Take It To The Next Level!

Building the target physique involves good diet, rest, and hardcore intensity. There's no reason why the athlete can't socialize at the gym, after all weight-training is a fun & exciting sport. However, when the time comes to pump iron, it should be all about maintaining proper form and full range of motion (two areas we've reiterated repeatedly), but there should also be an unparallelled, almost irrational intensity that pushes the muscles beyond failure (w/ the careful assistance and supervision of a good spotter, where needed).

Our muscles respond to good, sound nutrition & recovery, but to trigger growth spurts, you'll want to push yourself past the limit. Remember - FAILURE IS NOT YOUR ENEMY, if anything, it's your guiding light in the gym.
