Bodybuilding Beginners: Build Your Foundation First!

By Sean Nalewanyj
Natural Bodybuilding Expert & Best-Selling Fitness Author

Let me ask you…

Have you packed on at least a good 15-25 pounds of clean, muscular body weight since you began your muscle building program?

Are you moving poundages on your squat, deadlift, bench press, row (and every other major compound exercise) that all feel substantially heavy for your body?

Have you added at least a couple of inches or more to all of your major muscle groups?

Are your clothes fitting significantly tighter? Are your friends and family noticing measurable changes in your physique? Are you generally beginning to gain a reputation as a muscular guy that people aspire to look like?

If you didn’t easily answer “yes” to all of the questions I just outlined above, then worrying about the smaller details of your physique is quite simply a waste of time at this point.

As a well known muscle building author, I receive all sorts of emails every single day from aspiring natural bodybuilders around the world. They’ll ask me questions such as…

“What can I do to target my inner chest?”
“Which exercise is best to build up the lower biceps?”
“My rear delts are lagging behind my front delts. What should I do?”

If you’re still in your bodybuilding “youth” and don’t already have a considerable amount of muscle mass to show for your efforts, I would strongly suggest taking these types of questions and eliminating them from your mind until you do.


It’s because diverting your focus onto these small and trivial issues will only serve to distract you from the most important and immediate task at hand.

And what is the most important and immediate task a hand?

It is to pack as much raw muscle size and strength onto your frame as humanly possible!

That’s right; forget about the nitty-gritty details of whether your biceps match your triceps or whether your chest is on par with your back. These are issues that you can worry about later on, but until you’ve thickened up your entire body as a whole to a significant degree, it’s simply not worth worrying about.

If you’re still a beginner and have been training consistently for less than a year, then stop obsessing over the details. Instead, place all of your focus on the most basic and obvious issues at hand…

Get yourself onto a sensible, rational weight training schedule and stick to it religiously.

Write down every single workout that you perform and place every ounce of energy you can muster on adding as much weight to the bar on a consistent basis as you possibly can.

Grind out all of the biggest, most difficult compound exercises and blast through those discomfort zones with passion and intensity.

Get yourself into the kitchen and pack in at least 5 or 6 properly balanced muscle building meals every day of the week, every week of the month and every month of the year.

Drink your water, get your rest and take your supplements whenever necessary.

In other words: PAY YOUR DUES FIRST!

If you’re in this for the long haul (and you should be, as there are no temporary fixes to be had here), then get yourself on to the most efficient path possible. And the most efficient path possible is the one that focuses on the fundamentals first and the details later.

This is the mentality you need to bring to your bodybuilding program. Just as you wouldn’t attempt a complex guitar solo without learning basic chord shapes first, you also should not attempt to fine-tune and balance out your physique until you have a considerable amount of foundational muscle to work with first.

Building muscle is not rocket-science, but it is a task that requires consistent willpower and determination. And until you’ve been “in the trenches” and have earned yourself an impressive and muscular body...
Stop over-analyzing... Stop obsessing... Stop spreading out your focus onto every single minute issue that pops up…

Get into the gym and TRAIN!

Muscle Gain Truth Review

The Truth About Building Muscle!

After a long and very frustrating quest to find an honest muscle building program, I finally stumbled across a product called, Muscle Gain Truth. This program was created by a guy named Sean Nalewanyj who claimed that he was going to expose “the truth about building muscle”. To make a long story short, I gave the product a try… now I will let you know what this program is really about and whether or not it hold up to its claims of telling the honest truth about building muscle.

After I purchased the product, I was then redirected to the “private download area”. The first thing I downloaded was the eBook entitled, The Truth About Building Muscle. This book basically challenges every traditional and commonly accepted principle about muscle growth. All of the information that he provides is backed by research and proved through numerous studies and tests. This book alone literally contains the absolute truth about muscle gain and everything you need to know in order to accomplish your goals.

Sean has also added a two hour audio that covers the 12 most common body building mistakes. This section alone is worth the price of the entire course! Seriously… you will be amazed… I quickly realized that I have been doing several things incorrectly over the last few YEARS! A lot of time wasted… meaningless effort… all the hard work for nothing... I wished I would have learned the truth about muscle gain when I first started… my gains would have been much more significant by now.

To top if off Sean also threw in a completely 26 week work out plan! So there’s nothing really left to guess work. All you have to do is follow the step by step plan and do exactly what it tell you to do. You simply can not fail using this program. It is scientifically impossible! If you can follow instructions, you will see muscle gains in the fastest time possible! It is really that simple. It is not rocket science.

The muscle gain truth program truly goes above and beyond hopes and expectation. There is tons of other material and tools packed into this site that will just make your head spin! Video Exercise Database, Online Video Sessions, MGT Progress Tracker, “My Personal Trainer”, Hardcore Workout Video, and much more… It is simply unbelievable! This guy must really be crazy for giving all of this is stuff away for almost nothing!

Anyone… and I mean anyone who seriously wants to learn the truth about building muscle should definitely check this program out… The Muscle Gain Truth program is by far the best program on the market hands down! There’s absolutely no way you can fail with this fool proof, step by step program. It also comes with a 60 day guarantee just to prove it!

Neglect Your Leg Workout and Your WHOLE BODY WILL SUFFER!!! (trust me)

Let’s face it; the honest truth is that a good portion of lifters in the gym just don’t seem to care
too much about training their lower body.

I mean, a thick pair of quadriceps aren’t exactly what most people would consider a “showy” muscle... and I don’t think there’s anyone out there who can remember the last time a woman asked him to “flex his hamstring” for her.

Everyone is so hell-bent on having a wide, thick upper body that they either neglect or flat-out ignore the other half of their muscles down below.

They’ll come up with just about any excuse to avoid hard and heavy leg training, citing such responses as “I just run to develop my legs”, “squats are hard on my knees”, or some other bogus reason along those lines.

I cannot even begin to stress how costly a mistake this really is...

Not only does it look ridiculous having a ripped and muscular upper body sitting atop a pair of toothpicks-for-legs... but what if I told you that your refusal to place equal muscle building focus on your lower body was actually limiting the amount of muscle you could gain in your chest, back, arms and shoulders?

You might think it was nothing more than a cheap tactic to get you into the squat rack, but it really is true.

See, most people think of weight training as a simple black and white issue of “train muscle X using exercise Y, and muscle X will become bigger and stronger”.

This limited view of muscle growth is one of the primary reasons why most trainees fail to maximize their results in the gym. They end up settling for mediocrity and never achieving the kind of explosive, monster muscle gains that they are truly capable of.

Here’s the truth…

The muscle building mechanism within the body goes far beyond a simple localized event that happens at the level of the muscle tissue itself!

A great deal of muscle growth also results as the entire body as a whole is placed under stress and adapts on a holistic level. This is achieved through the increased secretion of important hormones such as testosterone and growth hormone.

These hormones are considered the “holy grail” of muscle growth, as they are one of the primary limiting factors that determines how much muscle any given individual can ultimately gain. When bodybuilders inject anabolic steroids into their bodies, all they are really doing is increasing the circulation of these important substances.

Now, because you’re a natural trainee and jamming a roid-filled needle into your butt just isn’t your style, you’ve got to find other methods of speeding up the production of these muscle-increasing compounds.

And what is one of the most effective ways to do this?

You guessed it…

Hard and heavy leg training!

Squats, leg presses, lunges, stiff-legged deadlifts…

Did you ever notice how incredibly challenging and downright gut wrenching these exercises can be when performed to a high level of intensity?

After finishing an all out set of these lifts you may find yourself wishing that you hadn’t come to the gym in the first place. This is because they involve the largest muscle groups on your body and allow you to move massive amounts of weight.

The reality, however, is that while these leg exercises require a lot of mental toughness and willpower to stick to, their intense difficulty is one of the key ways to really force your body to rev up its anabolic hormone production.

Greater anabolic hormone levels means greater muscle size and strength, not only for your lower body, but for your entire upper body as well.

What this means is that if leg training is not a regular part of your workout schedule (or if it is part of your schedule but is simply treated as an after-thought), you are missing out on significant total body gains that you could otherwise be achieving.

Really, take me up on this offer…

Incorporate a hard and intense day of leg training into your weekly workout schedule. Include the most basic compound lifts such as squats, leg presses and stiff-legged deadlifts, and focus on pushing yourself to the limit and adding more weight to the bar each week.

Try this out for 4-8 weeks, and then come back and tell me what you notice.

If you’re like 99% of the population, you’ll report that your strength on every single upper body exercise shot through the roof... and that your chest, back, arms and shoulders became noticeably thicker and more muscular as a result.

If you truly don’t care about the size of your legs, then fine, I can’t force you to do so. However, if not for the sake of your lower body, then at least include hard and intense leg training for the sake of those upper body muscles that you care so much about.

It may not seem logical at first glance... but the plain reality is that intense and consistent leg training really is one of the true “secrets” to a massive, ripped and strong upper body!
