Is your daily exercise at the gym not showing you appreciable muscle gains, even though you have been sweating it out? Would you like to know how to gain weight and muscle?
Are you burning a hole in your pocket spending on supplements that do not live up to their promise to bulk you up in no time? You have come to the right place if your answer to all these questions is yes. It is possible to gain weight and muscle and without burning a hole in your pocket. All that is required is some actual knowledge on muscle growth and common sense.
If your progress has been less than spectacular, read on; the bodybuilding recipes outlined here will show you how you can gain weight and muscle.
Intensity is important. When you want to gain weight and muscle, you need to intensity. You have to do super-intense exercises. Your gym workouts need to make you sweat, and you need to maximize your time spent at the gym by making every moment productive.
Push your reps as close as possible to the point of failure. Your body gets into a state of shock by these intense workouts and immediately starts adapting and responding, helping to gain weight and muscle.
More protein means more muscle. Keep a check on your protein intake, ensuring you are getting enough of it in your diet. Are you eating the right pre- and post-workout meals?
Do you eat many high protein meals a day and use meal replacement packets to increase the protein content in your meal? Proteins build muscles, and you will be unable to gain weight and muscle unless you consume an adequate amount of protein everyday.
Eat more times in a day. Increasing your metabolic rate helps gain weight and muscle, and to do so, you should eat five to seven meals per day. You should choose meals that contain a combination of high quality proteins, some carbohydrates, and a little fat.
Your raised metabolic rate will help you burn fat quicker, and your ability to gain weight and muscle will increase.
Be sincere to your diet. You will undermine your ability to gain weight and muscle if you regularly eat food that is high in carbohydrates and fat, albeit it is okay to do so sometimes.
Calories from proteins are required to increase strength and endurance and to gain weight and muscle. Drink plenty of water. Your muscles contain 70 percent of water.
Bodybuilders need lots of water to gain weight and muscle. The important ingredient in any bodybuilder’s diet is water. You should aim to drink at least 0.6 ounces of water per pound of body weight, on a daily basis.
Get enough rest. Your muscles do not grow in the gym. You workout only helps to break down the muscle tissue.
Your actual muscle building process starts only after the workout ends. You need to ensure that your body gets enough of rest between workouts in order to allow it to gain weight and muscle.
Training everyday will not help you gain weight and muscle. Taking a day of rest between three to four days of workout every week is as important as proper nutrition for muscle building.
Get enough sleep. You also need to sleep well in the night in addition to taking adequate rest.
To gain weight and muscle, it is recommended that you sleep for at least eight hours every night.
Lack of sleep triggers a hormone called grehlin; this hormone not only makes you hungrier but also lowers your body’s testosterone and growth hormone levels.
You will find it difficult to stick to your diet plan and workout with maximum intensity unless you get adequate sleep.
Your body’s fat burning ability improves when you sleep well, helping you to quickly get that ripped look that we all desire.
