Break down your long-term goal into smaller increments. For example, if you want to gain 50 pounds of muscle over the next year, then you could make your first short term goal to gain five pounds during your first month of weightlifting.

2. Make A Vow: Do not let lack of commitment be the reason you fail to pack on muscle. Do not let confusion lead to lack of commitment. Get a hold of a good weight lifting program so you have a step-by-step plan to follow on your way to achieving your muscle building goals.
