Gaining 20 pounds of muscle is NOT impressive if 15 pounds of that is on your butt, thighs, and waist.
Gaining untargeted muscle is easy and over-rated. The problem with following the standard advice of concentrating on the "big 3" lifts (squat, deadlift, and bench press) is that it will most likely create a terrible looking, bulky physique.
So even 100% pure muscle gains, can ruin your look if the muscle is added to the wrong places on your body.
As the video shows…adding muscle in the wrong places creates a rounded "curvy" look. As a guy you are not aiming for an hour-glass figure. Simply chasing a muscle gain number is a nearly guaranteed way to kill you chances of a lean and angular physique.
…but if you put on too much muscle on the wrong places you get that “cheesy” meat-head aura…and that is not a place where you want to be.
So How do the Guys in Hollywood (Taylor Lautner, Cam Gigandet, Brad Pitt, etc) Get that Ultra-Lean Look…Where it Appears as if Their Skin is Shrink Wrapped Around Their Muscles?
When you first get lean, your skin lags behind a bit and has to catch up to your new body size. This is a big reason that a lot of people who try to get lean for summer actually look their best in July or August instead of June.
Want to Ensure That You Add Muscle in a Way that Dramatically Enhances Your Appearance…and Allows You to Create the Exact Look You Desire?
(I knew someday I would need to talk about gaining muscle in a way that didn’t ruin the physique…but I also knew that this would take 50+ pages to properly explain).
You see…the mainstream methods of gaining muscle mass are backward if you want that lean, "hip" look. Just go into any gym and take a look at the personal trainers. Do most of them have the look you are after?
I don’t care if your personal trainer swears by seated dumbbell military presses -or your best friend thinks standing barbell military presses are the way to go. They both work your shoulders. Alternatively, you could do the Nautilus press, Hammer Strength, or even lift a log over your head (Rocky IV style).
Bottom line? If you want to add muscle and you…
