You do need to be weary of injury; however in the beginning we want to shock the hell out of your muscles and stimulate them to begin growing as fast as possible in these early stages of molding your body by building up big muscles.
You do not have to spend more time in the gym at each session, but simply lift more weight to make the session harder in other ways. You don’t want to injure yourself by pushing too hard but you do need to push because you will never build muscles by bench pressing a writing pencil!
Hard Workouts to Failure

Failing in weightlifting is where you literally lift a weight and perform as many repetitions as you can until you literally cannot lift anymore. This drastically aids in tearing down muscle fibers which then regenerate and grow bigger. If you get home and your biceps are too weak to lift the toilet paper of the roll in the bathroom then you know you accomplished your job for the day.
Shorter Sessions but More Intense
Many people think that they need to spend long hours in the gym lifting weights every day. Long sessions are always nice if you truly want to build your muscles up but you can also do shorter sessions that are much more intense. There are many workout routines that allow you to get a super awesome weight lifting routine in where you push your muscles to the max yet are out of the gym in 90 minutes or less. You can do less than 60minutes 6 days a week and build big muscles but if you truly want to sculpt your body into a work of art then you need to spend a lot of time in the gym and make it intense.
Eat a Balanced Diet that is high in Protein
Eating healthy is the second part of the equation to building huge muscles. Many new bodybuilders who want to grow massive muscles feel that they need to immediately start taking expensive supplements. While bodybuilding supplements definitely are essential, you need to first focus on eating a proper diet that will keep you healthy as well as feeding your body to help promote optimum muscle growth. If you lift a lot of weights daily but drink sugary sod a pops and eat donuts non-stop each day then you will never reach the goals you have in mind for a big muscular body.
Stick With It
It can be easy to “peter out” at the gym and decide to take a break from weightlifting. A few days turns into a few weeks and the next thing you know you are an old man who never returned to bodybuilding and failed to accomplish your dreams.
Fortunately with bodybuilding it is a sport that is easier to stick with once you have been doing it for awhile. Once you begin to see nice gains in muscle mass on your body and it will motivate you to continue to work even harder and the gains of muscle will be noticeably much higher.
It is easiest to quit bodybuilding when you are new to the sport. It can be very intimidating figuring out what to do, and then once you know what to do sticking with it.
A qualified personal trainer is a great asset to have when you first begin lifting weights. A personal trainer can show you how to use the equipment, establish a workout plan and meal plan based on your goals and will also be able to help keep you motivated and pushing along on your plan. If you are new to bodybuilding you will get a lot of conflicting advice on what to do and what to eat. Everybody in the gym will be offering advice to you. Some of it will be great advice you should take to heart and others will give you advice that is meant to be helpful but is not good for your personal goals. A personal trainer can help get you on the right track towards your goals much faster than trying to wing it on your own.
