Everyone always asks "How do I build muscle... " You have to get committed! You can read and listen all you want to the experts, but the only way to get results is to get on board. There is a lot of information out there so it can be tough to determine what is true and what isn't so you have to be smart about it. Get the information you need and follow through with it! Everyone always wants the quick way out in life. However, when it comes to getting bigger that doesn't necessarily exist. There are some important factors, however, that can help you do this.
Do the Right Exercises!
Any exercise that you do will have a positive effect on your body if you perform them correctly; however, there are some specifics that are more beneficial than others. These include bench-pressing, squats, dead-lifts, pull-ups and dips. Including these kinds of exercises in your workout will give you more intensity, and use more of the body's muscle groups in order to move the weight. This will allow you to get more done in less time! No one has time to waste so every little bit can help. Power lifters tend to focus on only a few specific exercises, such as these, that use your entire body. If you want the results, these can give them to you.
Eat ONLY the Right Foods!
It can't be stressed enough, diet is extremely important! You have to make sure you are eating right or you will not get the results you want. Focus on eating foods with a lot of nutrients. Include a lot of protein in your diet so you can get the results you are hoping for as fast as possible. Take the time and do a little research on what you should eat. Believe me, you won't regret it. Just a few things you should have in your diet include chicken, fish, lean beef, lean turkey, nuts, sweet potatoes, oatmeal and eggs. You need to custom fit a diet to your body and stick with it.
Your muscles actually grow when you are resting, not when you are lifting. This is why it is essential for you to take time off and allow your muscles to recover after working out. You should not be in the gym every day of the week. You have to take days off; it is sometimes a good idea just to do a cardio day every once in a while as well. Along with this make sure you are only working out a max of 5-6 days a week. You need to make sure you are sleeping at least 6-8 hours every night. This will allow your body to recover properly and pack on muscle faster.
Use the Right Supplements!
You should not rely on solely supplements for your nutritional needs. They can be very beneficial to your bulking, but you have to focus on workouts and diet as well. Supplements can be added at any time so it is best to stay on track by hitting the gym and eating right, before you take any supplements. Once you feel comfortable, I recommend buying a good protein powder, a pre-workout, and a multivitamin. These can all be found online cheaper than in stores.
These are all extremely important factors to your success. Make sure you commit yourself and follow through with all of them, and you should start seeing results in no time. Now, of course you aren't going to get bigger over night, but don't give up.
