Stay Ripped By Building Mature Muscle

I’ve been training for 12 years now, yet my core physique that I built between September 1999 to March 2000 has stayed relatively the same.

Yes… I have lost and gained weight a few times over during that period. But still, my core physique has stayed the same, which means that right after a bad period and with hard work, insane training, strong mentality and disciplined nutrition, It will take just 3 months (Max) to build muscle mass… the way I like to!

How am I able to do this?

By building mature muscle mass!

In other words

Stacks of lean muscle/ Muscle that sticks!

Once you have that you should be able to maintain the core physique that you build.

  • Regardless of whether you workout or not.
  • Regardless of your body type (Lean muscle mass will burn calories for you – At you low metabolism body types)

Some Steps To Take On Your Journey To Building Mature Muscle Mass

The first thing you need to understand is that the process of building huge amounts of lean muscle mass will take time. (2 years on average). And will require consistency on your part.

Experience and life has shown that you will face challenges during that time period and no one knows for sure what the future holds. All you need to is ‘go hard’ every time adversity creeps in.

You can do that by…

#1 Focusing On Your:

  • Mental strength
  • Level of focus
  • Determination (Ante up, even when you’re on a mental high. Doing this will take you to heights that even you thought were unattainable)

Mastering these points will make the journey so much easier down the road, because you would have become conditioned (Where focusing on the above becomes the norm).

#2 Work Your Ass Off

Inspirational people exist everywhere and in every industry. But know this…

99% of those individuals achieved what they have because they worked their asses off!

  • Mental
  • Physical
  • Personal

Strengths… and others.

They have taken the time to perfect those attributes. And that couldn’t be any truer for bodybuilders (famous/ non famous) that have left you feeling inspired.

If they are insanely ripped, it’s because they trained insane for a good period of time. I would go as far as to say that it’s an obsession in some cases.

Does that scare you?

Well… don’t let it!

Great things happen when you take risks and step outside of your comfort zone.

Are you scared of what other people will think of you?

Well don’t be! F**k ’em.

This is your life, your body, and you WILL get what YOU want out of it!

What they think is not important. So don’t delay and work your ass off.

#3 Start As You Mean To Go On

”Excellence is never final. You will need to keep tweaking, testing and nurturing your excellence”

Don’t be fooled!

You will still need to workout to maintain the body that you develop. Just know that building huge amounts of lean muscle will give you options.


  • Want to diet down to focus on cutting? (No problem)
  • Want to train 6 days a week without damaging your muscles? (No problem)
  • Want to cut back on weight training for extended periods of time to focus on cardio? (No problem)

Sounds great doesn’t it?

Well, if you like the sound of that start training insane today and start focusing on building mature muscle.


  • Champions up their game and rise in the face of adversity!
  • Have fun and enjoy the journey. Because you need to look back at these events one day and have no regrets. Just memories of pure gold!
