    Tips for building muscle?

    Post by Slarg232 on Wed Dec 26, 2012 2:27 am

    Hey all, I found out that I got my Freshman Fifteen today, though it was actually more of a Freshman Thirty:(

    So I'm looking to build some muscles. Any tips for it? I wouldn't mind taking the GNC stuff, but I don't exactly like the idea of those things. Is there anything natural that can increase muscle gain other than you're standard proteins? I'm allergic to Nuts, so those are out sad

    If you don't mind spending the money, get both Insanity and P90X. Do Insanity for 60 days so you can trim down and get really toned at the same time. Once you're done with that, do 90 days of P90X to help yourself start building more muscle. After you're done with both you can decide if you'd like to build more muscle. If so, join a gym.

    If you'd rather not spend too much money, then I suggest running for a while to trim down and then to look up muscle building tips on YouTube.

    Eat a lot, but not too unhealthy.

    Number 1) Do NO fad Exercise routines or just about any that are for sale. The fact is that they are not optimised for you and for what you want to gain. Starting strength is a consideration if you want muscle gains, but bear in mind it takes no consideration to aesthetics, just lean gain and strength improvements.

    Number 2) Oily Fish, white meat, Lean red meat, Eggs, ANY seeds, and if need be supplements such as protein whey will all provide the required amounts. For gains you're looking for at least 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight, which will cover exercises an provide resources for musclke growth.

    Number 3) Routines should be customised and yet should work out the whole body. Cardio is optional for weight gains, but I would highly recommend it. For examples, I can provide you with some images of basic patterns you'll want to start with, providing different levels of exercise as you progress.

    Don't expect quick results, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, do NOT forget to keep figures and measurements of your workouts and your progress. It will help you so much it's near unbelievable, as it allows you to modify and change as your body does.

    You need any help with it, shoot me a PM. I used to work in personal training for others, and Physiology was a major part of my education, so I should be able to answe any questions you have.
