Introduction To - The Holy Trinity Of Muscle Building
Say it with us: Squats, Deadlifts and Benchpress. This, ladies and gentleman is known as the holy trinity of muscle building. If you are drug free and wanting to build any decent size of muscle you have to get these exercises into your workout routine. How you do this is up to you.
Why Is The Holy Trinity Of Muscle Building So Important?
Well here at BATR our focus is to see how manipulating certain hormones can result in new muscle growth. We are mainly concerned with how outside agents like anabolic steroids can help what is already in the body achieve greater muscle mass. However if there is a way to grow new muscle in a natural way, (without anabolic steroids) we are all ears. The holy trinity of muscle building will get this done. How so?
HGH And Testosterone
There are two important hormones when it comes to staying lean and growing muscle namely; Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Testosterone. Most workout plans with weights will invoke these two powerful hormones, however, like us you will want to know what exercises do it best.
Why The Holy Trinity Of Muscle Building Status For The Squats, Deadlifts And BenchPress?
These three exercise deserve celestial status because they demand the biggest reaction from the body and call upon all of the body's HGH and Testosterone reserves to perform efficiently. These exercises as individual exercises are called compound exercises. The reason being that one muscle literally compounds on one another.
The Most Bang For Your Buck
There are many schools of thought of how to get the compounds to really work for you. The great bodybuilder, ‘Tom Platz’ was famous for his 20 rep scheme on the squats. However we believe he is the exception, rather than the rule. That is not to say don’t try it, feel free to experiment with your set and rep ranges, however for high rep schemes most of us mortals out there will just get sore and fatigued.
What Is A Good Rule To Follow?
That being said, what would be a good rule to follow? Well have you seen a skinny man squat or deadlift say five hundred pounds? No, neither have we. You have to lift big, to get big. Work your way up to ninety percent of your one rep max (to avoid injury) and progress from there.
The Holy Trinity Of Muscle Building Can Throw Up Many Bizarre Headlines
If you look around the web and magazines you will see bizarre headlines like, ‘you want bigger arms – squat!’
What they mean is, if you really want bigger arms or any body part bigger for that matter, you start with your compound of your choice then you use the HGH spike from the compound exercise for your isolation exercise like dumbbell curls. The thinking behind it is you get your whole body bigger with the compound and the muscle group of your choice is then shaped with the isolation.
Take these secrets from the holy trinity of muscle building and see what you can do. If this leads to you walking about big and ripped without the use of anabolic steroids be sure to, ‘pay it forward'.
