You do not go to the gym without a reason. You are most likely in the gym to achieve a specific goal. And one of the most common goals in the gym is: people want to get bigger.
You arrive at the gym and chase bigger muscles or a bigger body. Then they do exactly what they think is necessary to achieve that goal. The Problem: Most people do not know exactly what they need to do to get bigger.
Ask the average gym-style man how to build bigger muscle, and he'll probably tell you to do exactly what he's doing: lots of sets and repetitions with lots of redundant exercises, including long breaks for Selfies or scroll through his social media feeds. Or if this guy spends a lot of time on the Internet, he thinks that intensive interval training is the secret of any size (Pro Tip: that's not the case).
In both cases, it is not easy to chase down the size of a gym without guidelines. That's why there are always a lot of people training who do not get the results they want.
The good news is that thanks to this guide with tips to help you get bigger, you no longer have to blindly go to the gym. They usually borrow a book from Chad Waterbury, Men's Health Huge in a Hurry as well as a training video program from Fitness Director Ebenezer Samuel, CSCS New Rules of Muscle.

The longer you lift weights, the heavier the weights need to be to see results. On the one hand, it's a stupid point ̵
As a beginner, you could increase in size and strength as long as the weight you used for a particular exercise was at least 60 percent of the amount you could lift for an exercise, one-time repetition with maximum effort. It's a weight that you can lift in a set 15 to 20 times. Anyway, that's pretty easy.
However, this percentage increases with experience. Most gym regulars must use at least 80 percent of their 1-rep to get bigger and stronger. Now it's about a weight you could probably lift eight times in an all-out set before there's nothing left in your tank.
