    What you are describing in point no 3 is a split routine. Split routines are good for advanced lifters who have a foundation in training. They are also good for training lagging body parts. However for beginners, a full body workout will be the best for them in most cases.

    Some good solid tips Mun. I’d also add the tip “take a week off every 8 to 10 weeks”. I find that if I do not have a week off I tend to get stuck lifting the same weights and can’t push myself to the next level. Taking a week off every 8 to 10 weeks allows me to come back fresh with renewed energy levels and push my lifting to the next stage.

    For those who really don’t like the idea of taking a week off, it it does not have to be a week where you just stop doing exercise. Try giving an alternative exercise such as cycling, swimming or jogging a try. Just make sure you give your muscles a week off the heavy weights and they will thank you for it.

    Awesome article.

    You make it easy and fluff free.

    Too many people over-think the whole muscle building thing and end up giving up because they think it’s too hard or impossible.

    Not true.

    I think my favorite tip was #1 and #9. Too many people use isolation exercises and in today’s society everyone and their brother is running on an empty tank. No one realizes just how important sleep is!

    Thanks for the useful post. Keep it up.

    Why avoiding coffee?

    Coffee has been known to raise insulin levels in the body…I say one cup in the morning should be ok though!

    Muscle building cannot happen overnight and it requires a combination of strenuous physical effort and a proper diet to get the desired results. It needs to be remembered that one cannot gain muscle without gaining some fat as well.

    It’s amazing what compound exercises can do for your body. I love it when people complain about slow gains when they aren’t even squatting or dead lifting regularly. It makes me laugh because I know how much they are missing out but they don’t care.
