Hasn’t it happened to you that you have been training for months or years, following a discipline and daily routine to get that burly body that you aspire to achieve? But despite your effort, you feel that you have only a quarter of the way traveled. While your teammates in the gym have made greater progress despite taking the same time as you or less training. The reason that they manage to get muscle mass and you do not (or not at least at the same rate). It may be due to the factors that we will expose in this entry.
When you start a workout, always, ALWAYS. It must be complemented with other customs in your day to day. Muscles do not grow by inhaling or exhaling oxygen. Nor how intense your training is, but more a balance between your exercise routine, food and rest. It is enough that one fails for you to see how the results last longer, and therefore you do not get the most out of the training you are carrying out.
Knowing this, we want to tell you that if you really want to get muscle mass. The first step to take will be to read this entry in its entirety. We assure you that the information will be worth gold.
However, if it is not of your interest to read the content of this post, you can always choose to read another entry, such as “What is the best time to go to the gym”.
The importance of resting to get muscle mass.
Sleeping or resting a lot is usually associated with laziness, idleness or laziness. While it is a trait that is present in lazy individuals, the truth is that it should also be included a good few hours of rest for those who train. The reason is mostly to allow your muscles to replenish themselves and create new muscle tissue. Not to mention, that greatly helps prevent muscle tears or some kind of muscle spasm by not allowing your muscles to recompose properly.
It is advisable to sleep at least nine (9) hours a day. And complement them with an extra hour and a half (if you have the time) in the afternoon, just before the snack or after training (In case you train in the afternoon).
Sleeping after an arduous workout in the gym will help you avoid tiredness and muscle fatigue. Leaving your muscles ready for the next day’s routine.
Complement the training with a correct diet.
We know that at this point the issue of proper nutrition is repeated ad nauseam. And I have even come across people and comments on the internet commenting on how heavy it is usually with the issue of diets. However, you must understand that this is not said for the purpose of annoying the reader, on the contrary. If it is mentioned so much it is precisely because it has great relevance and effectiveness in terms of training.
In the case of those who seek to gain muscle mass, you have to keep in mind that they need to put together a diet whose focus is the consumption of protein. Or rather, the acquisition of it in our food.
Protein allows our cells to regenerate or create new tissues in our body. So, when subjecting the muscle to weight training (This will be mentioned later). It expands and after rest these “Spaces” must be filled with new muscle tissue. Which will only be created if our body has enough protein provided by our diet. It is for this reason that it is important to complement your training with a good diet. Well, only then will you be able to achieve muscle mass efficiently.
An intense training at the tip of weight.
Exercise can be worked on in a variety of ways. In fact, each type of exercise can be managed with a few variants. What gives rise to cardio exercises, worked with tension or those that we will discuss today … Exercises depending on weight.
As it is objective is to get muscle mass. In your training you should not focus on how many repetitions you can do of an exercise. But how much weight you can subject to your muscles to get them to expand (Gain strength). In these cases, it is better to focus on your series being approximately three per exercise, following a circuit where each time you increase the weight a little more. Example…
- First series: 10 kilos.
- Second series: 12 kilos.
- Third series: 14 kilos.
Following this example in each series you would be lifting more weight than in the previous one, this obviously you must adapt according to the exercise and muscle you are working. Well, you should not risk injury by subjecting your body to an excessive load.
If you take into account what has been said, rest assured that you will get muscle mass in the most efficient way possible. If you like our content, we invite you to stop by “How to Avoid Injuries in the Gym”.
