There are no muscle gaining secrets. That has to be anything but music to the ears of readers who are hell bent on learning some inside information to making gains faster than everyone around them. It just doesn’t happen. You have to lift and eat correctly to grow. There are no shortcuts. But there is some good news, my friends. Even though there are no shortcuts, there are some guarantees. Yes, in a life where “Ain’t nobody promised tomorrow…” (Quote from The Wire series), there are some promises in bodybuilding that can be made. Let’s look at these truths which cannot be denied.
If you asked any new trainer in the gym why he’s there, you’ll likely get one of three answers. First, “I’m here to get bigger”. This is to be expected. The second answer will probably be “I’m here to get stronger”. Again, this is a very reasonable goal. Finally, the most likely answer will combine the two and will sound something like, “I’m here to get bigger AND stronger”. (For the sake of this exercise, we’ll ignore those trainers seeking to lose body fat).
