Weight Gain Tips for Muscle Building

Muscle need fuel to grow. And to the frustration of skinny guys everywhere, its very difficult to put on massive arms and chest size with a start weight of about 120 pounds. Some people simply find it very difficult to put on weight. this can be ascribed to either genetics or having a very fast metabolism. The prospective bodybuilder should be wary of weight gain pills and powders, which can lighten your wallet without any corresponding increase in the weight scale. Weight gain is not just about putting on fat. After all, weight gain in fat is not the goal, the goal is to gain muscle.

Quick metabolisms are generally to quick to store much fat away in any case, the key is eating properly and working out properly as well. Protein is necessary to build muscle, so a diet heavy in meats in a good idea. There are many protein shakes out there, but considering the cost and flavor, most of us would probably enjoy a few steaks better. That said, nutrient supplements are a good idea to maximize your workout potential Building muscle is chiefly a hormonal event. The principle hormone involved is testosterone. One of the surest ways of increasing your testosterone levels is through intake of fats. Trans fats, saturated fats, all contribute to the production of testosterone.

So, the key is, eat more. Especially when starting out on an exercise routine, it is very important to eat more than you are accustomed to. This can be very difficult, but persistence in achieving your goal is critical for success. This shall pass, as the appetite grows considerably when someone exercises regularly and more so when once your digestive system is used to processing more food. Bear in mind it is not just about more calories, its about eating more frequently, as when going without food for long periods of time the body will start breaking down muscle tissue for energy.

Its not just about eating right. Its not commonly know that it is better to work out more infrequently, 2 or 3 times a week rather than 4 or 6. In those workouts, it is better to keep it as short as intense as possible, with between 5 and 6 reps of the heaviest weight you can carry. The days in between are best served storing energy and letting the body build off of its last workout.
