HOW TO BUILD AN AESTHETIC PHYSIQUE by @tommaccormick⠀

Want to look dramatical
HOW TO BUILD AN AESTHETIC PHYSIQUE by @tommaccormick⠀ -⠀ Want to look dramatically bigger? The answer is simple.⠀ -⠀ Develop a V-Taper!⠀ -⠀ The v-taper can be boiled down to two main elements:⠀ 1️⃣ Build your shoulders⠀ 2️⃣ Get shredded⠀ -⠀ At the end of last year I did a series of posts on building your shoulders and how this can make you loom wider. Go and check those out if you’re struggling t build your shoulders.⠀ -⠀ To fully build the v-taper your lats and upper chest are also key.⠀ -⠀ If you build these muscles and get lean you can create the illusion of being much bigger than you really are.⠀ -⠀ If your are 60kg (135lbs), 80kg (175lbs), or 100kg (220lbs), the look of symmetry is what will take you from looking good to great!⠀ -⠀ Broad “3D” shoulders⠀ -⠀ A thick upper chest⠀ -⠀ Wings for lats⠀ -⠀ A tight, lean waist.⠀ -⠀ This is the look girls love!⠀ -⠀ Gaining just 5lbs of muscle in the “right” places can make you look 10-15lbs bigger.⠀ -⠀ IF YOU WANT TO RAPIDLY TRANSFORM YOUR PHYSIQUE focus your attention on these muscle groups!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vtaper#delts#shoulders#shoulderworkout#lats#latsworkout#lateraldelts#reardelts#abs#goldenratio#bodybuilding#physique#mensphysique#shredded#ripped#leangains#leanmuscle#chest#chestworkout#upperchest#wings#fitness#fit#bodybuilder#body#transformation#love#photo#instagood#picoftheday

Cutting VS Bulking by @musclemonsters ⠀ _ ⠀ A successful bulk is simple: stay in a slight surplus, eat enough protein, aim for progression, and do more work gradually over time. When the goal shifts into fat loss, only a handful of things will change. ⠀ _ ⠀ Calorie Deficit: if we want to lose fat, we must be in a negative energy balance, meaning we’ll have to consume less calories than we’re burning. ⠀ _ ⠀ Protein Intake: The science is pretty clear that we don’t need as much protein as we once thought (0.8-1g/ lb will suffice)…but here’s the kicker: a study conducted by AUT University concluded that energy-restricted athletes will need a bit more. The consensus is that somewhere around 1-1.4g per pound of fat free mass is necessary to maintain muscle tissue when dieting. ⠀ _ ⠀ Train for Strength: Decreasing intensity while in a caloric deficit is the fastest way to end up skinny and weak. The reason for this is simple: if we train with light weight for an extended period of time, we lose the strength and size adaptations we worked so hard for. We can (and should) reduce volume, but never intensity. The best way to maintain strength is to train as heavy as you did to develop it. The better we do at maintaining strength, the more muscle we can retain. ⠀ _ ⠀ Less Volume: Fact is, we only require a fraction of the training it took to build a muscle, to maintain it, and anything else is just unnecessary stress placed on the body that could impair recovery, further. Bottom Line: Training volume can and should be decreased when dieting. If you’re currently doing 5 sets of squats, cut that down to 3 sets when dieting and so forth. Maintaining an adaptation can be done with as little as 1/3 the training it took to achieve it so don’t be afraid to train less, over time. ⠀ _ ⠀ #caloriedeficit#caloriesurplus#bulking#bulkingseason#bulkup#bulkingup#cuttingseason#rippedabs#fitnessmodel#musclemodel#fitnessbody#chestday#highprotein#highproteindiet#proteinbar#fitnessboy#fitness#fitness#fit#gym#workout#sport#shredded#ripped#muscle#muscleman#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#body#infographic

3 WORKOUT SPLITS FOR THE SKINNY BEGINNER [by @oakleyoday]⠀ .⠀ If you are a beginner, trying to gain muscle and put on some size, first off it’s important that you just start and stick to it.⠀ .⠀ However, as a naturally skinny guy we want to maximize your time in the gym and make the fastest gains possible.⠀ .⠀ That’s what these splits above will do. Each one will hit each muscle group twice per week which will maximize muscle growth. I recommend doing a strength focus workout (1-5 rep range) once per week and then throw in some more volume by hitting the 6-12+ rep range the second time around.⠀ .⠀ For those that will ask about Day 4...⠀ Push: quads, calves, chest, shoulders, triceps⠀ Pull: hamstrings, back, lats, biceps⠀ .⠀ Start with the 3-day split and work your way up to 5 days. If you just love training and want to train 5 days because you’re obsessed, go ahead! It won’t kill you. 💪🏼⠀ .⠀ TAG A FRIEND AND SAVE THIS!👇⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #WORKOUTSPLIT#fitness#gains#hardgainer#pushday#pullday#legday#upperbody#lowerbody#workout#gym#buildmuscle#musclebuilding#gainmuscle#musclegain#musclesplit#oakley#ectomorph#maximizemuscle#musclegrowth#bulk#bulking#bulkup#bulkingseason#aesthetic#infographic#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#fit#lifting

🔥BENEFITS OF PUSH UPS🔥 by @fitness.stance 💪

🔥BENEFITS OF PUSH UPS🔥 by @fitness.stance 💪 - Major muscle groups, such as your biceps, core muscles, triceps, anterior deltoids and lower body muscle groups are activated to support your body while stabilizing your movements. Classified a a compound exercise – meaning multiple muscle groups are called upon – you train the most important muscles throughout your body. Have you ever wondered by a standard bench press is so easy when compared to a standard push up? This is why. - One of the most underrated benefits of doing push ups is the stretch it provides to your biceps and back muscles. As you lower yourself to the floor, your back muscles are effectively stretched, and as you push yourself to the starting position your biceps obtain a full stretch. - Throughout the movements of a push up, you recruit a wide array of primary and stabilizing muscles. The more muscle mass that’s utilized in a strength training exercise, the greater the production and release of a specialized hormone known as HGH, or human growth hormone. - In order to properly hold your shoulders and back, your entire core must be strong enough to support its vertical positions. When push ups are properly executed, the muscles responsible for supporting posture are strengthened and fine-tuned. Moreover, as you regularly engage in push ups, your body will naturally lean toward proper posture. - There are few injuries as debilitating as a lower back injury. This essential part of your body supports practically every movement, so if it’s damaged or injured even the simplest of tasks can become excruciatingly painful. As mentioned earlier, pushups call upon your entire torso to stabilize its movements. By doing so, you strengthen this vulnerable part of the body, making it less vulnerable. . . . . . . #bodybuilder#fitnessstyle#fitnessaddicts#fitnesstraining#fitnessclothing#fitnessprogress#fitnessguy#fitnessgram#fitnesscenter#fitnesshumor#bodybilding#body#workoutideas#workoutinspiration#workoutpartner#nutrition#gymfitness#gympartner#gymqueen#gymholic#gymaddicts#fit#gymaddicted#musclenation#gainmuscle#muscleleague#bodybuilding#photography#fitness#gymtime💪

🔥HOW TO REDUCE BODY FAT🔥 by @fitness.stance 💪

It's true what they say, you can
🔥HOW TO REDUCE BODY FAT🔥 by @fitness.stance 💪 - It's true what they say, you can't out-train a bad diet. So the first step to any fat-loss plan starts with improving your diet. First, cut out processed foods, fake sugars and refined carbs. That means cutting out the cakes, cookies, ice cream, deep-fried foods and candy. Next, add more foods to your diet with low-energy density. Said more simply, include fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, lean meats and fish in your diet. - Skip high-calorie beverages with little to no nutritional value and grab a glass (or two) of water instead. This means forgoing flavored lattes, dessert coffees, artificially sweetened juices, sweet tea, alcohol and soda. Water not only helps keep your body hydrated and functioning optimally, but it also helps continually flush your system and can help boost your metabolism. - Spend two or three days a week doing high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Apply this to any form of cardio you enjoy the most -- running, cycling, stair-climbing, jumping rope, elliptical training or rowing. - Cardio isn't the only way to help your body burn fat. Adding muscle to your body gives you the potential to burn extra calories. In your strength training sessions (aim for two or three a week), do multi-joint exercises, such as bench presses, upright rows, bent-over rows, squats and deadlifts. Multi-joint exercises work more than one muscle at a time and promote fast muscle gain. - Some studies suggest grazing on small meals spaced two to three hours apart can help prevent you from pigging out come dinner time. Others point to intermittent fasting being a good way to jump-start fat loss and prevent overeating. The trick is finding what works best for your body. . . . . . . #bodybuilder#fitnessstyle#fitnessaddicts#fitnesstraining#fitnessclothing#fitnessprogress#fitnessguy#fitnessgram#fitnesscenter#fitnesshumor#bodybilding#body#workoutideas#workoutinspiration#workoutpartner#nutrition#gymfitness#gympartner#gymqueen#gymholic#gymaddicts#fit#gymaddicted#musclenation#gainmuscle#muscleleague#bodybuilding#photography#fitness#gymtime💪

🔥HOW TO EFFECTIVELY GAIN MUSCLE MASS🔥by @fitness.stance 💪

You should be keepin
🔥HOW TO EFFECTIVELY GAIN MUSCLE MASS🔥by @fitness.stance 💪 - You should be keeping whichever program you are doing to no more than 1 hour of duration. Be sure that you are focusing on keeping the intensity high rather than making the workout drag on. Plus, there's no research that says marathon training sessions are better for muscle growth. Focus on keeping your rest periods under a minute and limit the small talk with other gym members. - In order to gain weight, you need to focus on making your meals a habit rather than an afterthought. Your body is pre-programmed with your genetic disposition. And in your case, you have a very fast metabolism that digests and burns calories quickly. Focus on having 5-6 calorie-dense meals a day spaced 2-3 hours apart so that your body is constantly being provided with something to metabolize and build muscle. - I have been in your shoes, and I can't count how many times I have fallen prey to the supplement industry. You have to understand, a supplement is exactly as the name implies...a supplement. It is not going to make or break your gains in the gym. The only supplement I recommend is protein powder. - As mentioned above, your workouts should really be under an hour if even that. But the main take home principle is to make sure you are progressing at a workout. It's so simply yet so many people screw it up. They put in more volume and more until their workouts are at about 2 hours, and this is wrong. You should progress with every workout, but not too much. - Unless you are making great gains and progressing like nobody's business, I would suggest changing the rep range every 4-6 weeks to avoid plateaus. Changing the rep range will make your body adapt to the new stress causing you to gain weight in the form of muscle. . . . . . . #bodybuilder#fitnessstyle#fitnessaddicts#fitnesstraining#fitnessclothing#fitnessprogress#fitnessguy#fitnessgram#fitnesscenter#fitnesshumor#bodybilding#body#workoutideas#workoutinspiration#workoutpartner#nutrition#gymfitness#gympartner#gymqueen#gymholic#gymaddicts#fit#gymaddicted#musclenation#gainmuscle#muscleleague#bodybuilding#photography#fitness#gymtime💪
