The Importance Of Weight Training

If you really want to gain weight and build solid muscle mass, you’re going to need a good plan. You’ll never see results if you just wander into the gym and start using whatever machine you think looks fun. Unfortunately, this is what a lot of people do. They walk in without a plan, and then they walk out without results. You don’t want to be that person.

For the best results you should exercise no more often than three times per week. If you stagger different groups to train on different days, you can allow each groups as long as a week to
