Once you’ve made the decision and commitment to start the appropriate exercise regime for building muscle mass, you actually have a great chance of succeeding. While the health benefits of maintaining a good physical training routine are essentially what you should be aiming for, the truth is many people are motivated more by how their training affects their appearance rather than how it makes them feel. The good news is that – no matter the motivating factor – once you’ve managed to build and chisel out your ideal body, the associated health benefits will kick in as an inevitable part of the process. You will feel as great as you look. Whatever body type you have and whatever your reasons for seeking to gain muscle mass, this goal is considerably more achievable than most other health-and-fitness goals. For example, it’s much easier to build muscle mass than it would be to shed pounds of fat, or to build up the stamina required to run a marathon or even compete in team sports like football or basketball. The key to building muscle mass is all about being armed with the right information and going about your muscle-building regimen with the right approach. This book is designed to provide you with exactly what you need to feed your muscles to stimulate growth and what effective exercises you need to include in your routine to produce results quickly.
