7 Reasons You’re Not Building Muscle



#4 Your training partner sucks

I can’t tell you how many times I see people go to the gym with a training partner that is just totally wrong for them. A good rule to follow when picking a training partner is to make sure that your fitness levels match. But the last thing you need is the person who has the same fitness level but doesn’t have the same commitment to building muscle. You want results. If your training partner doesn’t want results, you definitely won’t have any either.

The lesson:

Are you in the gym for more than an hour and still not getting results? If so, you’re not working out hard enough and you or your training partners need to stop talking so much or looking at the beautiful ladies and get to work. Remember: A standard gym session should not last more than an hour. And if you find yourself trying to drag your training partner from machine to machine, rack to squat rack, and just trying to force them to give effort when all you want to do is leave it all in the gym, you have the wrong training partner.

Final thought:

Picking a training partner doesn’t have to be hard. As I said, you should look for someone with the same fitness level, but you really have to make sure that the commitment is equal on both sides. Since that can be a problem at times, my advice is to talk to a trainer who could then potentially match you up with someone who would be a good partner for you so you can both work off of each other’s motivation and see results! Just remember, partnering up with a person who is well beyond your fitness level, and who looks like they belong on the cover of a magazine, will not bring about quicker muscle gains for you.
