Why Most Guys Can't Build Muscle In The Gym

By Russ Howe

If you're a guy, you've probably wondered how to build muscle at some point. So why is it that most men never get the results they desire in the gym? Today we'll answer this question for you.

The next time you're in your local gym take a look around the free weights section. You'll see a variety of characters which populate the majority of gyms around the world. By that, of course, we mean guys who enjoy throwing the weights around but don't seem to be getting anywhere with their results. After today you'll never become part of that crowd.

What's more, all of today's steps are completely free.

The first thing we'd like to bring to your attention is your diet. It's great having the dream of building your body into a head-turning mountain of muscle and it's good to have the dedication to hit the gym very often, but if you neglect your diet you will not see a positive return on your efforts.

There is so much nonsense and hype out there about nutrition, largely down to the massive range of supplements all competing for your purchase each month, that many people are led to believe it's too confusing to sort out their nutrition plan. It's not, and we're going to show you how to do it today. Are you ready for step one?

Establishing your daily calorie figure is very straightforward. The key to successful dieting is avoiding the bad habit of calorie counting, we'll show you how to set a daily ballpark figure and you should use it as a loose target. To do this, simply take your desired body weight in pounds and multiply the number by fifteen.

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

There are various other factors which need to be address too and we will briefly cover the most important points next.

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.

The arena of supplements has become an ever popular one over the last decade and we'd like to discuss this with you now to keep you on the straight and narrow, so to speak. It is quite easy to get lost in today's market, every product claims to work wonders and be the best thing ever invented. Never put too much emphasis on a supplement.

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.
