Bodybuilding - Muscle Gain and Nutrition Rules

What is Building Muscle?

Before you go and hammer down some weights in the gym, it is important to understand how your body actually builds muscle. Once you understand how your body functions, you can use this information to design your workout routine to achieve fantastic results.

Building muscle has always been a priority of humans going back to days we stepped onto this earth. We have always wanted to become bigger, faster, stronger, and more attractive. Face it, part of the reason we want to build muscle is to become more physically attractive, right? It is certainly one of the core foundations of out life and the history of the world.

Unfortunately, building muscle is one of the most daunting and challenging tasks that the human body will ever accomplish. Let’s break it down step by step. Everyone knows that you build muscle by working out. But lifting weights and exercising by itself does not actually build muscle.

Rather, it breaks down muscle. However, this stimulates a response in your body to repair your muscles. The muscle fibers repair themselves and actually build the fibers back bigger and stronger than before. The end result is more muscle.

To build muscle, you have to find a routine and stick to it. Your routine should consist of warming up the muscles, working out, and then having a cool-down period. Focus on one core muscle group per day (such as arms, legs, abs, etc.).

Make sure to give these muscle groups a few days rest after your workout! This rest period is critical because it allows your muscle fibers to regrow and rebuild themselves stronger than they were before.

After a while, you will notice that by consistently working out, you’ll be able to see a physical difference. You’ll be able to look in the mirror and see that your arms have gotten a little bigger or that your body looks more toned.

What a great feeling! When you can see the results in the mirror, it can encourage you to eat better and live healthier. Building muscle is a great way to improve your overall health.

Before your next workout, make sure to take the time to think about how your body actually builds muscle. Focus on lifting or exercising hard, but be sure to give your body a much needed rest! Allow your muscles to repair themselves and grow larger than before. If you stick to your program, you will start to see great results!

Needless to say, when word of these ‘wonder-products’ leaked out men everywhere went crazy over them and their popularity simply exploded! Understandably, our readers have also been going mad over them too and why wouldn’t they?
