Build More Muscle Mass And Strength Without Supplements


Who should use this method to build muscle quickly?


If you're serious about your fitness or weight loss, you hate the idea that you're not making the most of every workout. For those of us with long work-days and kids, there's no time or physical energy to waste. We have to make every drop of sweat worth the work.

Build Muscle Mass


I'm going to show you how to build more muscle in less workout time. Keep in mind that this method is meant for people who want to build muscle mass and pure strength.

Now, what is your key to building muscle quickly? I mean, say I really want to bulk up in a week. How can I do this?


The key to more muscle mass out of every workout is to lift enough weight to cause muscle failure in only a 3-5 reps (repetitions of the movement). Rather than burning calories and creating lean muscle by doing many reps with lighter weights, you're taking just a bit of time to literally tear your muscle fibers apart, preparing them to build mass and strength when they receive protein from your next meal.

I've heard that it's good to eat directly after exercise. What do you do?


You must eat right after your workout. Not only will this quench your muscles' thirst for proteins, but it will help maximize your metabolism. An efficient metabolism comes in handy when you do cardio exercises, since your body is already working at high speed to burn the calories you have stored.

What Foods Should I Eat In My Post-Workout Meals?


Your meal after the workout should be high in protein from foods such as lean meats, protein shakes, liquid protein supplements, and others containing minimal fat content. Don't forget the carbs though. Make sure you include a normal, healthy source for carbohydrate such as fruit or vegetables, and even a whole-grain bread.

A Good Diet for Building Muscle


Diet for Building Muscle

When you want to build muscle, you must eat a proper diet. A complete, balanced diet will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to grow and accommodate the expansion of muscles so that you can achieve that Michelangelo-sculpted body you've always dreamed about.

A proper diet will consist of a balance of the recommended servings of each of the food groups, with an emphasis on protein-based foods. Building muscle requires a massive amount of protein, as protein is the main cornerstone for developing muscle.

Protein can be obtained from several different foods, so you don't have to eat something you don't like! It can be found in numerous vegetables, meats, fish, and also can be obtained in drinks such as milk, and other dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. There is also a product called whey protein, which comes in powder form and can be mixed into any of your favorite drinks (healthy ones though!), water, fruit smoothies, or just about anything else.

For meats, lean meats are the best way to go. Poultry such as chicken and turkey are among the best. One of my favorites is turkey pepperoni, it is much lower in fat and is overall healthier than pork pepperoni. It also is higher in protein, so it will benefit your muscle building much more.

Fish is also a great source of nutrients. Tuna is a favorite among many bodybuilders. Salmon and walleye are a couple others. Be sure, however, that you do not eat them deep-fried, as that will be detrimental to your body, and will affect your gaining of muscle mass.

Protein can also be found in many vegetables, so you do not have to eat meat constantly. I personally think that it is not healthy to eat meat constantly, and a good amount of vegetables is necessary to build muscle properly. Leafy green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and romaine lettuce are great for building a healthy body. Have you ever seen the show Popeye? There is some truth to his having massive muscles from eating spinach.

And, as I said earlier, there also are protein-concentrated products that can be mixed into a milkshake-like drink, or into any food. One of my favorites is chocolate-flavored. It is easy to mix and can be drunk just after or right before a work out.
