Thank you for continuing to follow our multi-part series, 8 Simple Steps Men May Take to Quickly Transition from Scrawny to Brawny. You have learned that the first step to building massive amounts of muscle mass is to drink a lot of water and to consume crazy amounts of protein. In fact, at this point in the game, you probably feel a little water-logged and are probably craving some sweet foods. That is perfectly normal. Don’t head for those sugary treats just yet, though. Instead, head for those weights. It does not matter if you work out at home or at the gym, the next step should have you flocking to a physical therapist for tips!
Step # 3: Learn the Proper Form and Technique
According to studies, it has been established that while most know and understand that they must lift weights and engage in a number of exercises to build muscle mass, most do not know the proper form and technique when it comes to these exercises. Improper form and technique are very commonly observed in any location where weight sets are accessed and utilized. Many that perform curls look more like they have seizing arms due to jerks. Many that perform bench presses do them in a rounded fashion. If you have a passion to go from scrawny to brawny, you are going to have to learn the proper form and technique associated with the weight-lifting exercises that will be necessary to build muscle mass.
Physical Therapy Optimizes Form and Technique
When you engage in the wrong form and technique, you are actually doing an injustice to yourself. Instead of building muscle mass, you are stagnating in your progress. In addition to this, if you are doing your weight exercises incorrectly, you stand more of a chance of experiencing an injury. Physical therapy will optimize your form and technique, yes; however, physical therapy also helps to reduce the possibility for injury and helps place a special emphasis on improving your overall health! While there are personal trainers that may help with form and technique, it is important to understand that there is a potential for you to learn any of the bad habits that they have. Physical therapists know the correct way, always.
There you have it – the 3rd step to transitioning from scrawny to brawny. It sounds easy enough, right? It is if you obtain assistance from a professional that knows the proper form and techniques associated with exercises that are designed to build muscle mass. Remember, it is better to do it correctly and reap massive rewards than to take the easy route, do it incorrectly, and stagnate in your muscle-building progress. Plus, by learning the proper form and technique, you will be able to avoid injuries, strain, and other health complications.
