This is my record of how I grow big muscles.
The image lists my most recent Chest routine during the past 8 weeks. Getting here was not easy nor was it intended to be. Here is only a waypoint to grow big muscles and getting in surf shape is necessary. In order to get where i want to go I need to be in shape for a ride and things like Tough Mudder and water parks are good motivators but there’s more to be done.
I am rejuvenated from growing big muscles in the Crucible and I have to put myself to good use. Not that I’m a slouch by any means but I must put myself to better use. I have learned to manage time better in order to adhere to the program. So I will be able keep at the program and more. Documenting things here is one of those more. Also, Tough Mudder is less than 100 days away. https://toughmudder.com/events/2017-virginia Training gets real from now.
This is a great introduction to a fast building regime of breathtaking proportion. If there was a need for one single program to make you strong and healthy in the shortest amount of time with the greatest gains it would be this. You can begin as I did with the wonderful BodyBuidling.com website and the Arnold programs followed by others or you can begin with Cory.
- November 2015 Arnold Blueprint to Mass 8 Weeks
- Arnold Blueprint to Cut 8 Weeks
- Jim Stoppani Shortcut to Shred 6 Weeks
- Jim Stoppani Shortcut to Size 12 Weeks
- January 2017 Cory Gregory Get Swole 16 Weeks
I started the Get Swole program after completing the others listed above. Get Swole requires dedication and preparation. The plan is simple. Work as hard as hell and eat right. If you take on a program such as this you need to supplement your protein. I found the Combat protein powder on Amazon for $20 less that the One Nutrition we had been using for over a year. The Combat powder tastes great too.
I don’t use any supplements to grow big muscles other than a daily vitamin and the Combat when needed. I also don’t do the program as written out. This 16 week program may take me longer than that to get through. On days where there is no ab routine you will want to add you own as a warm up.
How to warm up for weight lifting
I begin each workout with a 20 minute warm up consisting of numerous different exercises depending on the day and the workout plan. Jumping jacks, Jim rope, planks, back extensions, air squats, jump ups, etc. Then lots of ab exercises. I also enjoy the FitnessBlender.com videos, running and walking the dog. Soon the long runs will start.
So if you set yourself a goal to grow big muscles or something like tough mudder or just to be healthy by summer then you better start now. If putting on muscle and strengthening your resilience are part of the goal then consider weight training. You can start with Cory Gregory’s Get Swole program and grow big muscles. You will become strong and useful.
