Gain Muscle Fast

So, You’d Like to Gain Muscle as Fast as Possible

Few will now recall Angelo Siciliano, the Italian-American bodybuilder who later gained fame under his new name of Charles Atlas. The subject of one of the most memorable advertising campaigns ever, Atlas transformed himself from a “97-lb weakling” (45 kilos) bullied by all, to earn the title of “America’s Most Perfectly Developed Man” in 1921. His secret was a method of exercising he devised and christened “dynamic tension” in which the body’s muscles are pitted against themselves. However, his remarkable muscle gain, though comparatively fast, still took rather longer than he might have hoped. Interestingly, before perfecting dynamic tension, Atlas tried various conventional fitness training programmes employing weights, resistance machines, and calisthenics, but all to no avail.

Of more recent origin and rather more familiar to most South Africans, will be the Austrian-American star of movies such as the Terminator and Predator franchises, and four times holder of the coveted Mr Universe title – Arnold Schwarzenegger. When his soccer team was taken by its coach to a local gym, Arnold is said to have picked up a barbell for the first time, marking the start of his quest to gain muscle fast. He favoured a more conventional programme based on weightlifting and other forms of resistance training. His success was based not upon speed, however, but on perseverance – a quality that enabled him to become the youngest holder of the Mr. Olympia title at the age of 23 – a record that still remains unbeaten today.

These are just two of the many memorable individuals who have devoted their lives to developing the perfect male form. The list includes names such as Reg Park, Steve Reeves, Frank Zane, and Mickey Hargitay, to name just a few. Each one of these extraordinary men was required to follow a punishing regimen of daily workouts over a period of many years, in order to gain muscle and to make fast their claims on such prestigious titles as Mr Olympia. Even today, at the age of 70, the veteran of action movies and former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is known to spend at least 30 minutes every day of his life exercising with weights, in order to maintain his enviable shape.

Clearly, these are all exceptional men who have been driven by a passion to be the very best they can be. Realistically, however, this is a rare quality that only a relatively few individuals possess. For the remainder, however, there may now be a way to share some of their physical success without the need to devote quite so much time and effort. In effect, it is a tried-and-tested technology that is able to help anyone to gain muscle fast. It is a method that should serve to make the task easier and quicker for anyone, regardless of age and how fit they may be when they begin.

Rather than lifting weights and other forms of resistance training, Body20 studios employ direct electrical stimulation to promote muscular contractions. Around 150 times more effective than a single lift, personalised programmes of just 20-minutes weekly could help you gain some serious muscle fast.
