This is a common struggle with that many men, if not all, will have while they are lifting weights. Do they want to be more bulky or overall and have more mass? Or do they want to not be as bulky but have extremely defined muscles and more definition overall? It is something that you’ll have to figure out as you begin to start your weightlifting journey. For some people they are genetics play a part in how their body looks and they will go with what feels easier.
For example, I am someone who puts mass on easier than others, but at the same time, I look less defined I just look bigger over all while still muscular. I have other friends that will not be as big but his muscles are more defined. It is just something that each category in this discussion has its own pros and cons over. However, that is all to say that it is completely up to genetics. There are actually certain workouts we can do that will give us the body that we want, or at very least help in the process of doing.
For Those Wanting More Definition: Lift Lighter but Longer!
Let’s start out with if you’re someone who is wanting to put on more mass an hour and is less concerned about definition. For these people, be ready for high repetitions of lower weight. Now this isn’t to say that your muscles will still not fatigue, the stuff that we will not be easy to do. You will be able to lift with lower weights be also be doing higher reps which is it which is putting your muscle in a state of growth over strength. This is crazy to think because you could be the bigger person but someone smaller than you could easily be much stronger, which isn’t always great for the ego. Something else that you want me to be doing is to be eating a large amount of calories preferably protein as you will need to really pack on the muscle and eat more. If you were not eating enough calories throughout the day you’re simply not going to be able to pack anything on. The workouts that burn the calories will have brand what you eat and are out today giving your body literally nothing left to add onto.
For Those Wanting More Mass: Lift Heavier but for Less Time!
If you are someone who is looking to be stronger and R and would rather just pack on pure mass as a post any definition, this would be the thing that you need to do. You will be needing to lift heavier amounts of weight but the good news is is that you don’t have to lift as much as the people in the first group. By doing this you may not be the biggest guy in the gym but you’ll probably be able to pick him up and throw them through a window, if you wanted to.
