  •     Resistance Training Is Key It is no surprise that if you want to build maximum amounts of muscle, you are going to have to participate in regular weight training. There is no way around it.

This might spark some feeling of invincibility within you. Changes like becoming bigger and fuller, the unravelling of hidden vascularity, as well...
