Here is a summary of the points covered in this podcast:
(1) SEEING GAINS IN 2 WEEKS
If you train correctly (as per free THT Training guidelines), you should be able to notice things changing in the mirror within 2 weeks. Other people will see gains within 4-6 weeks.
(2) USE THE MIRROR…NOT THE SCALES
This is the huge mistake many people make. Gains may not show up on the scale, but you will see them in the mirror and by how your clothes fit.
(3) WHY NOT USE SCALES?
You gain so little muscle per week (in terms of actual weight) that you probably won’t see it show up on the bathroom scales. Let’s say you had an amazing result of gaining 1/2 inch on your arms (see my Arms Blast workout). Would you really even see that show up on the scales?
Add to this the fat that you may have lost fat, you may have less water stored in your body, or less “waste matter”. This can make your weight fluctuate up and down by a few pounds. So you may have gained muscle, but your overall body weight might decrease! Don’t go by those scales when on a gain cycle.
(4) SHOOT FOR 12lbs MUSCLE PER YEAR
The bodybuilding orthodoxy tells the natural lifter to expect a max of 3-5lbs muscle per year. That’s measly. Would you be motivated to do all that training for 3lbs of muscle in a year? If you do everything right, you could gain up to 12lbs in a year (those with good genetics can gain more).
But let’s break that down. 12lbs/year = 1lb per month. 1lb per month = 1/4lb per week.
So even with this phenomenal result, you would only be adding 1/4 lb per week. Would you even see that on the scales, given everything I said in point 3 above? Even at the end of the month, you may not see it on the scales because of those fluctuating factors.
So STOP going by the scales. Use the mirror (and perhaps measurements). Over the long term, yes your weight should increase, but that’s the long term.
(5) NEW FORUMS AND MONTH OF MASS CHALLENGES
At the end of the podcast I remind you that on February 1st 2017 (8 days from today) on the new MuscleHack community forum (link coming soon), I will be running a free 4-wk muscle challenge called a ‘Month of Mass’. Using free THT Training, we will collectively track our training progress and muscle gains over 4 weeks. And we’ll keep doing Month of Mass challenges throughout 2017. It’s going to be awesome…and very motivating! I’ll let you all know when it’s ready to launch!
