Yo, what's going on guysé Troy here with WeightGainNetwork .Tonight I am going to be watching my Oklahoma City Thunder win the series against the GoldenState Warriors. I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I am a huge basketballfan. My Oklahoma City Thunder are finally not choking in the playoffs. They're up threegames to one against the Golden State Warriors, who had the best record in NBA history thisseason. I'm calling it right now, they're going to win the championship, so hopefullyI don't curse them on YouTube right now, but they're going to steamroll the Cleveland Cavaliersin the championship. That is my bold prediction. I'm a diehard basketball fan. Literally theonly TV that I watch the entire year is the
NBA playoffs, so I am pumped to watch themtake home the Western Conference tonight. I'm also really excited because I just boughtthat yacht right over there. I don't know if you guys know this, but I make millionsof dollars making these YouTube tutorials for you guys, so thank you all for watching andhelping me realize my dreams. I'm going to actually start filming tutorials from that yacht.I think we're setting sail for France and probably Australia after that, so I'm goingto go on a really cool world tour, so I invite you guys in in my life. That is the officialWeight Gain Network yacht right over there. Today, what I want to dive into are ectomorphworkout tips. As you guys might know a quote
unquote ectomorph is a naturally skinny guy.I myself, way back in the day, was like 80 pounds. Actually a little more than that.One time I was 80 pounds, but I outgrew that and as I was a freshman and sophomore in highschool I was about 130 pounds, now I'm like 195 ï¿½ 200. I've had to try every singlelittle trick in the book. These workout tips to increase muscle and increase strength,they are things that I've actually implemented into my life in the last few months. I kindof hit a plateau and I really had to assess what I'm doing with my workouts, what I'mdoing with my nutrition and how I can overcome that plateau. I've made some really big changesto my training just in the last couple weeks.
I wanted to share them with you guys becauseif you guys are at a plateau, you're trying to increase your strength, you're trying tobuild more muscle mass, I think these are going to be really powerful. My first workouttip is my new workout split that I'm on right now. I was doing a bunch of different workoutsplits. I know I've had a lot of different tutorials talking about these workout splits.I did the insane squat and biceps challenge, where I was hitting my squats, hitting mybiceps every single day for 30 straight days. I had a little bit of growth. I've definitelyimproved my squat a ton. My arms are definitely leaner, but I was trying to think about whatmy most developed muscle group was and what
my least developed muscle group was. I wouldsay my traps, my chest and my shoulders are way ahead of all the other parts of my body.How I've been training them for the last couple of years is I just hit them really hard oneto two times a week. The muscle groups I think are the least developed, I think I've actuallybeen training the most. Just studying what a lot of fitness models do and a lot of theguys with the best physique in the world do, I decided to completely change out my workoutregimen. What I'm doing especially for my biceps and my triceps to try to jack up myarms is I'm only allowed to work them out one time per week, but during this one workoutI have to do 40 sets, so I literally script
out like an insane workout for biceps andtriceps and then the entire workout, I don't deadlift before, I don't do squats, I don'tdo benchpress, I don't do any other activity that's going to drain me physically. I focusall my energy and intensity on that one muscle group. I literally did like a 43set bicepworkout last week Monday and then I did it this week Monday and my biceps are more sorethan they've been in over two years, so just putting more overload, more intensity, moretraining volume and all of these different exercises that go into a 42set bicep workout,I feel like I'm going to make more progress on my arms over the next few months than Iprobably have in the last year to year and
How to Train with Light Weights to Gain Muscle Mass Prozis TV
Hey, guys, welcome back to our workout show. I'm Rob Riches, you're watching ProzisTV. And on today's show, I'm going to address a question that popped outfrom one of the last week's tutorials, and that was: quot;Hey, Rob, I see you at all of these different gyms, in and around LA, with all of their different equipment and the heavy weights. I typically work out at home or in a small gym, and the heaviest weights I have are 20 lbs. dumbbells.
How can I get a good arm work and make it effective with just this weightéquot; That's a great question, and to be fair, yes, we do visit some of the best gyms in America. In fact, in the world. So I'm using a lot of different equipment and today we're going to break it down and show you two fantastic bicep exercises,
and make it effective with even a light weight. So, just check out these two exercises and pay close attention to my form, my technique, and the different methods I use that can be used for any body part, using a lighter weight. A few points about this exercise. First thing is, I've got the bench set at an incline.
This means that I'm leaning back, there's more tension on the bicep, so I don't need as heavy weight, there's more tension increasing the intensity of this exercise. So even with 20 lbs. dumbbells, you can see, I'm starting off with my palms outwards, so I have this 180Âº rotation.
As I curl up, squeezing, so a slower tempo, about 3 seconds up. Be one, two, three. I'm going to hold that squeeze for about 2 seconds. One, two.
Slowly control back down, and rotate my palms back out. Adding this dynamic into the exercise, again, increases the intensity, the work done by the bicep and also my forearm muscles. So, 10 or 12 reps on here, even with 20 lbs., makes it a challenging exercise.
5 Reasons You NEED to LIFT LIGHT Weights Important
The question is not, Do you even lifté Itshould be, Do you ever lift lighté If your answer to that is no, I'm going toshow you 5 reasons why today you might want to start thinking about it. What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Have I lost my mindé Now, I want you guyslifting lighté We talked about 5 reasons you should be lifting heavy. If you haven't seen that tutorial, you got towatch it, and I'll link it right over here. But lifting light, guess whaté It's just asimportant. See, today, we're going to define
5 reasons why you should be lifting light. And I thought, let me start off by tellingyou what light really is. I'm thinking light meaning 50 reps or more, 20 reps, 25 reps. But here's the key. It doesn't matter howlight you're going. You better be taking it to failure. You guys know that I believe in taking yoursets to failure. You have to create overload. You can certainly create a unique type ofoverload when you are lifting your reps to failure even if it's in a 25rep range.
So, that said, let's take a look at 5 reasonswhy light lifting is definitely part of the equation. Ok. Number 1. You can't confuse your fibers. People that think that training and higherrep ranges is going to only work your type 1 fibers, you have to get a better understandingof your fibers. Guys, type 1 fibers are mostly used for ourlong duration musclefiring activities, like walking, again, calves for walking. You need to be able to walk and fire all daylong. If there is a threshold at which you
fatigue and basically die out, that's moreof a type 2 A fiber, one we call our type 2 oxidated fibers. So you have to understand that those type2 fibers we know are conducive to muscle growth. You can definitely induce muscle growth bytraining type 2 A fibers. And you do that by taking higher reps, 15, 20, 25, to failure. Again, type 1 fibers mostly, longer distance,long bike riding, long running, walking activities where you have to sustain that activity fora long period of time. We're not talking about the same ones. So,is there some hypertrophy benefits as well
to training high fibersé Yes, absolutely. Number 2. Two Words. Nut Check. If you arenew to high rep training, this is going to be a nut check for you. What do I mean by thaté Nut check, gut check,whatever term you prefer, you're going to have to dig deep and learn how to become moreresistant to fatigue. The good thing about that, guys, is the moreyou train in these higher rep ranges and take yourself to failure, like I said in the beginning, the more you're going to be able to teachyour muscles how to become more resilient
to fatigue. Even when you go into your lower rep ranges,you're going to have if nothing else a mental toughness to stick it out for that 1 or 2or 3 extra gutwrenching reps that, as I say all the time, those are the onesthat really matter when it comes to making a change in your physique. Number 3 reason for you to start lifting somelighter weights is it's time to find out who's lifting who. Are you lifting the weightsé Or are the weightslifting youé
