hit those numbers spot on! You’ll know what foods to eat and even when to eat them. All you have to do…is do it. No thinking involved. If you’d like me to take care of this for you, see the Get Me Shredded option on my Coaching Page here.
