People tend to make muscle building workout tips a lot harder than it should be. I can’t say I blame them. With a plethora of muscle building magazines, stores full of hard to pronounce supplements, and advertisements promoting the latest fitness fad it’s pretty easy to get overwhelmed quickly.
Muscle building workouts require persistence. With the right routine combination, muscles are built in no time. It is important to monitor daily progress per day. Track how much body fat is lost. Combine the right exercises with proper eating. The two complement each other. High intensity workouts are futile if partnered with over eating. Visible muscle results are optimized in eating protein rich foods.
This article will teach you how to set up your perfect muscle building workout schedule. Firstly, a perfect workout means different things to different people. A perfect schedule for a beginner and one for an advanced bodybuilder will be totally different. In This article, I will tell you the difference and how you should start off with a beginner’s workout for better foundations.
Progressively Increase. Systematically increase the difficulty of your workouts to continually challenge your muscles. This means increase weight or repetitions performed (or both) for each workout.
Allow Adequate Time To Rest. Muscles need time to FULLY RECOVER after being subjected to intense stress. Do not work out a single muscle group directly more than twice a week. (Working a muscle group directly only once a week is often the recommended standard)
Limit The Length Of Your Workouts To 60 Minutes Or Less. Prolonged intense physical exertion beyond one hour can lead to increased muscle loss.
Push ups along with a few other simple body exercises such as (body squats and sit ups/crunches) could keep you looking buff in almost any situation (yes, even on a deserted island).More…
Determine Your Daily Muscle Building Calorie Intake Level. There are many advanced formulas to do this. A very basic one is to multiply your body weight by 2 (So if you weigh 140lbs eat around 2800 calories a day)
Consume Plenty Of Protein. Protein is an essential ingredient for muscle building. An old rule of thumb is to consume at least 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight a day (If you weigh 140lbs consume 140g of protein).
Drink A Lot Of Water. It cannot be overemphasized how important water is. For a very basic calculation drink a minimum of your bodyweight in ounces. (If you are 140lbs drink at least 70 ounces a day)
Where off days, indulge in walking exercises to keep momentum going.
