Build Muscle

build muscleTo build muscle is not an overnight process, and will take effort, but serious muscle gains can be seen in a matter of a few weeks if done correctly, and without the need for pills or other drugs. Probably the best way to build muscle fast is by changing your diet so that you eat more quantity and more often. 3 square meals a day just doesn’t cut it I’m afraid, since there is too much of a gap between meals resulting in your body searching for and using your muscle tissue as a source of energy, effectively stunting your muscle growth – this is particularly true for muscle gainers .

Before starting any muscle building regime it’s important that stop in with your doctor. Get a full physical and they can also recommend a muscle building diet. You may have underlying health reasons why you should not vigorously try to build muscle, so making sure that your healthy before you build muscles through exercise and diet just makes common sense.

The best approach for getting ripped  muscle is to stick with the basic compound exercises such as, bench press, squats, deadlifts, barbell curls etc. Use lower reps and just a few heavy sets with such exercises as they place an enormous demand on the central nervous system and the body needs sufficient time to recover after performing them.

Single reps are great for strength and often used by powerlifters. Even regular weight lifters and bodybuilders can benefit from the muscle building power of single rep training as they can also build lots of muscle mass. However, in order to stimulate growth volume is also needed and a program that combines both types of training periodically will lead to greater overall gains.


The human body is an amazing machine. It is tremendously adaptive. We can use this ability to adapt to help build muscle fast. The goal in weight training is to tear down your muscles. Choose a weight that puts the proper load on your muscles and they will adapt by growing back bigger and stronger. The proper load will cause your muscles to slightly tear and weaken. Muscles repair and grow stronger while resting after your workout. Doing the proper number of sets and repetitions while weight training is a key to learning how to build muscle fast. Too little stress on the muscles will lead to little increase in muscle mass. Too much stress on the muscles will also lead to disappointing results.

To burn fat and build muscle at the same time is to approach them as one. You don’t need to just focus on eliminating food elements in your diet that you believe will be able you to lose those excess weight. You need to opt for whole clean foods that provide a good balance of essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fiber, and fats that will burn fat build muscle. Go for lean protein and healthy fats will trigger a thermogenic effect in your body that causes it to consume more energy during the digestion process of these foods.
