Evans is very organized with his routine. “We would take two muscle groups, whether it was chest and back or biceps and triceps, and […] just destroy them over two hours,” he told . He did this six days a week, Monday through Friday, with a rest day on Saturday. (Sunday was a dedicated day to working any muscle he thought needed more work.) Follow his lead, and you’re sure to bulk up. And once these are burned in your brain—and your muscles are just, well, burning—move on to 10 more advanced ways of gaining muscle fast .
Great article, again!! I have a question as it relates to giving the body a break. I’ve been squatting, deadlifting, pressing, and bench pressing HEAVY for about 6 months. I’m 38 years old, 5’10” and am up to about 170 lbs. I’ve been eating a lot of food to gain weight and it’s been working (although I’ve definitely gained some fat in the process). I’m starting to feel pretty “beat down” and my motivation is diminishing. I’m considering a program of pushups, dips, inverted rows, pullups, one legged squats, and sprints (all bodyweight excercises) for a 2-3 month period. My concern is that I will lose the strength I’ve worked so hard to gain. Everyone says it’s nearly impossible maintain, let alone gain muscle from a routine like this. What are your thoughts? Thanks, again, for all of your insight on this website. Joel
