Having had a less than desirable amount of sleep and a more than desirable amount of bad food and alcohol, I still made it out this morning and almost equalled my fastest run pace from Saturday! In fact I think I found this one much easier. I’m still going to do W3 twice more before tackling W4. Just the sight of it scares me!!

Why Simply Gaining XX Pounds of Muscle

Wherever it Winds Up

is Not the Route to An Attractive Body!

    Gaining untargeted muscle is easy and over-rated. The problem with following the standard advice of concentrating on the “big 3” lifts (squat, deadlift, and bench press) is that it will most likely create a terrible looking, bulky physique. Think about that for one second. Wouldn’t you rather look more like Jude Law versus a bloated looking professional wrestler in the WWE? You see, even if you are a little on the slim side you can still look “cool” and hip. You can wear designer clothes. You can look “GQ”, etc.   …but if you put on too much muscle on the wrong places you get that “cheesy” meat-head aura…and that is not a place where you want to be.   Most women are repulsed by guys who are “overdone” ! …But these same women love the right amount of muscle. Some examples of this are Taylor Lautner, Cam Gigandet, Brad Pitt, Will Smith, Dwayne Johnson (now he has slimmed down), Hugh Jackman, etc… I realize that attracting women isn’t the only reason to put on muscle, but it is most likely at least part of the motivation to attaining a nice looking physique.

…But Where You Gain the Muscle is Just the Beginning.
There are two types of muscle growth that affect the look of a muscle. Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy: This is growth caused by the increase in fluid (sarcoplasm) within a muscle cell. This is a fast way to increase the size of a muscle, but since sarcoplasm is a fluid and can’t contract…it won’t make the muscle significantly stronger. Myofibrillar Hypertrophy: This is actual muscle fiber growth. This adds a lot less to the size of a muscle than sarcoplasmic growth, but since muscle fiber can contract…it will make the muscles significantly stronger.
