Eating right to build muscle fast
Muscle is made in the kitchen, not in the gym! Perhaps this isn’t 100% true but it is vital that you are eating correctly to get the body that you want. You need to start reading labels, if you don’t do this already and actually learning about what foods you are putting into your body. Protein should become your new best friend, you need approximately one gram of protein for each pound that you weight. So if you are 160 pounds, you need 160 grams of protein daily to gain the muscle like you want to. Cut out junk food and takeaways as much as possible, but don’t be afraid to ingest lots of good food.
Limit your cardio
Cardio is fine but it isn’t what you should be doing if you want to gain muscle (you aren’t trying to get smaller, remember!) Limit your cardio to around twice a week and no more than 30 minutes at a time.
Lift, lift and lift some more
Of course you need to lift weights to gain muscle, but ensure you work your whole body and push yourself as far as you can go. Don’t jump straight into lifting heavy weights, you should be increasing the weight – the stronger you become. Don’t be afraid to get yourself a trainer and learn from other guys in the gym, it’s the only way that you will improve. Lift a maximum of 5 times a week, your muscles do need time to repair themselves. Every 6 weeks or so, you should change up something in your routine. This could be the amount of time you are spending on your muscles, or adding a few different exercises. This change will keep your body guessing, which will leave you looking even more ripped.
