Muscle Building is a poor mans game. Why? It all comes down to making the most you can out of the least possible.
If you are less fortunate, you normally have to share food, share clothes, save all the leftovers for a next meal.
Muscle building is no different.
It is NOT about who can "do the most work" in the form of the most amount of sets and reps and or weight even.
It is about who can push themselves the farthest, with the least amount of work possible.
Who can make that set of 10 reps the hardest possible, as opposed to doing a set of 10 reps texting and talking.
Making the most from the least, finding that place where you can push intensity to a level you need to build muscle is paramount.
This podcast goes over how to get there, why it is so important, and how you can actually do "less" work and still see results.
