HOW TO GET BIG MUSCLES BY RESTING

How to Get Big Muscles by Resting

To get big muscles, you need to train hard and eat enough. But in this article, I’ll explain how to get big muscles by resting. Most bodybuilders want to increase their strength and muscle mass and are often ready to do just about anything to get it. However, one thing many bodybuilders and weight trainers fail to understand is how to get big muscles by resting. There are three pillars to successful bodybuilding, and they are training, eating and just as importantly the third pillar is getting enough rest.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET BIG MUSCLES BY RESTING?

MUSCLES ONLY GROW WHEN RESTED

As a personal trainer, one of the most common questions I get is how to get big muscles? Many people laugh when I tell them one way how to get big muscles is by resting your muscles since they don’t grow while they are being trained.

Yes, that’s right, your muscles are only stimulated to grow while you’re training them. Your muscles only grow while they are resting, so if they don’t get enough rest they absolutely won’t grow.

TAKE A WEEK OFF TRAINING

Another successful way to get big muscles by resting is to take an entire week off training once every three months. You might be thinking that you definitely don’t want to take a whole week off the gym since you may feel as though your muscles will shrink if you do this, but all top-level bodybuilders take several weeks off training every year to fully rest their muscles, and this allows their muscles to get even bigger once they start training again.

REST REJUVENATES THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM

Taking a week off training is one of the secrets of great bodybuilders for generations to get big muscles since top bodybuilders know they need to rest their central nervous system every few months as well as their muscles. Your entire muscular body and your internal system need a break from hard training to rejuvenate the system and allow you to grow to your full potential.

Growing big muscles is an equation. Train hard whenever you go to the gym, eat a high volume of good quality food all year round and get enough rest by taking at least 2-3 days off from training each week and take a full week off training every three months, and you’ll notice the improvement in your size and strength once you get into the habit of taking adequate rest as part of your bodybuilding lifestyle.

When you put together the sum total of my 30 years of bodybuilding training, the contests, the vast array of diets I have experimented (tortured) myself with as well as the experiences I have been through with various training partners in the gyms I have trained in all over the world, it’s been a great ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do lots of personal training for private clients alongside my day job. For a few years during my 30’s, I moved to Asia and worked as the Fitness Manager and head personal trainer at one of Thailand’s leading gyms in Bangkok. Learn More
