Build New Muscle Fast
Just like losing weight, building new muscle can be a challenge.
Roadblocks and plateaus happen to the best of us, and weight training is no exception.
But no matter where you’re at, there are 3 things you can do today to build new muscle fast. These are the most basic – and most effective – methods I’ve learned as a personal trainer. So when in doubt, turn to these tips.
3 Tips to Build New Muscle Fast
1. Get Intense – The first and most important rule is that you need to continuously take things to the next level. Your muscles will get bored and eventually stop producing results, so change it up, and hit it hard.
And the options are endless. Try changing things up by varying the order and timing of your resistance training workouts or add new routines. Increasing the weight alone can have a huge impact, or give supersets, drop sets, or 21s a try. Any change, even minor, will wake up your muscles and get them looking pumped fast.
2. Eat More Protein – Consuming high amounts of protein and a variety of amino acids is essential to building new muscle fast (and also burning more fat). Proteins are the building blocks for your muscles. The general rule of thumb is to eat a gram to two grams of protein per pound of body weight to support muscle growth – so eat up!
Increase protein naturally in your diet by eating more eggs, fish, dairy products, beans and lentils, and lean meats like chicken. For you women reading this article, there is no exception to the rule. If you fear packing on any bulk don’t because firstly you don’t have the hormones required for adding tons of bulk and it takes a lot of weight and dedication for you to get all muscly.
Furthermore, to ensure adequate amounts of protein, I also recommend a tasty whey protein supplement like the chocolate milk flavor of Gaspari Nutrition Myofusion. This protein powder will keep you and your muscles feeling satisfied and pumped up for longer. Another great option is Promax Protein Bars for protein-rich snacks on the go.
Branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s), like those in Scivation Xtend, also contribute to muscle growth and recovery. Add one scoop of Xtend or the latest popular BCAA Muscle Pharm Recon to your protein shake and you’ll get faster recovery and better results. You may be skeptical of some supplements but whey and BCAA’s can really help you tone and build muscle fast.
3. Get Proper Rest – No matter what your muscle building goals are, you need to get adequate rest. Resistance training can put a lot of strain on your body and deplete your natural resources. So make sure you’re getting adequate recovery time between workouts. You can ensure this by not working the same muscle group 2 days in a row.
Adequate sleep is also needed for proper muscle recovery. To ensure you’re getting the rest you need, try taking Top Secret Nutrition Sleep before bed. Another amazing supplement is Shut-Eye, which not only helps improve sleep but also gives your muscles the proper nutrients for night-time repair.
