It is a fact that unless you push your muscles to grow larger, they won’t. What you need to do to use the overloading principle. This principle implies that you need to work with more weight than your muscles can handle comfortably. If you can do a sufficient number of reps (this means feeling that you just cannot do any more reps) that exercise your muscles to the maximum possible, they will respond by repairing themselves and growing larger to handle what you can throw at them in your muscle building workouts
Tip #2 – Eat the right foods, at the right time
Most often, when people on muscle building workouts find their weight stagnating, the culprit is usually their insufficient nutritional intake. They may be eating a lot of food, but those foods may not have high calorie-density. You need to get at least 4000-6000 calories daily in order to add bulk, and you need to get these calories from foods that are calorie-dense, such as nuts, trail mix, pasta, eggs, steak and bagels. Intake of vegetables is to be kept at the minimum required level to maintain a healthy balance as they tend to make you feel full while having low calorie-density.Make sure your heaviest meals of the day are right after your muscle building workout as your body’s energy demands peak at this time due to the demands made by muscles undergoing repair and growth. Eat once every couple of hours after that to give your body a chance to add to the muscle mass. In addition to this, it is highly recommended that you add creatine supplements to boost your muscle growth and muscle mass. Not only does it aids in building muscle mass it also helps to improve your performance in muscle building workouts. It is a highly popular supplement among professional bodybuilders, football players and elite athletes alike.
Tip #3 – Rest well after your muscle building workout sessions
This is something that is ignored by many on muscle building workouts, to their detriment. Your body grows and repairs itself only when you are at rest and cutting this short will mean that you are preventing your body from becoming bigger by over training. Avoid the temptation to cut back on your rest periods – your body needs it.Follow these three tips and watch your muscle building workouts bloom!
