Introduction

This book offers 25 tips for those attempting to build mass or tone, with the advice divided into five separate categories that all play a vital part in successful training: Assumptions; Focus; Exercises; Diet and Supplements; and Attitude.

I address some of the most common issues that weight trainers may face, including how to combine cardio and weight training, workout habits and how to perform the exercises, the use of supplements, getting into the right frame of mind, and more. All of the suggestions come from my personal experience both as a gym user for years and from working out at home, and I’ve made mistakes and learned from them to understand what works and what doesn’t. The tips are suitable for both men and women, new trainers and the more experienced alike, and may offer guidance to those who are struggling and some new ideas for everyone else.

Section 1: Assumptions

TIP 1: Weight training vs. cardio

Many of those who follow a weight training routine to build muscle may also undertake long cardio workouts at some point during their week. Weight trainers may do cardio with the belief that it will improve their metabolism to burn fat, and prepare their body for the muscle building process. But this strategy may actually be counterproductive to the stated goals. Weight training is designed to get your body accustomed to lifting relatively heavy objects, forcing it to increase the amount of muscle carried to deal with the challenge. Long cardio workouts are performed to get your body used to undertaking prolonged physical exertion, forcing it to become more durable to manage the struggle. The two are very different processes.

Both weight training and cardio workouts burn calories, and both will improve your body, but they prepare the body for conflicting challenges:

Weight training is high intensity and low frequency. It takes effort to lift the object, but after a few repetitions (reps) and a matter of seconds you’re done;

An extended cardiovascular workout is the opposite, representing low intensity and high frequency. It’s easy to jog lightly on a treadmill, or use an elliptical cross trainer for a period of seconds, and the challenge is maintaining it.

By doing both weight training and long cardio workouts your body can be caught in two minds. It may not know whether to prepare for high intensity exercise, by building muscle mass or improving muscle-fat ratio (i.e. toning) to ready itself for any challenge, or to prepare for high frequency exercise, by not building more muscle than needed as that would divert energy away from the activity and into maintaining your body. As a result your body may not achieve either goal.

If your primary goal is to build muscle mass or
