Foods For Muscle Weight Gain

The Top Ten Low-Budget, Muscle-Building Foods For Muscle Weight Gain

If you have been trying to gain muscle for any length of time, you have probably figured out that training is only half of the equation. For quality muscle weight gain, you must take in more calories than you burn, with a significant portion of them coming from protein. This large food intake can be a huge drain on your wallet, especially when you already have monthly gym dues on your list of bodybuilding expenses. Here are ten, nutrient-dense, muscle-building foods that will help you get the protein and calories you need for muscle weight gain without breaking the bank.

1. Eggs 
With 5-6 grams of both protein and fat in each little egg, and with prices as low as a dollar per dozen in some grocery stores, this is a muscle weight gain food that cannot be beat. If you're in serious need of calories to grow, you would do well to eat the whole egg. The yolk contains healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, half of the egg's protein, and several essential amino acids and vitamins that you will not find in the white.

Building Big Muscles With Cable Workouts

When it comes to building muscles, it is vital that one changes his routine from time for time. I have changed my own routine many times over the years in order to continue making the most progress possible. If you do not change your routine and add variety to your workouts you will reach a plateau and quit making progress. As stated in other articles of mine, your muscles need to be "shocked" or "surprised" into making new growth because they will adapt to the "same old thing" and feel no need to adjust due to no new demands being placed on them. Thus, they will not continue to grow and become stronger.

Cable Workouts

One of the methods you can adopt to get past a plateau is to perform cable workouts for the upper body. Though I do not recommend cable workouts year-round, I do recommend that you switch to cable workouts from time to time. However, I suggest that you use "free weights" for the majority of the year.
