    If you dont work out continiously then the muscle u built will turn into fat.

    - Only if you train to muscle failure, your muscles will grow.
    - Cable Crosses train the "inner chest".
    - Concentration Curls trai your biceps for maximum height.
    - There are exercises which define your muscles.
    - High reps define your mucles.
    - Isolation exercises are bad for hypertrophy.

    for me, the greatest myth and one that lead to the longest length of failure for me is "you need to train your XXX muscle more cuz its weaker". and i would, and it would get smaller or stay the same and then it would get burnt out.

    The first biggest change came when i did s1+. the second biggest change and equally important is when i started training no body part more than once a week. i'd say if it's got to be one or the other, i would rather undertrain than to overtrain. i.e. if your busy, train each body part once every 8 or 9 days then, but no matter what, just dont overtrain.

    The myth I hate the most has to be the one that says bodybuilders are insecure and they are trying to make up for other shortcomings.

    The people that look at anyone with a tiny bit of muscle and say 'steroids' piss me off too.

    I hear that all the time. The sad thing is I heard a personal trainer recommend that to a client that before. I couldn't believe it.

    Im gonna follow (Insert Stupid Bodybuilder's) plan to a "T" because if he can get big using that program, so can I.


    OR


    Bodybuilders are big because they eat a lot, train a lot and take MuscleTech Products.

    what's even more comical are the skinny people who say they are going to lift at home and get big before joining a gym because they don't want to go in there skinny...lol like the huge guys in the gym were born that way...

    I think all of the people who I know who have made that comment never started working out at home, so needless to say they never joined a gym...

    one myth i hate is the one that says you have to work out for x amount of time to see any results.

    My dad feels like my workouts are too short (30 to 1 hr dependin on what body part is it) he works out for like 2 hr man i'm like uhhhh thats entirely too long and he's like nah i feel like i did enough now you need to workout that long ... maybe u should workout in the morning and at night two workouts a day 1 hr a piece ... i'm just like shut the fuck up (2 myself of course lol) but yea i hate that one

    You couldn't say that any better man. My mom tells me this... I just tell her to shut the fuck up too (except I actually say it ).
    I don't train hard, eat right, and do the things I do for others. I do it for myself.



    ....did I mention the ladies too???
