Is weight lifting the best way to gain muscles?




The best way to gain muscle is through weight lifting! If you want to truly gain muscle you need to train heavy, if you are doing 8-12 reps, scale down your reps to 4-6 and increase your weights. The kind of muscle fibers that yield the greatest power are also those that grow the most. The only way to stimulate growth is weight lifting within the power zone which is 3-6 reps per set. Heavier weights equal bigger muscles! In the gym you’re not supposed to succeed every set. If your muscles can handle the whole set your body thinks that it managed the set therefore there is no need to improve and recruit new muscle mass. You asked your body for something and it delivered. Now, if you ask for more and you’re forcing your body to adapt. The only way for you body to conform and survive your hard training is to get stronger, which means more muscle mass!
