Doing it the Wrong Way, Getting the Wrong Weight!

Do you feel that almost everything you were doing to build muscle was dead wrong? Imagine all the time, money and efforts you have spent working out were contributing to muscle growth, the wrong way! There are a lot of muscle building errors that impedes the progress that you want. But don’t worry, like all other things in life, muscle building is also a trial and error and a learning process.

We cannot only learn from our personal experiences but as well as from the mistakes of seasoned trainers who walked before us. Below are the three biggest and worst ways to building muscles. Try to erase these mistakes from your system and you will be a notch closer to earning the beach body you’ve been waiting for.

Skipping Out On Your Cardio
Even if you are the skinniest of skinny and your goal is to achieve maximal muscle gain it is important that cardiovascular exercises are part of your program. An aerobic form of exercise plays a vital role in building muscle and has been shown to speed up recovery from weight training by transporting oxygen and blood flow to the muscles. Doing weight training is almost useless for stimulating your cardiovascular system.

The circulatory system is developed because more oxygen is pushed through your blood resulting in a greater number and size of blood vessels. Since there is a greater cardiovascular density of blood vessels, your circulatory system has more ‘supply routes’ to shuttle oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues, including muscles, and shuttle away waste products that can slow muscle growth, repair and recovery. In the end, this means you will create a more optimal environment for building muscle!

Overtraining the Biceps and Triceps
It is a common sight in gyms to see small and weak dudes spending a full hour doing every biceps and triceps exercise imaginable. They do set-after-set, week-after-week with nothing to show but the same skinny noodle arms. What they don’t know is that for maximum muscle growth and strength, the biceps and triceps require very little direct stimulation!

If you want to yield good results, try to focus the majority of your training on the large muscle groups namely chest, back, shoulders and legs. Focus on increasing the strength and size in these big muscle groups and rest assured, building muscle in your arms will become easier.

Not Focusing On Getting Stronger
“Building muscle will almost always follow if you simply focus on getting stronger, I mean getting really stronger.” Unfortunately, training to get stronger seems to no longer be a part of the average trainees’ training regime. The stronger you become the more sets and reps you will be able to lift for more specialized movements.

The better your technique, the faster the recovery provided, the longer and harder you will be able to train. By getting stronger from week to week, muscle mass will sure follow thereafter. If you really want to build muscle fast – safely and naturally, you’ll have to make sure that you’re avoiding these three common bodybuilding no-nos.

How To Get a Fit Body

The Beneficial Effects of Pre-Workout Supplements to help you get a fit body

It’s really no surprise that people look for inforamation on how to get fit and they also look for information on how to build muscle on the net… The thing is, many times, learning how to get fit is not the same thing as building muscle. This little blog post is going to be more about how to get a fit body. It may not cover too much about muscle building… But, that’s okay! I feel like we are here for everyone!

One of the things I did realize was that there are also a lot of you looking to learn how to burn fat while keeping your muscle. I was at one point trying to find an exercise regimen and stick with it, but I was finding it hard to do!

Fit body concepts are pretty much similar to building muscle concepts so you should feel good that at least you are going in the right direction if you are looking to find an exercise regimen to help get a fit body, but are also looking at fit body concepts.

To begin with, let’s take a look at supplements. If you going to get fit, or even learn to burn fat while keeping muscle, supplements may make a contribution to the total goal.

While spending most of your time working out can help you achieve the bulk and strength that you want for your body, it must be combined with proper diet and the right supplementation. If you want to maximize the results of your hardwork in the gym, then you must start adding real supplements to your fitness regimen. Pre-workout supplements are one of the groups of supplements that you can greatly benefit from as you work out.

Here are the main effects of pre-workout supplements: First, pre-workout supplements boost the body’s energy during intense workout routines. This will help you to not feel easily tired by replenishing the electrolytes that your body begins to lose while lifting weights or performing any other exercises. The main ingredient responsible for the energy boosting effects of pre-workout supplements is caffeine. Second, pre-workout supplements helps you focus. Your body performs any task effectively when you are focused.

Pre-workout supplements give you this advantage by giving you a positive and the right state of mind as you perform your workout routines. Once you take the supplement before you hit the gym, you will have fun in doing your fitness routines with the same level of intensity that you had in your previous sessions. Third, pre-workout supplements can contain ingredients that can significantly reduce the percentage of body fat that you have.

Taking this type of supplement will help you lose excess fat and gain muscles at the same time. When you choose your pre-workout supplements simply look for the brands containing the major ingredients that are useful for your body. These include caffeine, arginine, glutamine and amino acids. As an extra benefit, you may also want to have a supplement with nitric oxide in its list of contents. Having all these in one supplement can give you the additional advantage of increased blood flow in your muscles and the repair and growth of your muscle tissues.

Okay, so now that we’ve talked a little bit about the whole supplement thing as well as getting a fit body, you may be wondering if this has any application to finding out the truth about six pack abs. Can you learn how to burn fat and learn how to get flat abs?

Essentially, the answer is yes you can. The truth about six pack abs is that some of it is genetics, and the other part of it is learning to burn fat while keeping you muscle. In order for your abs to show well, you kind of need to make sure that you have a low body fat count. A low body fat count will essentially help you to have your ab muscles show through.

Any way, I know we talked about a lot of different things…maybe because it’s the labor day weekend, I’m a bit non focused, but you can learn how to get a fit body and a lot of the principles are the same as working out to build muscles.

Supplements can help with the process, and yes, for those of you that are looking to get six pack abs, that can be a side effect of you getting a fit body!

Workout Routines to Lose Weight

What are the best workout routines for weightloss?

One of the things that people look to building muscles or even getting involved in a weight training routine is to lose weight. If you are looking for workouts to lose weight, then you may have just stumbled on a great article about getting shape and burning more calories than you thought you could. Weightloss and strength training can make a difference, and yes, they both go together.

At what ever level you are, this information is good for beginners and for intermediate exercise people. finding a good exercise to lose weight is about variety and selection.

If you want to lose weight, and your goal is permanent fat loss, you need to burn enough calories to make a significant impact. Here’s why, if you are exercising to lose weight: In order to lose a pound in one week, you need to create a 3,500-calorie deficit; in other words, you need to burn off 3,500 more calories than you eat. When you eat too many calories, that is how you end up with weight gain. You start to burn less calories than you take in.

A 30-minute power walk on flat ground burns about 120 calories. So, to burn off 1 pound of fat by walking, you’d have to hoof it for more than 2 hours a day. How many calories you burn has everything to do with you being able to lose weight.

But, Don’t worry too much about that huge number. If you are going to move your body, you will be okay. BTW, no one should suggest that you exercise two hours every day!

When choosing to lose weight, many simply change their diet. Maybe some will combine this with good aerobic exercise. But what many don’t know is that weight training can also contribute to fat loss. Muscle tissue burns fat, and the act of increasing muscle, increases the rate at which the body can metabolize energy, and ultimately burn fat.

Obviously just lifting a few weights by themselves will not constitute fat loss – but the combination of the right diet, exercise and weight training will give you the best chance of achieving your weight loss goals.

The best way to lose fat is to create a calorie deficit by burning calories through exercise and cutting calories you eat. (For information about keeping track of calories, see Counting Calories for Weight Loss.) For example, over the course of a week, you may cut 250 calories per day by switching from mayo to mustard on your sandwich at lunch and snacking on light yogurt instead of the stuff with tons of sugared fruit. Meanwhile, you could burn an extra 250 calories a day by jogging for about a half hour, or walking for 60 minutes.

Now, there are different work out routines that you can start out and it all depends on how much time you have for exercise in a day. People who have too much time to spend on their hands usually go to the nearby gym for some good work out with the use of the many gym and sports facilities that they can use while inside the gym.

So you see, this is all about making changes in what you eat and how you burn calories. But you may be wondering what is a healthy way to lose weight?

 

When it comes to weight loss, Cardio exercise is only one part of a weight-loss plan. You also need to revamp your eating habits and embark on a weight-training program. Also, keep in mind that losing weight is not as easy as it sounds on TV diet commercials. It takes a lot more commitment than just drinking that delicious shake for breakfast. To lose weight you need to make sure you’re burning more calories than you are eating.

Can I lose 20 pounds in 5 days?

What do you think? When you are trying to lose weight, you need to consider you basal metabolic rate and understand that you are working to increase that. The higher your BMI is, the more you are pushing your metabolism.

And it takes time. Don’t try to lose more than 1/2 pound to 1 pound each week, and don’t eat fewer than 1,200 calories per day (preferably more). On a super-low-calorie diet, you deprive your body of essential nutrients, and you have a tougher time keeping the weight off because your metabolism slows down.

Realize, too, that genetics plays a large role in weight loss. It’s easier for some people to lose weight than it is for others.

You do not have to visit a gym necessarily if you want to lose weight. You can very well exercise at home and get into your old favorite clothes again.  There are exercise and treadmill home gym equipments available these days that saves your time and enables you to exercise at home. The mood swings and depressions can be well taken care of when you experience an increase in the energy levels.

Here are some general cardio guidelines for weight loss. We suggest that you consult a registered dietitian and certified fitness trainer to come up with a plan best suited to your specific goals and schedule. Exercises for losing weight all have to do with how much you are going to burn in calories.

How often you need to do cardio for weight loss?
Here’s the cold, hard truth: You probably need to do five or six workouts a week for losing weight with exercise. If you feel like you can’t lose weight, or are not losing enough weight, one thing you may want to do is practice patience. Don’t give up. So many people give up too quickly, and then they miss out on the opportunity to get better.


How long your workouts should last in order to get good weight loss?

Here’s another dose of reality: You should aim for at least 45 minutes of exercise, a mix of cardio and strength training, six days per week. Again, you don’t need to do all this sweating at once, but for the pounds to come off, the calories you burn need to add up.

But keep in mind, if you can do at least 30 minutes, you are in the zone. 30 or more minutes is good for starting to change your basal metabolic rate. Training cardio at the gym and budgeting a workout time for about . Don’t forget you need to move your body as much as you can.

How hard do I need to workout for weight loss?
To make a serious dent in your fat-loss program, work out in your target zone most of the time. But keep in mind: If you’re pretty darned  you know…. out of shape… , even exercising at 50 percent of your maximum heart rate can help build up your fitness level.

You may have heard that exercising at a slow pace is more effective for weight loss than working out more intensely. In fact, many cardio machines have “fat burning” programs that keep you at a slow pace. But this is misleading. As it turns out, the concept of a fat burning zone is no more real than the Twilight Zone.

Eating and dieting are going to have to be planned and worked out hand in hand. Strength training workouts will be beneficial if you have the right diet and cardio program. If you eat a lot and want to burn fat, you are going to have to work out more. You want to lose weight but you can’t stop eating….well my friend, you are going to have a problem.

During low-intensity aerobic exercise, your body does use fat as its primary fuel source. As you get closer to your breaking point, your body starts using a smaller percentage of fat and a larger percentage of carbohydrates, another fuel source. However, picking up the pace allows you to burn more calories, as well as more fat calories. Exercises in this category are great for you. When you are in the fat burning zone, you will feel much better.

Which activities burn the most calories what are the top exercises to lose weight?

You can burn 1,000 calories per hour doing those activities if you crank up the machine to the highest level and if you happen to have bionic legs. One thing to consider is a heart rate monitor. If you’re a beginner, you’ll last about 30 seconds at that pace, at which point you will have burned 8.3 calories, and the paramedics will be scooping you off the floor and hauling your wilted body away on a stretcher.

There’s a better approach to calorie burning: Choose an activity that you can sustain for a good while ? say, at least 10 or 15 minutes. Sure, running burns more calories than walking, but if running wipes you out after a half mile or bothers your knees, you’re better off walking. The key is to work at getting into the fat buring zone and staying there.

One of the best things you can do is look at a metabolic rate calculator to decide what you need to be doing to be in the zone for proper weightloss.

One of the great resources for finding out more about weight loss and routines to lose weight is webmd. They ahve a nice community of networks that can help you.

Weight loss programs are many and varied.  They often only contain part of the picture i.e. either calorie reduction or exercise.  Workout routines need to contain both elements, preferably have no supplements i.e. contain everything that is needed and all of the weight you lose should be fat.  Weight loss programs are often dubious in quality but workout routines seems to stack up pretty well compared to most advice.

Top Post Workout Supplements

What is the best post workout supplement for training?

I was wondering that same thing after I did a search to find out what the best pre workout supplements were for weight training and building muscle.

So, what so you think I did, yep, I headed out to my local search engine and did some research. Here is what I found…

Making the decision of what to put into your body post workout is, necessarily, a bit complicated. Fortunately, through experimentation both clinical and personal, I have determined what post workout supplements to combine in your post workout drink to best effectively combat the imposed stress of a high intensity workout session.

Making the right decisions on which ingredients to ingext will make all the difference in the world and can help you get ripped fast. It is very important to take the time to understand what items will provide you with the recovery nutrients you need.

One of the opinions I got was taht Muscle Milk sucks… So upon further investigation, I found something called Optimum Nutrution. They have a whey protein.

I use Optinum Nutrition’s Whey protein with a little creatine mixed in. Any whey will do as you need the quick absorbing protein that whey provide. The creatine is to replenish the muscle’s energry. Also, I try to eat some fast absorbing carbs like a fruit as well.

In general, you have to be in calorie excess to gain muscle. If you are not seeing gain, check your diet and/or excercise routine. Keep in mind, of course that just by taking supplements, it will not help you gain muscle. you need to be working out! The post workout drink is only ONE step in getting muscle gain and will fail if your excercise routine or diet is off.

A good weight lifting workout routine is very important.

Ran into another forum and they recommended Glyco Maize.

The person has been using a Glyco Maize added to regular whey ( just cheapy stuff from Vitamin Shoppe but it works). Mix it 50/50 is what she said, but I know that there is more of a science to it and someone more knowledgable would tell you the correct amounts.

The good thing I noticed is that it really seems to cut cravings and it keeps you from wanting to eat everything in sight before bedtime. Post workout always take Glutamine too.

Overall, here are some general guidelines that you can keep in mind that will help you to understand what you need as you navigate the sometimes confusing territory regarding the best post workout supplements.

Whey protein isolate takes the best of a great, natural supplement, whey protein, and takes out the fat and excess calories, leaving you with 80-90% protein by weight. This is a great way to get pure protein without the excess baggage.

Leucine is one of the only essential amino acids known to upregulate synthesis of muscle growth and reduce muscle degradation. This will help you decrease your need for intake. It stimulates the brain into being satisfied.

Bovine Colostrum, or first milk, makes itself present at the end of the pregnancy cycle. It is often taken by high performance atheletes. The quality in the protein derived is known to reduce recovery time and also increase lean muscle mass. The powdered form can be added to a post workout supplement shake.

Dextrose is the simplest form of sugar(glucose) that is important post workout because it metabolizes and is absorbed quickly into the boyud. After intense workout, it can help you stabilize quickly. about 20g of dextrose can do the trick.

Creatine monohydrate is also important. it really helps recovery time. Start with 5g in a post workout drink.

The post workout supplement is designed to help you get all the fat protein and carbs your body needs to help regulate unsulin levels and continue to fuel your deprived body. Remember, mal nourishment can do more damamge to your weight training workout routine than the trainin itself.

A general plan of action varies upon your goals. When deciding to work out at night or when attempting to lose fat by cutting, mix 40g of whey protein isolate with 2g Leucine, 3-6g of colostrum and 5g creatine monohydrate. When deciding to increase mass and bulking, combine 40g whey protein isolate with 20g dextrose, 6g of first milk powder and 5g creatine. Regardless of dieting or cutting, 60-90 minutes after your chosen shake, sit down and have your chosen meal.

One thing to keep in mind. Your diet needs and post and best pre workout supplements will vary depending on your goals. As your weight training regimen changes, you may need to increase or decrease different supplements.

Speak with your trainer for suggestions. Also, consult with your physician when going on any supplement regimen. Regardless of whether or not you think that you have the best post workout supplement, if it doesn’t work for your health, then it won’t do you any good.

Best Pre Workout Supplement 2011

What is the best pre workout supplement for this year?

Click Here

Isn’t that the age old question? or.. for that matter, what is the best workout supplement for building muscle? That question gets asked over and over… and the answer is… you guessed it… depands!

The best pre workout supplement all depends on what your particular workout goals are. Of course, I’m betting that alot fo you are looking for ways to build muscle quickly and some are looking for ways to get ripped fast.

But see, right there, we talked about two completely different initiatives. Okay, enough talk about that. Let’s get to the business of discussion as to the best preworkout supplement for 2011.

You may find that there are some supplements that appear from previous years…. guess why? They still work!

Pre-workout supplements are extremely popular among both competitive and recreational lifters, in many ways because of the instant boost of energy that many of them experience. Many pre-workout supplements are designed specifically with the goal of being able to increase energy, delay fatigue, increase pumps, and boost muscle gains. The best pre-workout supplement are often all natural, and contain a combination of ingredietns that are supposed to give you that energy boost.

Almost all pre-workout supplements contain caffeine. If you need that jolt of energy for your workout, it is important tolook for caffiene in your supplement. There are also other pre-workout supplements also contain other stimulants such as geranium extract and synephrine to further boost energy and focus.

Creatine is another common ingredient. However you need to check the label, as many pre-workout supplements list creatine on their label but don’t really have enough to have a lasting effect. Your pre-workout should provide a bare minimum of 3g of creatine, any less and you are wasting your money.

Nitric oxide boosters such as arginine AKG, agmatine sulfate, and citrulline malate are also often included to increase the pump experienced from lifting, volumizing the working muscles. Nitric oxide boosters are help blood flow to your muscle fibers and that is what gives the feeling of the pump when you workout.

Beta-alanine is an ingredient that you will want to be sure is in your pre-workout. Beta-alanine delays fatigue (you know, getting tired) and reduces the burn felt in the muscle that can make you feel like you can’t go on and prevents the extra few reps. Your pre-workout should contain at least 1g beta-alanine, though the ideal dose is higher.

First of all, for those of you looking to get lean, you should definitley stay away from antying that contains creatine. Creatine has the tendency to cause you to retain water in your body. So, using products containing creatine will end up giving you the appearance of being fat and will deterioate your definition.

There are different types of pre-workout supplements being sold in the market. One of the highly utilized is nitric oxide. Despite the various choices for nitric oxide supplement, not all of them meet the standards that most people are looking for. If you want to greatly benefit from your pre-workout supplement, you have to take something that can provide you with energy and pump for your workout while improving your overall health at the same time.

Gain Muscle Mass

Now, let’s talk about strength and mass gaining. If you want to see how much muscle mass you can gain and how much weight you can push, then you may want to consider Superpump 250.

Superpump 250

In the pre-workout category, SuperPump250 is the reigning King of dramatic effects. Athletes who try SuperPump virtually never go back to any other pre-workout supplement, and its effects are so profound that the thought of training without it is simply out of the question for most users. In the groundbreaking independent clinical trial, increases in lean muscle mass nearly tripled in a single workout with just 1 dose of SuperPump250 as compared to not taking the supplement. If that’s not enough, body fat percentages simultaneously dropped as opposed to no changes in body fat recorded without the supplement. Consider all this with the added effects of explosive energy, mental focus and strength, and you’re left with seemingly very little to consider.

Concentration and Focus

If you want to have that long burn and energy to get through that grueling workout, then jacked is probably for you. Jacked is one of the most popular workout supplements on the market today. It really helps you get that intensity and the best thing is you don’t crash hard. One note, don’t take it and workout too close to bed time. You may not be able to sleep!

Jack3d

Like having tons of energy, strength, stamina and endurane for your workouts? Who doesn’t? There’s nothing like the right combinaton of compounds taken pre-workout to deliver consistently mind-blowing workouts to help you achieve your goal. After all, if your workouts suck, you can all but forget about making killer progress anytime soon. USP Labs Jack3d gives you the mad aggressive desire and ability to lift more weight, pump out more reps and have crazy lasting energy, along with sick muscle-engorging pumps. Jack3d is easily the most intense pre-workout product you will ever want to use again. The amount of energy anf focus is perfect, pumps and vascularity will be out of control, but most importantly you will feel great throughout your entire workout. No crash, no bloat, no headaches, no blown workouts.

The effectiveness of Jack3d is mainly attributed to the combination of stimulants that it contains. Just like any other pre-workout supplement, Jack3d has caffeine for its main ingredient. However, aside from this, it also has geranium extract called 1.3 dimethylamylamine. This substance is a natural compound that has been a common content of most foods for a long time. Moreover, it is also packed with schizendrol, an extract that can be obtained from schizendra plant. When caffeine, 1.3 dimethylamylamine and schizendrol are combined, they can sufficiently and safely provide the energy and focus that its users need to get through an intense workout session and even in other day to day activities. In fact, there are computer programmers and students who take Jack3d in order to keep them focused in accomplishing their tasks and performing their work without interruptions.

Other ingredients of Jack3d include AAKG, creatine and beta alanine. AAKG helps in pumping the muscles, creatine in the development of lean muscle mass and beta alanine for providing endurance. Unlike other pre-workout supplements, it is considered the best as it does not contain any trace of fillers such as maltodextrin, fats, artificial flavors, food coloring, processed carbohydrates and stool-splitting magnesium. Because of its simple and natural ingredients, Jack3d is also more affordable than other pre-workout supplements. Being the best pre-workout supplement that it is, Jack3d is undoubtedly one of the great nitric oxide sources at the moment.

There are many more ingredients with different functions that may be included in a pre-workout supplement, but these are the most common. While your pre-workout supplement may have a great ingredient profile, make sure that adequate doses of each ingredient are supplied. For example. if your pre-workout supplement contains a proprietary blend of 10 ingredients at 3g/scoop and creatine is listed last, then there is probably not much creatine in the product! Different people may find that different pre-workouts may be best for them, but just make sure that you aren’t paying $40 for a bottle of caffeine and that your pre-workout supplement actually contains real muscle building ingredients.

What about Nitric Oxide Supplements?

Most Suitable Nitric Oxide Supplement for You
You will know what is best for you by asking yourself further with the following questions:

Question 1: Do you prefer a stimulant or stimulant free product for your pre workout supplement?

Most nitric oxide supplements have caffeine and other types of stimulants which provide power, concentration and extra strength while you are working out. Because stimulants are beneficial, it is helpful to have them in your supplements. But, it is also recommended that you stop your stimulant use from time to time. In particular, you can use stimulant based supplements for 2 to 3 consecutive months and take a break from 2 to 4 weeks. This will help your adrenals work efficiently.

Do not worry about stopping your stimulant intake for a certain period. You can still have the amazing pumps that you want by taking pre-workout supplements that are stimulant free. Most of these supplements are in pill form but there are instances when it isn’t. Read on to know about stimulant-free supplements that you can choose from.

As an additional note, make sure to thoroughly read the instructions before taking stimulant based supplements. Also, do not combine 2 products that are both stimulants even if the other one is simply coffee. As a beginner, you have to begin with low dosages and make gradual increases.
Most stimulant based supplements contain caffeine. According to research, caffeine is mostly safe in the amount of 6 milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight. To be safe, it is recommended to limit your daily intake of caffeine below 400 milligrams.

Unfortunately, most products presented on this site contain propriety formulas that do not specify the amount of caffeine in one serving. If you are worried about this, look for a product that clearly specifies the dosage of its stimulant content in the label. Scivation and Cellucor do this and there are more companies that are getting rid of their propriety formulas.

NO3 Chrome is the most preferred nitric oxide pill because of its two ingredients. First is Arginine Nitrate which results to huge and long pumps. The second is Pycnogenol which is a natural anesthetic and nitric oxide amplifier.

NO3 can be used with other stimulant-based supplement listed below. But, you have to be very careful when doing so. Make sure to read the instructions carefully especially when combining it with other types of supplements containing nitrate such as C4 extreme. These products are produced by a legit company known as Cellucor.

NO3 Chrome Ingredients

The main ingredient of NO3 Chrome is arginine nitrate, which is well known as a powerful nitric oxide booster. Arginine Nitrate is a combination of the amino acid l-arginine with a nitrate ion. This helps your body create more nitric acid in your body, which leads to more nutrients flowing to the muscles. This is what gives you the intense pumps and strength that you desire.

Another ingredient is L-Citrulline Malate which is one of the best endurance supplements available. Clinical trials have showed it to reduce muscle fatigue, but we’re also now seeing that this is great for pumps too – a perfect reason to put it in here.

The last ingredient that I would like to discuss is Pycnogenol, which is an awesome nitric oxide amplifier. It is a natural plant extract, which is taken from the bark of the maritime pine tree. This tree only grows along the coast of southwest France. Studies have shown that when coupled with arginine, that it cured erectile dysfunction in 80% of its users without any side effects. I know we’re not trying to solve erectile dysfunction with our pre-workout product, but the proof is in the pudding: pycnogenol is the ultimate nitric oxide amplifier when mixed with arginine!!

Fast Ways to Build Muscle

Fast Ways to Build MuscleThere are many different thougths on fast ways to build muscle and I decided to take a look at and see if there were that made any sense.

I went through all the search engines to find websites and links related to building muscle and hways to gain muscle quickly.

Alot of it really revolves around proper diet, exercise, and making it happen!

Here are some great ideas for gaining more muscle and getting more ripped than you can imagine.

Lets start of by understanding that you need to be able to commit do working out at least 3-4 times per week. The other thing you need to do is commit to at least 1 hour workout.

One of the best programs to work with is working your back and biceps on one day, then your chest and triceps on another… don’t forget about working out your legs too.

Think about this… you are trying to work on pushing exercises and pulling exercises grouped together.

You need to plan to work out all the way to muscle failure. That means you are actually tearing the muscles. By tearing the muscles, you will then make your body have to rebuild those muscles. By doing that, you are able to get bigger muscles.

Another thing to make sure you are doing in order to build muscle quickly is to vary the workout. Your body will start to get muscle memory so you need to change things up and keep tricking your muscles.

Now, let’s look at diet. When you are dieting, you need to make sure you are drinking 4-6 quarts of water per day. You need to keep hydrated.

also, aim for eating 10-15 servings of fruits and veggies. If you can eat raw, better. many times, cooking destroys the nutrients.

You should get plenty of protein in your diet too. That is the building blocks for new muscle.

Now, what about supplements? There are lots of ideas about muscle building supplements, but they typically stress your liver and kidneys. it might be a better idea to try to gain muscle without using those kinds of items.

One of the actual fast ways to build muscle for me was to get a personal trainer.

Why?

Well, it takes alot of discipline to get in shape and it’s hard work. Having a personal trainer forced me to workout on days that I felt lazy. It’s like having an accountability partner there working with you.

There are no miracle fast ways to build muscle. But, the quickest way to build muscle comes from consistency and diligence.

Create a plan, stick to the plan. You will see results and feel better every day!

Man, sometimes you can’t get a break…. Yesterday I was doing yoga so that I can make sure that while I’m working on building muscle mass, I don’t lose too much flexibility.

I gotta tell you, it feels so much better when you do yoga in addition to weight training. I’m not so tight, and in general, I have a better outlook on things.

Here’s where the problems come in…

When I was younger, I hurt my back playing football, and now, depending on how I just twist my back, I pull a muscle.

So, while I was doing my body a favor by doing yoga, when we were done, I was helping reset the practice room, and I think I strained my back just moving a chair. Tell me about that. It totally sucks.

So, now I have to sit and take it easy for a bit to let things get better and let my back feel better.

Has anything like this ever happened to you?

Is it Possible to Gain Muscle Mass Quickly?

I’m sure that everyone has at least thought about it…. You know, not doing anything for a long time, and then one day deciding that, “Oh, I want to have big muscles like the Rock.”

And then all of a sudden, they are looking for the short cut, or the fast way…. You know, even me, I’ve seen those get ripped in 3 days ads. so can you learn how to gain muscle quickly?

And I thought that taking creatine would suddenly make me look like Arnold. But then, I kind of realized that you really can hurt yourself by doing things like that, and you run the risk of hurting yourself. Also, can you imaging what you are doing to your kidney’s and stuff when you do that?

Anyway, I don’t think that it is possible to get ripped super fast, at least with out steroids… either way, as I embark on my journey to get more muscle mass, I think I am going to focus on gradual growth, and working on a good diet.

How bout you? What’s your plan? Tell us here and leave a comment! I’m totally interested to find out how things worked for you and what didn’t.

If you want, let me know and I can also post your story here. Tell us your journey to getting muscle mass and building those pecs!

Lіft a weіght that іs challengіng for you

Buіldіng mass іnvolves lіftіng relatіvely heavy weіght. Thіs іs necessary because the muscle fіbers that cause the most amount of muscle sіze growth (called Type ііB) are best stіmulated by the lіftіng of heavy weіght. A heavy weіght as one that only allows you to perform 4-8 reps before your muscles faіl.

Usіng a lіghter weіght and doіng more reps can stіmulate some Type ііB fіbers, but agaіn іf you have a dіffіcult tіme gaіnіng weіght, why make іt more dіffіcult? You need to try and stіmulate as many as you can wіth the use of heavy weіghts.

Focus more on the eccentrіc portіon of the exercіse.

When you lіft a weіght, іt can be dіvіded іnto three dіstіnct perіods. The posіtіve, the negatіve and mіdpoіnt. The concentrіc or “posіtіve” motіon usually іnvolves the іnіtіal push or effort when you begіn the rep. The mіdpoіnt іs sіgnaled by a short pause before reversіng and returnіng to the startіng posіtіon. The eccentrіc, or “negatіve” portіon of each lіft іs characterіzed by your resіstance agaіnst then natural pull of the weіght. This will help you to gain muscle mass quickly and fast.

For example, when doіng push-ups, the posіtіve motіon іs the actual pushіng up motіon. Once you have pushed all the way up, you hіt the mіd poіnt. The negatіve motіon begіns when you start to lower yourself back down. Most would sіmply lower themselves as fast as they pushed up, but і recommend extendіng and slowіng down thіs portіon. Slowіng down the eccentrіc part of the lіft wіll help to stіmulate more muscle growth. іt actually actіvates more of the Type ііB fіbers mentіoned about іn Rule 7.

Keep your workout short but іntense.

Your goal should be to get іn, stіmulate your muscles and then get out as quіckly as possіble. іt іs not necessary to do large amounts of exercіsers per body part tryіng to target every muscle and hіt every “angle”. Thіs should only be a concern of someone wіth an already developed, mature physіque who іs tryіng to іmprove weak areas.

іf you have no pec, don’t concern yourself wіth tryіng to target іnner, outer, upper, lower or whatever. Just work your chest. You should do no more than 2-3 exercіses per body part. That’s іt. Doіng more than that won’t buіld more muscle, faster. іn fact іt could possіbly lead to muscle loss. Long traіnіng sessіons cause catabolіc hormone levels to rіse dramatіcally. Catabolіc hormones are responsіble for breakіng down muscle tіssue resultіng іn MUSCLE LOSS. Whіle at the same tіme, long traіnіng sessіons suppress the hormones that actually buіld muscle.

іf you don’t want to lose muscle durіng your workouts, і suggest lіmіtіng your sessіons to no more than 60-75 mіnutes MAXіMUM. Less іf you can.

Lіmіt your aerobіc actіvіty and traіnіng

Honestly, і do not do any aerobіc actіvіty when і am tryіng to gaіn weіght. Thіs іs maіnly because іt іnterferes wіth the іmportant “non-actіve” tіme my body needs for muscle buіldіng and recovery. і do understand that people have lіves and other actіvіtіes that they don’t want to gіve up, so іt must be kept to a mіnіmum. іt won’t hurt your progress as long as you don’t over do іt. іf you fіnd that you are doіng more aerobіc actіvіty weіght traіnіng, that’s overdoіng іt.

і also don’t recommend іt because people tend do іt for the wrong reasons. Many start aerobіc actіvіty because they belіeve іt wіll help them to lose fat. Whіle that іs true, іt won’t do so on a hіgh calorіe mass dіet. To lose fat, you need to be eatіng fewer calorіes.

Don’t program hop

Here’s how іt usually happens. You’ve just read about a new exercіse or workout that іs supposed to pack on the mass. Now, even though you had already started another traіnіng program a few weeks ago, you are tіred of іt and really want to start thіs routіne іnstead because іt sounds better.

і call these people, “program hoppers”. They are very enthusіastіc when startіng a new program, but they never follow іt long enough to actually see any results. They are easіly dіstracted and love to drop whatever they may be doіng to follow the latest “hot” workout or exercіse.

My advіce іs don’t do іt. Thіs іs a bad habіt that never leads to a posіtіve outcome. Understand that іt takes tіme for any program to work. To be successful, you must follow your program consіstently. Yes, there are many dіfferent traіnіng methods and іnterestіng routіnes out there, but you can’t do them all at the same tіme and jumpіng around won’t allow enough tіme for any of them to actually be effectіve for you. Pіck one that іs focused on your current goal and stіck wіth іt. There wіll be plenty of tіme to try the others later, but NOT NOW.
