Use Cycling Phases for Massive Muscle Gains

By: Sasha James

Do you enjoy starting new cycle of your training schedule? I do, especially one just after my recovery week. Thing is in keeping your mind fresh and workout sessions interesting. You may have your own experience of things becoming so regimented after a while and it's cool to have a week where you arrive to gym each day not knowing what you are going to train. It keeps things fresh and fun.

I assume you have a recovery week (week off) in program you follow now. Try to develop sharp focus of mind at the first week of training after a recovery. To have that focus or right frame of mind is simply setting yourself up for success during the rest of your training cycle.

I like to view the first week of training as a new beginning and take advantage of this time in order to make the most out of the weeks and months ahead. If you are serious about getting the maximum muscle gains in strength and lean mass your training goals during the first week should acclimate to training again and adjust to a new training routine with and a different arrangement of body parts.

Here I want to give you one practical aspect of system I used to build up 25lbs of lean muscle mass in first three months. It gives you deeper insight in importance of proper approach to training cycles. You should measure the intensity and select those weights that allow you to complete desired number of reps fairly. I repeat, this is part of the adjusting process that takes place over the course of the week.

The first week is also a great chance to clean your courtyard so to speak. This is the best time to erase any bad training habits that may have crept in over the course. Try to use all the training sessions in this week to make sure exercise execution is right and proper. Also one has to be aware of the first weeks obvious importance. Don't ever try to go after your personal best lifts this first week after a recovery. This week is also important for the role it plays in developing mental momentum as well.

Use this week to reestablish again your goals. Get the clear picture of what you want to achieve and map out a exact plan how you are going to get there. With self-critical eye examine your performance over the last training cycle. Differentiate parts of your training that were good and very importantly, be honest about the aspects that need improvement. Sometimes very few small changes could cause significant even huge changes for your overall progress.

During the months of going to Gym we all get comfortable with the way we are doing our routines, even if it is not exactly the best way. This first week in new cycle of training is a great opportunity to start fresh. Reinforce desirable habits and make sure all the principles are present and being executed to the best of your abilities.

You should be able to examine the parts that need to be better. One of the biggest areas I want to improve on is maintaining better consistency with a great workout mind set I want have to say for the majority of the workouts I had very good focus and intensity, especially early on in the training cycle. But the truth is most of the time just isn't going to cut it. I need great focus and intensity all the time in order to make the changes I want to make for next year. I can't afford to hit and miss.
I need to keep hitting with my best physical and mental efforts day in and day out. That is a major goal for this cycle. I want to make sure that I giving my best during cycle and that all begins this week of establishing great training habits and restating the goals. You should feel your training cycles are giving you results.

If you are not sure about the methods you are following please stop speculating and do start using proved methods. Blind man can not show you the rainbow and non swimmer can't teach you swimming. If you are on proper, powerful and productive path of muscle strength and mass building you are more than happy with your results. You can feel them, measure them and show them. Stop dreaming and start gaining. Please. That feeling of
