How to Measure Progress

How to Measure Progress

asher j asked:

I’m 17, turning 18 and i’ve been underweight my entire life. When I do workout, I do look buff for a short while. I’m an ectomorph, slightly ripped, but with so little size it doesnt make a difference. I want to see gains on a weekly basis, is this possible?
Answer: An emphatic YES!!!
You may not see muscle gains every week, but what you will see if you’re persistent is strength gains. Endeavor to increase the weights you lift every workout. Part of the beauty of progressive resistance weight training is the ease by which you can adjust the poundages you lift. In most gyms, you can add as little as 2 1/2 pounds on each side of a barbell.
Here’s a great primer on how to train, eat, and sleep for maximum muscle gains – The Top Ten Muscle Building Tips.
Finally, here are some tips on building strength – 5 Ways to Get Stronger
If you follow the guidelines in these 3 articles, you will no doubt progress each week, but in every single workout!
Best of luck to you!!!

ANNOUNCING: The Hard Gainer's Manifesto is Live!

This will be quick — a SPECIAL REPORT I’ve been working on is finally (FINALLY!) finished and it’s called, surprisingly, the Hard Gainer’s Manifesto. Imagine that!

It’s brief, yet complete.

It’s also just $15 through Sunday. After that, the price goes up to $20. Big deal. Still cheaper than dinner and a movie!
