How to Build Stubborn Muscle

🔹 If you recently started training for less than a year, you don’t have any  lagging muscle-groups yet, your entire body is  adapting to the stimulus of working out and building muscle. With that said, if you’ve been training for some time time and you are now starting to notice that a certain muscle is lagging behind, you will need to implement some specialized techniques. Here are 4 things I’d recommend if your goal is to bring up a lagging muscle.


Tip Number 1: Increase Training Frequency

🔹 If you’re currently training a muscle-group once per week, I’d recommend that you  increase your training to twice per week. This is a way to maximize training-induced protein synthesis and also increases your  total volume.

Tip Number 2: Prioritize

🔹 If you’re trying to build bigger biceps, then avoid from leaving them for the end of your workout when you’re already taxed.  Start prioritizing that muscle-group by putting it first. 

Tip Number 3: Progressive Overload

🔹 Progressive overload is the main pathway of building muscle. And unless we’re gradually increasing the amount of work we do, no matter how hard we train, we’ll never grow. Get back to the basics – if you want to build your chest, you’ve got to bench press more weight or do more reps. 

Tip Number 4: Eat Enough to Grow

No matter how solid your training is… if you’re not providing your body with  the necessary nutrients to grow, you’ll never build any  muscle mass. It’s synonymous to building a house without enough bricks – it doesn’t matter how many workers are present if they don’t have the necessary tools for the job that house will not be constructed.
