Achieve Maximal Muscle Gains
#1 Muscle Building Mistake And How To Solve it For More Muscle Mass
In an effort to get big and strong in the gym I am sure you pile on the weight. At times it may even be too much, and your form breaks down. I know I've been there.
Packing on the weight is not the answer. Profesional bodybuilder Ben Pakulski likes to use lighter weights in his workout. He goes over some of his methods in the MI40 Mass Intentions review. There are even a couple of informative videos he put together.
But, before anything you have to first decide what your goal is. It may sound stupid because you are thinking you want to get huge and ripped, but take a second and think about what you want. Do you want to be strong, build muscle, or looked ripped.
If you're thinking that all you want to do is build muscle, then you have come to the right place, so listen close.
The most important factor you need to worry about when it comes to your quest to build muscle, is TENSION.
If you have been looking for a way to build muscle I am sure you have heard about the mind-muscle connection. That is when you’ve got to really “squeeze” a muscle to make it grow. I have never done it, it is a difficult concept to figure out and put into action. Those of us that “get” what it means, still really have a difficult time putting it to action.
With a slight twist you can easily put this concept into practice. When you apply it you it is posible to build muscle fast, some say even twice as fast.
How to Apply Muscle Tension
Muscles only know tension. They don't have any idea how much weight you're lifting, none. Your muscles only know how the amount of tension or torque that goes through them.
There is a way to increase muscular tension with less weight to get results 2x as fast and in half the time.
Apply this method and have total control of exactly how much tension or torque that goes through your muscle at any set or rep in your workout.
You have complete control over how hard you squeeze, how long you work, and most importantly EXACTLY where you squeeze and contract.
You can selectively work any muscle, great for lagging body parts.
I am sure you have been there before. You have just finished your bench workout and, zero pump. Sure you could feel it in your delts or triceps but it was a chest workout you were looking to get. Well not anymore.
You're about to discover a new revolutionary muscle building approach called mass tension.
The best way to describe it...
“Intention is the CONSCIOUS INTENT to create TENSION in the muscle”
Sure, it may sound slightly gimmicky, but the fact of the matter is that this is without question the best way to ensure you maintain maximum tension in the muscle you're targeting.
The number one most highly correlated factor with building muscle is time under tension. Simply put, the longer you keep tension on your targeted muscle, the more control you have over the rate at which that muscle grows.
You can do a bench press all day long, but if you don't have focused attention on the pectoral muscles, you're simply not going to see the growth and returns you're looking for.
I'm sure you're wondering why it is that some people can build a massive chest through bench pressing while others cant. That's because some peoples “genetics” allow them to thoughtlessly keep a greater amount of tension throughout their chest muscles
When you apply the mass intention technique, you too will be able to easily target any muscle you want.
Mass Intention Technique
Mass intention can be applied to any exercise. In the video below mass intentions applied to the lat pulldown to help add width to your back.
An easy example to demonstrate the principles of intention is to use the bench press.
- Grab the bar just like you would any other bench press day.
- Be sure to hold firmly.
- Without letting your hands move from that position, “shove” them in, toward each other.
- You should feel your chest contract.
- Everything else remains the same.
Now imagine doing this exact thing through the full range of motion. WOW! You just created continuous tension in the EXACT muscle you wanted to! Pretty cool right!
