Rome wasnt built in a day

I have many people asking me how they can bulk up in four weeks, six weeks or eight weeks and my answer to this is simple – Rome wasn’t built in a day. This means that you can’t go in a gym tomorrow and in eight weeks expect to be built, no matter what some of the adverts and ebooks you see on the internet tell you.

My view is that in a twelve week window you can see a significant difference if you put the time and effort into your training, this significant difference will mean you can gain a good amount of muscle mass if you train hard and eat correctly, but this does not mean you will become huge in this time.

If it was as easy as spending a few weeks in the gym to become tonk or built then all men will be mini Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, the truth is that it takes a lot of time and effort to become big, strong and defined.

If you are looking to build your muscle mass then take note, after the first twelve weeks you will see a significant difference when compared to your starting point, again if you eat and train correctly. Taking this into account it will take a good 12 months or more before you see a huge difference in your physical appearance.

Don’t despair if you are reading this and thinking 12 months is too long, in the grand scheme of things 12 months is not long when you think about the difference you will see in your body in this time. With the correct training and diet you can put up to twelve kilograms of muscle in a year dependant on your body type.
