12 Minute Workout for Muscle Mass HIT EVERY MUSCLE
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . This is what happens when you forget to filmthe intro before you do the workout, but it leads to an important point. What happenedin this workout you're going to see today is what left me in this position right nw.out of breath, barely able to talk. I'm doing it with just a barbell and a set of dumbbells. Guys, you can build muscle mass if you wantto trade in some of that workout length for intensity. Let me show you exactly how it'sdone. Alright, so first exercise we're going heavy. Mass building the exercise. Start withthe cornerstone heavy exercise like the deadlift.
The deadlift, for me, it's a leg exercisefirst and foremost. That first push and pull off the ground â€“ it'sa push â€“ I'm pushing with my legs and then of course I've got my low back, triple extension,my gluts, my traps, everything helping me to power this up. Pretty heavy here for me.An 8 rep max. I'm trying to get heavy weights done quickly. Now I come over here, now wehave to shift the focus. I'm shifting to a pushing exercise to giveall my pull muscles and my lower body a break. So we're going to a classic dumbbell inclinedbenchpress. So rom here I'm trying to go for about a 10 rep max here. Now, there isa metabolic carryover from the deadlift that
I just did. So it's going to make what's traditionally,maybe, might be your traditional 10 rep max; it might be a little bit less. Especially as you pile up round after round.So, here I'm working on my 10 rep max, I drop down, and I grab one dumbbell and I bringit over with me to do a really cool exercise. It's a hybrid of what we call a dumbbell shovelcurl. The shovel curl is done with both hands on the handle and it basically mimics a crossbodyhammer curl. So we're working forearms and biceps, brachialis,but then we've got to make it a little more difficult by going over the top with our press.In the press there's a lot of core strength
and stability through your abs, through yourobliques, to be able to maintain that position. I put myself on the ground, on my knees inorder to demand that my core do most of the stabilization. I don't have the benefit of my feet to dothat. Again, about an 8 rep max. It's just whatever you can do with the weight hat you'vechosen from the benchpress. Now, I'm at about 1:40 for that first grouping. I take advantageof some extra time here. I don't want to go into my deadlifts tired, okayé Again, it'smetabolic in terms of what happened from those other two exercises.
They were not really impacting the musclesI would use here on the deadlift.t so they've had a good amount of time to rest and recoverfrom that. I just want to make sure I have my breath so I'm not doing this in a fatiguedstate. So now I'm back to, in this case, the 405. Again, drive up. By this point, the workout,one round in and I'm kind of geared up and ready to go. Of course, I started with a littlebit of a warmup to get myself ready, but here I am now in the second works and I'mcranking now. Again, notice that first pull is just a straightleg movement. It's like a leg press up from the ground. Then once I get to the knees;boom! Shift right into the hips and make the
hips drive through and drive your whole bodyforward and pull the bar up. Now, back to the dumbbell bench again. So you can see,again, there's a few elements at play here. By stacking the exercises the way we're doingit we're actually allowing muscles to relax and rest without wasting time. Remember, it's 12 minutes. You don't havea lot of time here, but I'm trying to prove a point. You can definitely build muscle massdespite the fact that you may not have that much time. Sometimes there are more challenging.These are quot;density workoutsquot; we like to say. We're condensing what all is done here â€“ 5rounds â€“ which is basically 5 dead lifts
6 Muscle Gaining Mistakes SLOW OR NO GROWTH
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavalier, AthleanX . Today I'm dishing out the truth to the reasonswhy you might not be building muscle. I think I'm more qualified here to speak about thistopic than anybody because I lived that. I lived those problems, I've had those samestruggles. I couldn't build muscle. This was actually me. You guys have asked to see whatI looked like. This is me. I dug up some old footage the other day. I was looking throughsome old home movies. That's me, in high school. Painfully thin,unable to put on muscle. Things have changed for me though, because I've learned from alot of my mistakes. I think if I can talk
about some of those mistakes then you mightbe able to avoid them, too. The very first thing that I learned quickly,early on was that I was overtraining. Overtraining, I've talked about in many tutorials before. It'sa very real thing and a very real thing that sets up a roadblock for many guys that considerthemselves to be hard gainers, or just unable to add muscle. You see, we always think that more is better.We've been conditioned in this society to think that more is better. When it comes totraining, more is not better. More is not better. Only the right amount of the righttype of training is better. As soon as you
start going down that path you become evenmore likely to continue to go down that path because you try more and that doesn't work. So what do you doé You do even more, and thenyou do even more. Before you know it you're doing 55 sets for chest alone and your chestlooks like shit. So you want to try to follow and find the fastest way for you to cut backon what you're doing. If you're going to train â€“ this is a very important point, this tutorialencapsulates what we're all about here at AthleanX. If you're going to be a drug free, unassistedlifter then you'd better find ways to enhance
your recovery. Most of us are not able to.Without the assistance of drugs, we're unable to recover nearly fast enough to allow ourselvesto go back to that gym to do another 55 sets, and another 55 sets and we wind up hittinga wall. It's a very real wall. Don't let anybodytell you differently. There is a wall that you hit hormonally, neurologically. You can'ttrain. You can't even bring the effort that you need to produce the gains that you'retrying to see. That leads me to my next point. Guess what most people do wrong when they'retrying to build muscleé You may be shocked when is ay this; you'reundertraining. How can you be undertraining
and overtrainingé Because undertraining iswhen you show up at the gym thinking that just by walking into the gym and gracing everyonewith your presence, swiping your gym card, grabbing your protein shake and then headingover the leg extension machine that you're going to build muscle. If you head to a gym and your goal is to countreps, count to 12 over and over and over again I could save you a trip. You could have stayedhome and counted with Sesame Street as opposed to going to the gym and wasting gas if that'sall you're going to do. The numbers that you're doing in the gym, the reps that you're countingdon't mean shit. If you want to build muscle,
the only thing that ever matters is the intensitythat you're bringing to those numbers. If you're at 12 and it seems like you're tryingto lift a house on the 12th rep and you've got nobody around to help you, that's a goodeffort. If you're at 12 and you're doing this and you're looking around and you're puttingthe weights down and waiting, you go back and can do it again and you're looking forwardto the next set, you go down and you're looking forward to the next set just because it'ssooner for you to get out of the gym; you're not training with nearly the intensity thatyou need to make changes. So how do you manipulate the twoé How do youmanage the twoé It's actually kind of easy.

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
