But, there is a way you can build muscle without spending all your time in the free weight section of your gym.

Here's how you can build muscle:
  1. Make workouts intense
  2. Err on the side of less training
  3. Chart your progress
  4. Proper nutrition
  5. Restful sleep
  6. Self-education
  7. Never quit
