It takes time, dedication and a good understanding of food macros to successfully add any kind of muscle to your body. Once you have all of these things in balance, you'll reap the rewards of feeling like a happier, healthier, stronger version of yourself.
The first step in breaking a bad habit -- or not developing one in the first place -- is to identify the problem. Here are seven common workout mistakes I see all the time and suggestions on how to fix them.

These two methods are similar in some ways, vastly different in others; but both are extraordinarily effective if used correctly. Applying each at the right time during your training cycles is a surefire way to allow for continued growth.
I've often said that while gaining muscle can be very difficult, it's also pretty simple -- at the heart of it, you just need to take in more energy than you expend, and use an intelligent program. This is especially true for beginners.

"Frustrated" is the first word that I hear all the time from clients who are trying to build muscle. You've been hitting the gym for a few months now trying to "get big" or tone your body, but aren't seeing results.
Whenever a client expresses to me that they want to lose weight, I always say to them, "No, you don't -- what you really want is to thin out the layer of fat that is sitting on top of your muscle, and add more muscle to your body." Yes, all that. Let me explain.
