How To Build Muscle - The Facts Explained

By Russ Howe

As a Fitness Instructor I know that most people who use the gym are lost. For guys, the main problem is they want to know how to build muscle but they don't know where to ask. Today we're going to reveal to you the top proven methods for packing on some lean muscle mass in no time.

Let us begin by assuring you it isn't as hard as if sounds.

Too many people are hasty in the gym and, in a bid for quick results, they overlook the most important factors in favor of spending their hard earned cash on unnecessary aids which don't do anything for them in terms of results.

There are five rules which, if you apply them correctly and stick to them, will have you turning heads at your local fitness center and have every guy in the gym wondering what on Earth you're doing to get continuous results.

* Your diet should be tailored to building muscle.

* Get the basics of supplements down before you get lost.

* Workout to hit your hypertrophy zone.

* Learn the importance of rest days.

* Sleep is just as important as rest.

The five principles above basically detail how to get the body you may have always wanted. Follow them, set them at the foundation of your workout regime and reap the results for years to come. You can do more, of course, which will be discussed in future videos. But for now the basics will enable you to stop the plateau you're currently sitting in and push forward once more.

So let's look at some of the principles in a bit more depth to enable you to get the most from them all...

You'll probably be shocked to realize how easy it is to work out your diet. It is often over complicated needlessly. Simply take your chosen body weight target, in pounds, and multiply the figure by 15. This will give you a target muscle building calorie goal to aim for every day. That was simple, wasn't it? Let's move on.

When it comes to bodybuilding supplements it is even easier to get lost. There is a lot of money to be made here for companies, so they try their best to tell you their new formula is the greatest thing ever made. This often leads to the market looking soaked, with every product claiming to be the one you need the most. The truth is you can get incredibly far with the absolute basics as far as supplements go. Pack in a good whey protein, couple it with a creatine monohydrate product and you are good to go, my friend.

Next you have to build your workout plan. Again, this is a lot easier than most people end up making it out to be. Keep the main focus, in terms of exercises, on the big compound movements which make it far easier to build muscle mass and strength. So you should be performing Bench Presses, Squats, Deadlifts and so on. As for reps you just need to ensure you fall into the hypertrophy zone, which means each set calls for 8-12 repetitions. If you feel like you could blast past 12 increase the weight for the following set.

In the next article we will cover some more of the principles explaining how to build muscle so you can begin getting great, long lasting results from your tough efforts in the gym.
