Little Known Muscle Building Information

Marketing hype makes muscle building information a commodity. Rather than to simply inform, available resources and information is twisted and manipulated at will to sell. What is in this scenario? Sales pitch will steer you away from the most important things you should know about muscle building.

There are three simple things you need to know about muscle building: proper nutrition, effective training and timely intervals of rest. Remove the hype and everything that makes up the majority of information available and you are left with these three.

Proper nutrition allows the body to grow in the midst of our training. During training while we are lifting weights and putting our body to constant stress in specific repetitions and / or duration, we are urging our body to build more muscles convincing it that we need to do so. But at the same time, we need to let our body believe that it has what it takes to have these muscles up and running. We do this by eating right and being focused in eating food that matters. Not only we have to “trick” our body in these two separate directions, we must also give it time to respond properly. And we do this by resting. Only when the body is not doing anything that it begins to repair damaged and worn muscles during training, in the process building it up and increasing its strength and volume.

Proper diet boils down to food we should and should not eat. Junk foods, candies and soda drinks should have no place in our daily intake. We could not get wrong with green leafy vegetables and fruits. Get rid of the skin and layers of fat in meat. We want to gain muscles (and weight) but not get fat and heavy.

We need to get more of compound exercises that works more than one muscle group. We could never get wrong with squats, bench press and military press.

And we need to take a break. Muscles grow when we rest and not when we are sweating it out at the gym.

Muscle building information is openly available. But hunt down those that matters, and not those that merely sells.

Building Muscle – Beginners Information

Building muscle is probably the most effective and efficient way to lose weight, stay in shape and enjoy fitness. The reason why is because muscle tissue needs to be fed, it needs to be nourished. As a consequence it increases your metabolism enabling your body to literally devour everything you eat. Imagine muscle tissue as a voracious appetite consuming everything your body needs. Muscle tissue works even while you are not. For example, although a bit extreme, picture this scenario: two friends watching the Super Bowl; one of them is in great shape, he has developed a strong, healthy, muscular frame and is eating a bag of potato chips. The other guy carries his fair share of extra weight–and then some–and is walking around the room while the two are watching the game. The difference? The guy on the couch, eating the bag of potato chips, is burning more calories than his friend! Why? Because his muscles are devouring the energy stored in his fat cells! Sounds incredible? There is more truth to it than you think.

So, how do you build muscle? Building typically involves weight training. The goal of weight training is to lift as much weight close to your maximum limit as many times as possible. Pushing the muscles past their limits causes them to adapt and grow. The key is to increase the weight over time and induce hypertrophy, or in other words, “build muscle.”

When you lift weights or do any kind of anaerobic exercise, your body naturally releases endorphins, which gives you a little “high.” Every single person I have ever trained with says the same thing: the euphoric feeling they get after a workout makes them feel so good it is addicting. You will find that it leaves such a pleasurable sensation mentally and physically that you will actually CRAVE a good workout.

A note or word of caution is in order here: If you are new to weightlifting you need to remember that starting out fresh will leave your very sore at first. This is normal, your body and muscles are not use to this new discipline and requirement. However, after a brief time, your body adapts quickly and the soreness associated with workouts disappears. In fact, you soon won’t experience soreness at all, instead you will feel confidence, determination, and a feeling of “can do” in about everything you attempt. Exercise is such a wonder.

So, how long until you begin to see a difference? You can literally see a difference in as little as two weeks; a significant difference in your appearance and mental attitude in as little as six weeks; and a MAJOR difference overall in as little as twelve weeks. Keep at it for three or four months and you will be well on your way to a completely different life.

What are you waiting for?! A whole new life is waiting for you.
