The Top Muscle Building Tips – Part 2

Have you been making use of the great tips in part one of our muscle building guide? Well here comes part 2 for you to get torn into and improve your workouts.

  1. Make sure you get enough rest. Around 8 hours a night and a few naps should help your body get the rest it needs to recover and build muscle.
  2. If you have been looking into the best food to eat you might also want to learn a bit of cooking. The better your food tastes the more likely you are to stick to your diet.
  3. It might seem strange for people that have a heavy gym routine but you need to make sure you take in your calorie targets. Sometimes adding some olive oil or butter to your veggies will help to boost it and even make things taste better.
  4. Another great way to reach your calorie goals is by drinking more milk and adding sour cream or cheese to your meals. You can also snack on things like almonds or nuts.
  5. If you are new to things don’t kid yourself on that your muscles will get used to a certain set of reps. This takes a while so trying to ‘confuse’ your muscles is not something you need to worry about.
  6. Evolve your workout, don’t change it unnecessarily. See what’s working and what isn’t and tweak it rather than making wholesale changes.
  7. If you are going to take supplements make sure you know what it is, how it will help and that it is not a waste of time.
  8. Reading advice (even this) can be helpful but you need to combine it with advice from people who have experience to make sure you get the best.
  9. Remember that the same things don’t necessarily work for everyone. Any workout tips you get should be monitored to see how they benefit you and tweaked if they aren’t getting the desired results.
  10. Gentle weight progression will help your body acclimatise and get used to what you are doing. Before long you will have improved your weights across the board.
  11. Don’t be afraid to eat some fatty foods, it’s not all bad and your body needs it.
  12. Don’t become a robot. Give yourself a bit of fun in regards to your diet and put aside maybe 10% for food you really enjoy.
  13. Don’t ignore cardio, 3 times a week should be a good amount to keep you fighting fit and healthy.
