2- Increase the Weight:

Another way to build muscle mass is to increase weight. This method is the most commonly used way to max out muscle size. Once you’re able to easily perform your reps and sets with perfect form, it’s time to add more weight.

There is no hard and fast rule to adding weight to your progressive overload workout plan. Adding five pounds doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it could be for a beginner compared to an advanced lifter. For beginners new to lifting and progressive overload, add as little weight as possible to challenge your muscles.

Beginners should see results much faster than advanced lifters. A beginner shouldn’t be surprised if they can add weight and/or volume after a gym session. Eventually, you will reach a plateau and need to employ other methods to continuously build muscle.
