There are so many people who visit gyms trying to make their bodies better, however, some of them limit their muscle growth by doing serious mistakes. In this article, I decided to write about 3 main principles that you should follow if you want to achieve good results. These principles will help you avoid training mistakes and maximize your results.
First of all, many people think that fitness is all about lifting weights. The truth is, that this sport does not require 1 hour per day that you spend in the gym, this sport requires 24 hours each day because muscle growth is a result of:
- hard training
- good diet
If you manage to combine all 3 elements together, you will see awesome results.
There are so many workout programs nowadays that it is very difficult to choose the right one. If you are a beginner, you should stick to heavy complex exercises such as squats, deadlifts and bench press. Your workout should be based on these exercises. To be short, you should do 1 base exercise and 1-2 additional exercises for big muscle groups (chest, legs, back). The more does not mean the better. Always remember that while choosing a workout routine.
After heavy workout you should provide your muscles with building materials to recover muscles. I am talking about protein and carbohydrates. You should consume about 2-3 grams of protein per 1 kg body weight to see good results. Some people recommend taking more protein, some recommend taking less, however, I always see good results with 2g per 1kg body weight and never recommend more. Do not forget about carbohydrates. In fact, the proportion of protein to carbohydrates should be 1:4. Check out this url (http://jackedgorilla.com/best-weight-mass-gainer) for more information about protein supplements that could be used for building muscles.
If you think that muscles grow during workout you are terribly wrong. Muscles grow while you sleep that is why you should give your body enough time to recover from heavy workout and grow muscles. Usually, 7-8 hours is enough. If you want to maximize your results, it is recommended to take slow digesting protein such as soy protein or egg protein before going to bed.
As you see, there is nothing difficult in the concept of building muscles. Never forget about these 3 principles and you will have the body you have been always dreaming about. I wish you good luck on your way to six pack abs and big biceps!
