Why Guys Struggle To Build Muscle

The vast majority of male gym users have asked for tips on how to build muscle at some stage or another. For some reason it’s rare to see a man that actually achieves the physique he wants and today we’re going to reveal why so many of us get lost in the shuffle.

Walk into any fitness center and you will see the same characters struggling away day after day, month after month to no results. Sure, it’s fun to train with weights but ultimately you want results for your efforts, right? Today we’ll set you on your way.

Better still, none of them will cost you anything and you can apply them all right now.

If you don’t know how to build muscle today’s interview will assist you a lot.

The first step to building a better body starts in the kitchen at home, not in the gymnasium. Before you head off for your next workout try to set some time to one side and allow yourself to write up an eating plan. By ensuring your nutrition is geared towards building the type of physique you’re striving for physically you will make your journey far easier.

Sadly, most men (and women, for that matter) do exactly that. One of the top excuses for this being that working out your diet can be confusing. This is simply not true, it’s far easier to set up a solid, goal orientated eating plan. The confusion arises because of the amount of hype and quick fix solutions people see on a daily basis, telling them they need to buy certain plans or products in order to get results.

It is very easy to work out how many calories per day you need to eat to achieve a certain goal with your body. In terms of building a bigger physique a great method is to take your desired body weight in pounds and multiply by 15.

That daily calorie target is a very achievable and solid ball park figure.

Of course, diet is not the only important thing when it comes to building a better body. Now we’ll look at some other contributing factors.

First of which is your sleeping routine. If you fail to get a good night’s sleep you are missing out on results. The release of growth hormone occurs while you sleep but if you are only getting a couple of hours each night you are missing out, as it occurs once you hit a deep sleep. When people recommend you get eight hours per night it’s not just for comfort but results, too.

When you’re looking at supplements you may be tempted to make the same mistake hundreds of thousands of other guys make and get caught up in all of the exciting sales packaging and marketing talk you see on the products today. With every supplement claiming to be the answer to all of your problems, it’s easy to see why a lot of people place too much importance on them.

Whey protein and creatine have by far the most research to back up their scientific advantages so it’s definitely worthwhile adding them to your diet, but try to keep your supplements to a minimum.

The simple points in today’s video post will teach you the fundamental basics of how to build muscle and retain it forever. It’s time to get started. By the time you’re ready for your next gym session you should be equipped with a fountain of new confidence.
