7 - Neglecting Weaker Body Parts - Come on. We are all guilty of this at one time or another. Really... I mean what kind of ego is behind working a weak body part that isn't very strong?

Most bodybuilders tend to train their strengths; for one it's ego boosting and it's more fun. However, the true bodybuilders train their weaknesses harder. Improving your weakness makes it a strength and creates balance.

One example is my legs. I had very skinny legs my first few years in bodybuilding. They were obviously weak so that made it just that much harder to want to train them. After a few contests and judges feedback, I literally built massive and powerful legs in just 8 months by using these Laws you are now reading.


8 - Defining True Intensity - A large percentage of lifters are confused about what intensity actually is; this can be a problem if your goal is to build the best muscular physique you can.

A true certified personal trainer can tell you the difference between aerobic and anaerobic intensity. Aerobic intensity is based on time factor. Anaerobic intensity is based on poundage used.

So, is doing more exercises, sets, and reps higher intensity? Sure, if you want to build your cardiovascular system and muscle endurance. However, if you want to build muscle, stick with 2-3 exercises (including one compound exercise), and 3 sets, in the 6-8 rep range.
