Don't go to the gym to build muscle!

We don't go to the gym to build muscle.  We go to TEAR it down!  Muscle grows when we are sleeping and resting so remember to get plenty of rest at night so that your muscles have time to grow and repair.  Make sure to allow a certain muscle group the time to repair itself before you work it out again or you workouts will be in vain.  Switch up your routines so that your body does not adjust to doing the same thing. Learn new workouts so you have plenty of options for changing things around.  Push your self to lift heavier weights as the weeks progress. Do two more repetitions then you think you can. Track what you lift and set goals.
