Swole 101 – 10 Core Strength Tips

Swole Fitness Tips

It’s not this easy, but these 10 basic tips will get you started in your quest to accomplish your strength and bodybuilding goals.

  1. The basics have always and will always work best. You can build a core workout routine with just squats, deads, bench, overhead press, pull ups / chin ups, dips, and situps. Rows and curls can be added as needed.
  2. Find what works best for you and keep doing it until it no longer works. Start with the basics, optimize for your personal needs, repeat until you plateau.
  3. As long as you are making progress, stick with your routine. No need to change workout routines every month just because you don’t want to plateau. If your routine is working, stick with it UNTIL you plateau.
  4. Strength is greater than bulk. If you are strong you have nothing to prove and it is easy to get bigger. If you are big it’s tough to get stronger and strong guys will tell you “well, at least you LOOK strong.”
  5. Three months is the minimum trial length before you can pass judgement. Six months is even better. What I’m saying is, you need to stick with a plan for 3-6 months before you can say it does or doesn’t work.
  6. Free weights rule.
  7. Excuses will hold you back for your entire life if you let them. Stop making excuses, stop reading and researching, stop thinking. Just do it!
  8. You will become your environment. If you want to be weak and small, surround yourself with weak and small. If you want to be big and strong, hang with those guys, ask questions, and take advice from those who have accomplished what you want to accomplish.
  9. You have to really want what you think you want. If you REALLY wanted to be strong, you’d be strong by now. So change your mindset today. If you really want to be something, you have to want it more than anything else.
  10. Eat to grow. You have to eat if you want to get stronger. You have to eat if you want to get bigger. If you’re not getting bigger or stronger, eat more food. Especially protein.

  1. I agree with your first point, planning for workout that can practiced anywhere at anytime so that you can do it whenever you want. I am sure you do not want to rush to the gym center when you are looking to exercise.

  2. Training rules to live by. It doesn’t matter how many times you tell people not to overcomplicate things, they always manage to find a way to do so. I think people believe that you need to constantly evolve by changing how you do things. Keep it simple and you will see the results.
