My name is Skip La Cour; I am a 6-time national champion, drug-free bodybuilder. You can learn how to improve your bodybuilding and training efforts by visiting my websites skiplacour.com, manformation.com, massmachinenutrition.com. And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. I want to offer you some muscle building tips, tricks and techniques. When you go into the gym, you want to always make sure that you have a specific plan. You don't want to just show-off to work out, you want to have a plan of what you are going to do during that particular work out. You want to document your progress along the way and set goals. Before you do any exercise, any set, you want to have a goal of what you want to accomplish in that set. Another tip is that you want to keep your workout session to 1 hour or less. Intensity is very important to help you build muscle and keeping those workouts brief, will help you keep that intensity level live. You also want to remember you want to perform fewer exercises, fewer sets and use more weight in doing your workout. With that intensity, really charge yourself to lift more weight to do your workout session. And you also want to use form; form that is good enough for you to only hit at only the muscle group and at the same time it allows you to challenge yourself to lift more weight. And those were some muscle building tips, tricks and techniques.
