The Surest And Fastest Way To Build Muscle

By Emmanuel Palmer

What do you do when the weather is becoming warmer and clothes are getting sparser? Go to the beach of course! If you're still unsure about baring your previously indulgent physique, don't worry there's still time and definitely room, for improvement. Get a gym membership and read on to find out about the fastest way to build muscle.

So now you have a new found zest for fitness-or the rediscovered childhood trauma of being made fun of. Either way, you will get the desired results if you want it bad enough. Before we start, it's a good idea to understand the basic principle on how bodies build bigger muscle. See, progressive overload is increasing the amount of weight your body carries-it reacts by building stronger tissues which we now recognized as bigger muscles.

Consult with your personal trainer about the drills you will be doing and the weights you should be carrying. As a rule of thumb, the ideal weight load for you is the one that will enable you to continue lifting until the 8th or 12th rep without losing the correct form. A lower weight load is good enough for strength training but in muscle building we are aiming to push your body to stimulate muscle growth so aim to do at least 8 reps per set and 8 sets per target muscle group.

In lifting heavy weights, your muscles get little rips that gets fixed as you go on. To aid the process of mending your muscle tissue, you will need to have a lot of protein in your diet. You can get the recommended protein intake for your body with a simple computation. First, get your lean mass weight by subtracting fat and your total body weight in kilograms; then multiply this amount by 2.75. Get your protein by eating healthy food like chicken, sea food, eggs, nuts and cheese.

Experts have opposing views on the amount of fat serious bodybuilders should have in their diet. Fat increases muscle building hormones, so if you are set in getting a bigger body, include fat in your meals. It's a good idea to monitor yourself closely in this matter because if you ever take time off from training without changing your food intake, you will continue gaining weight but with less than attractive results. Drink plenty of fluids to fuel your workout sessions; 10-12 glasses of water a day is advised.

Carve out enough time for a good night's sleep. You may not know it but getting quality rest actually helps your physical development more than you know. Sleep is when your body repairs the rips and tears in the tissues during exercise; it also induces blood flow to all of the muscle groups. Build bigger muscle by making time for your body to rest properly.

There you have it- simple pointers on the fastest way to build muscle. A well-balanced diet, sufficient fluid intake and good sleeping habits; it really doesn't get easier than that. Verify with your physician that you have no medical conditions that will be aggravated with physical training. Once you get a clean bill of health, you have nothing else to do but enjoy. See great results in your body and general well-being when you begin this journey-another lifestyle will not be an option anymore.
