Big-7 Growth Guidelines

Big-7 Growth Guidelines

One of my favorite things about bodybuilding is that itís purely an individual endeavor. Your degree of success or failure is contingent on your own efforts and not those of your teammates or friends. You cannot pass the ball or call in a relief pitcher; you must fight to the finish line completely under your own power. When things are not going your way, you canít argue with an umpire, check the replay or yell at a referee. You have to sit down and figure out exactly why youíre not getting where you want to be and then determine precisely how you can get back on track. Since there is no official rulebook in bodybuilding, itís up to you to write your own set of rules. You must decide when to train, how to train, what foods to eat, how much to eat, which supplements to take and, most important, just how consistent in and dedicated to all of these factors youíll be.

Priming the Anabolic Environment

Each month we will comb the archives of Bodybuilding.comís supersite and select one of the best articles to feature in our pages. This month we showcase David Robsonís work. Itís a comprehensive overview of how to keep your muscle growth on an upward trajectory. True, some of what he suggests is review, but we believe that it pays to review sensible views if you want to get huge.

Ab-solute Power

Bill Starr

Ab-solute Power

Throughout this series I have stressed the importance of maintaining proportionate strength in all muscle groups, both large and small. That certainly applies to the midsection, since all power generated by the hips and legs must pass through it, and all power produced by the upper body is thrust downward onto it. By midsection I donít just mean the abdominals or the lower back. The midsection is not really two separate planes but rather a continuous girdle, and all the parts of that girdle need some attention.
