Muscle Building Workout - A good hard workout to build muscle, not for the beginner

Muscle Building Workout

If you're trying to gain muscle and not having any luck, follow this muscle building workout for some help packing on lean body mass.

The key to muscle building and not getting fat is to hit the weights hard and consume plenty of lean protein.

Don't under eat or try to diet either, you'll end up losing muscle or starving yourself to death. You'll need to get some quality calories down the hatch each day to make a progress.

If you're working out at home make sure you use a heavy duty weight bench when lifting heavy weights. Check out this Ironmaster Super Bench Review for more information on the bench I'm currently using (sweet)...
