Here’s 5 bodybuilding tips and tricks that will help you build your body faster. True, you can put on muscle without using these idea. But why make it hard on yourself?
1. Go Big To Little
Start your workout with big lifts. Squats, bench presses, standing presses, and deadlifts – the good stuff!

Want to put on weight, as muscle? Eat more.
Lose weight, as fat? Eat less.
These are the basics. Now if you want to be certain about your weight loss, or stay good while just gaining muscle, count your calories to make sure you’re eating exactly the right amount.
Counting calories is a pain, but… It works. End of story.
4. Don’t Whine About Your Setbacks or Your Genetics
These days, everybody seems to be focused on why they can’t reach their goals. “I have bad genetics,” or, “I don’t have the time,” or whatever.
If you really want it badly enough, you’ll find the time. You’ll find the time to work hard, really find out everything you…
