6. Don't train the same muscle group more than 2 times a week

7. Do 9-12 sets per muscle per session. Don't train the chest muscles with all the equipment in the gym with the assumption that more are better. You only need to use 3-4 equipments each with 3-4 sets (Use basic compound movement, but not isolation movement).

8. 6-8 reps until failure is a must.

9. Use negative reps. After failure, ask friend / spotter to help you lift weight. Vary the negative reps for 2-3 weeks.

10. Use high intensity training for weight training. Which means, short breaks between sets, about 1.5 - 2 minutes. And lift weights as heavy as possible. Example: for people with height around 160-165 cm, use minimal weight with 25-30 kg combined bench press. If you have not been able to do it, slowly raise the weight each week until you are able to lift it up and ask for help if you need a friend.
