Powerlifting is a method of weight training which is rather advanced in comparison to traditional weight training or even bodybuilding. A powerlifting competition involves lifting a one-repetition maximum (for up to 3 attempts) in the squat, bench press, and the deadlift. The reason why you should consider using powerlifting routines to build up muscle fast is that powerlifting is one of the fastest ways to get stronger. In addition to eating properly for muscle building, you must get stronger before getting bigger... otherwise you would have professional bodybuilders on stage who could only squat 200 pounds injury-free! The strength developed in powerlifting is amazing. Here is what you need to know before you get started using powerlifting routines to build up muscle: • You MUST get doctor's approval BEFORE starting powerlifting. Unlike other forms of weight training where control of the weight and slow lifting and lowering is imperative, powerlifting focuses on explosive lifting and controlled lowering of the weights. Make sure that your back, knees, shoulders, and other joints can handle the stress. In addition, make sure that you do not have any heart, circulatory, blood pressure, or other concerns before you start powerlifting Decide on whether you are going to compete. If so, you may have to make an investment in proper powerlifting gear including, but not limited to: squat suit, bench press shirt, heavy powerlifter's belt, wrist wraps, knee wraps, chalk, and other powerlifting items. At least consider a good, sturdy belt. If you do not know where to start, pick up a copy of Powerlifting USA magazine and look at the advertisers there You may have to learn new exercises. While powerlifting focuses on the basic squat, bench, and deadlift there are many supplemental exercises designed to help you get stronger in those lifts. Such supplemental exercises are the floor press, board press, box squats, using chains, using heavy-duty elastic bands, and other exercises which most people (and even most personal trainers) do not know how to do. Seek properly trained and experienced people who have been involved in powerlifting for years if you want to learn these exercises

Once you start your properly-constructed powerlifting routine you will notice several increases in your strength levels. Remember to eat correctly, do your conditioning and cardiovascular work, and stretch. Combining all of these will go a long way toward helping you build up muscle fast.

If really want to build up muscle fast then consider going to the owner of the gym voted the “Most Hardcore Gym In America” by Muscle & Fitness in July 2005. Learn from Brian Dobson, the original trainer of 8-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman. He has taught NFL athletes, Mr. Olympia bodybuilders, champion powerlifters, Ultimate Fighters, and other strength athletes how to build muscle fast. To get several free reports go to:
