If your goal is to build large muscles then you need to follow a few important rules. Check out the article below, which reveals how to pack on dense, rock-hard muscle without any useless fat. This article is perfect for beginners or intermediates that need help with muscle-building nutrition. There are a bunch of sweet training tips too.
To build muscle mass, you need to work out on a consistent basis. Gaining muscle isn’t going to be easy, and it isn’t for most people, so don’t get discouraged or frustrated if you don’t see results right away. If you devote the time and have the determination to work out on a daily basis (take at least 1 or 2 recovery days per week) you will begin to see your muscles increase not only in size, but strength as well.
If you are unsure of where to start, consider visiting your local gym and talking with a trained professional about what your goals are and they will be able to give you a great routine for your body size and goals. Also, you can try using muscle enhancing supplements such as protein powders or Muscle Might to help increase muscle mass. However, you should do your research before taking any muscle enhancing supplements as many can be detrimental to your health.
Below are some easy steps that can help you increase your muscle mass easily and remain healthy at the same time.
1. Eat A Solid Breakfast
We’ve all heard it before, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After sleeping for 6-8 hours, you’re body has used up its nutrients and will require more if you’re looking to build mass. Start the day with foods such as egg whites, fruit, oatmeal, and perhaps a protein drink.
2. Drink Lots of Water
Drinking 1 gallon of water a day should help keep you hydrated and your body clean of toxins and impurities. If you’re taking supplements to help build your muscles then you’ll need to flush out your kidneys also. Simply keep water on hand throughout the day. Take water to work, the gym, at home, everywhere.
Simply put, you won’t build any mass if you don’t sleep, your body needs time to recover from your workouts. Getting between 6-8 hours of sleep per night will ensure that your muscles have time to heal and your immune system has time to recharge. Naps during the day should not count as part of your 6-8 hours of sleep per night.
4. Add Weight, Not Reps.
Only do 8-12 reps. Strain your muscles with each set of reps, but be careful not to add too much weight as your form will become sloppy and your muscles will not benifit as much. Your muscles should be very tired at the end of each set of reps.
These are a few basic steps to help you pack on the muscle. Follow these steps and the other guides on MenMuscleBuilding and you should be well on your way to getting that body you’ve been working for.
The author nailed it. I completely agree. He laid out four basic strategies to help you build muscle at warp speed. All of the points he listed above are basic, but are necessary in order to maximize your body’s anabolic environment. I wish he had spent a little more time discussing how to design your program with alternate exercises. Other than that, spot on advice.
