4 Tips To Remember On Building Muscles

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 274

There are a lot of programs out there that can help you build muscles. Each of them has its own trainings and procedures on how to do it. Most of what we see in the advertisements is true but not all of the information they give us is helpful. Not all guides they give are compatible with your body. There is always a definite set of workouts, tips and guides that is right for you.

There are 4 tips to remember when building muscles.

1. EAT. When you want to build muscles, we do not recommend you to go on a diet. If you want your body to bulk up then eat foods that will make your body bigger and larger. Eat heavy breakfast, lunch and dinner. You have to eat more to gain more. Eat foods rich in protein such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy. If you are a vegetarian then you should eat whole foods. Whole foods are foods rich in carbohydrates. Eat veggies, fruits and fat rich foods. Being a vegetarian isn't bad but if you want to build muscles then you should double up or triple up the amount of food you eat in one meal.

2. DRINK. Drink at least two glasses of water in every meal. If you are not fond of just water then you can replace it with fruit juices in each meal but at least try to have a glass of water in each meal. I recommend you to at least drink 10 glasses of water and fruit juices every day. Avoid drinking sodas and carbonated drinks. I also recommend you to drink milk at least two glasses in a day. One for breakfast and one before going to sleep.

3. EXERCISE. Engage yourself in strength training. Start with a light workout then slowly adjust your training into a more intensive training regularly. If you think you can do the training easily then shift to the heavier one. Use weights, dumbbells are helpful in this but you should stay away from machines. Why do we stay away from machines? That is because machines cannot control balance for you. You should use free weights so you yourself can control on how far you can go. Try to do compound exercises. Do not forget to do curl ups. Curl ups make your arm muscles stronger and bigger. Do pull ups, chin ups and squats. This will make your whole body work for better strength. Do these exercises about three or four times per week. It should be one hour per exercise.

4. REST. Allow your body to rest at least two or three times in a week. Schedule your training days and rest days. Resting allows your muscles to regain their energy and will also make them grow. Sleep at least 8 hours a day. Never cut yourself from giving enough time to rest.

Follow these tips on building muscles and try to do it regularly. Never try to cheat on yourself since when you cheat on yourself; you will not achieve the product that you want to have.
