For some reason man is addicted to instant food, instant wife (off the internet), instant money and even instant happiness. Who can blame us? The world we live in today is fast. Failing to catch up entails grave consequences.
This mindset is shared in the world of body building. It has become a trend nowadays not for the sport of it (as it was originally) but for the health and wellness benefits it gives to those who pursue it with fervor.
So just how do you build muscles fast? In body building, fast is measured in months, even years. The ingredient worth looking into is consistent growth. Only in this premise muscle mass increase is accelerated.
First thing to do is to have a well balanced diet with the sheer intent to maximize nutrition. You just can not afford to eat anything and everything. Each food must count and actively there to facilitate muscle growth. A diet rich in saturated fat is a no-no. Always have two options of the same food. Take for example, egg yolk vs. egg white, brown sugar vs. the white one, coconut oil vs. olive oil and etc. Choose the healthier one. If you are determined enough, you will be able to find choices in every food category.
Think and plan the training you want and need. Make sure that the exercises and routines you do in your work out are those that guarantee results. Squats have always been used by body builders for the very reason that it works many muscles in every thrust.
Make sure that you are well rested in between intervals of training. Over training is a risk every body builder is aware of. But it seems it gets the best of them all the time. The process of building muscles comes from stress and rest. When the muscles are pushed to the limit, there is wear and tear. This “damage” must be repaired first, thus the increased muscle mass. Without the rest, you will start another cycle of your training not gaining anything from your previous work out. That is absolutely not “fast”.
Build a habit of overall fitness. Target the basics of muscle building. Eat right, train well, and rest adequately. If you want it fast, be slow and sure to follow these fundamental elements.
