3 Most Important Things About Muscle Building
Many people assumed that putting more weights on barbells & doing hundreds of crunches in a day will give them big biceps & toned abs, however those were false assumptions which left many people wandering why they couldn?t see any improvement although they have been training for years & years in the gym. In this article we will guide you on 3 actions that you will need to take to build muscle.
The first thing you need to do is exercise. Weight lifting is the way to go if you are looking to increase your muscle mass. Training each of your body part once per week (Except abs which requires at least 3 times) is good enough to earn you some muscle. It doesn?t matter how heavy the weight is, good form is more important than how heavy you lift in the gym. It looks cool when you can lift more than anyone around you, but dislocated shoulders & back pain is something that will come along together with bad form of executing an exercise. When you are swinging or moving with the weight, that?s the time you should lower your weight to avoid unnecessary injury.
Believe it or not exercise is perhaps the easiest thing to do when it comes to weight lifting because nutrition is what insulates most people from getting huge muscle. There's a saying that great abs are made in the kitchen, and most bodybuilders will say the same thing to you should you ask the same question. To build muscle, you will need to increase your calories by taking most of it from protein, starchy carbs & healthy fats. Take 5 -7 portion of meals in a day consist of 40% of protein, 40% of carbs, and 20% of fats. Don?t be afraid of fats though, it can help in your muscle building progress if you take in the appropriate amount of healthy fats.
After intense sessions of training, your body will need some rest to let your muscles grow. Sleep at least 8 hours everyday & remember not to overtrain. By that I don?t mean reduce your workout session or anything, since each of the muscle group may take up to 5 days to recuperate, you will need to give it some time before you start working with it or you may tear up the muscle group & ended up gaining nothing in the end.
