Building Muscle 101 Newsletter # 29 December 2008

It's Blake from building muscle 101. I have some cool tips and information for you in this month's issue. The response for the question and answer section has been overwhelming. This month, I believe I have about 14 answers for some of the questions.

Unfortunately, I can't get to all the questions but I will try and answer them in next months issue. If you have any questions, please go to the question and answer page and simply scroll to the bottom of the page.

I'm taking a break from my weight training because I have the flu. It really sucks because my training was going great. Anyways, I thought it would be important to talk about weight training when you have a cold or the flu so I've written quickly about it. Also, my buddy, Pete Sisco, has given me some great articles about strength training and building muscle. I'm sure your going to love them.

Enjoy this month's issue.

Can you weight train with a cold?

This sucks. I'm just peaking in my weight training cycle and I get struck down with the flu. Instead of being at the gym pounding away at the weights, I'm stuck on the couch watching the 4th season of"Lost" (hate that show because it never really ends!). Find out what I've learned from trying to weight train while you have a cold or the flu.

Do you need to train to failure to build muscle?

I've been weight training for over 20 years and if there is one thing that has been pounded into my head is that in order to get big and strong, you need to train to failure. However, after a series of injuries, I've come to realize that my body can only take so much. Is there another way to get big and strong? Does one need to train to muscular failure in order to build muscle and strength?

Holiday weight training tip

The holiday season is a different time of the year for weight training. I mean, everything seems to be so busy and if your anything like me, everything kind of goes out the window including my diet and training. However, I do like to do something very different at this time of the year. I'll break away from my regular routine and just do something against the grain. Check it out in this article.
