  • Frequently Asked Questions About Muscle Building Part 2

    Sometimes, you just need quick answers without long boring explanations. Some questions don’t even need long boring scientific answers, it just confuses people more. So I’m going to answer the most commonly asked questions regarding muscle building with quick, informative answers. Let’s go.

    Are machines better at building muscle than free weights?
    No. Free weights will always be better than machines because they engage more mus-cles than machines. Machines are good if you just need to focus on a certain muscle and/or you have an injury that does not allow you to lift free weights. Free weights con-tract many different muscles to stabilize your body in order to allow you to execute a cer-tain lift.

    Can I eat whatever I want when bulking?
    Of course you can, if you don’t mind putting on a lot of extra fat along with that muscle and then diet for a long, long time until you have lost all that fat and probably also all the muscle that you worked really hard for.
    The smart choice would be to eat only 500-1000 calories above maintenance, this will allow you to build muscle with minimal fat gain. A little fat gain is unavoidable while bulk-ing.

    Should I only lift heavy weights with low reps?
    No. For maximum muscle growth, you should always perform a variety of different weights and rep ranges. This allows you to engage all of your muscles (fast twitch and slow twitch) which allows for greater overall growth. You should, however, always be pro-gressing with weights. For your major lifts such as deadlifts, squats, bench presses, I would suggest lifting heavy (6-8 reps) and for the smaller ones such as bicep curls, tricep pushdowns, etc, I would go up to 10-12 reps per set.

    Is a pump important for building muscle?
    No. It is not necessary to get a pump to ensure muscle growth. There could be a number of reasons to not get a pump (low carb, low water, etc) but that doesn’t mean that you ha-ven’t given your body enough stimulation to grow. As long as you have been working out hard and progressing, you can be sure that you are growing, although a pump does help give a little motivational boost!

    The opposite, however, is also true, just because you have a pump doesn’t mean that you are definitely growing muscle. You can carb up and then do a couple lightweight, high reps of bicep curls and you will surely have a pump but that doesn’t mean that you’ve done any decent amount of damage to warrant muscle growth.
