10 Reasons You're Not Building Muscle
Building muscle and packing on the pounds isn't just about "picking things up and putting them down." What's holding you back?
1. YOU'RE IMPATIENT
If you’re a true beginner, the first phase of your training program results in changes that you can’t see – typically, your coordination improves with each exercise and the amount of co-contraction between muscles decreases. Your brain gets better at communicating with your muscles and can actually activate a higher percentage of your muscle fibers, commonly referred to as neuromuscular efficiency. Don’t look in the mirror after two weeks and wonder why you’re not getting bigger. Be patient and put in the work, the results will come.
