3 Quick Tips for Building Muscle

There are many training programs out there to promote muscle building. While there are a variety of exercises that are used and numerous ways of manipulating sets and reps etc.

However, there are some things that always remain constant:

+ Multi-joint exercises

Ideally you want to make the most of your time in the gym. Why work muscles individually when you can work them all at once.

These types of exercises will work the major muscles of the body and as you are working more muscles, you will find yourself really out of breath.

Some multi-joint exercises are bench press, push-ups, pull-ups, front squats, back squats, overhead squats, deadlifts and lunges.

Core exercises can also be included but these are of secondary importance as your core will be worked anyway while doing the multi-joint exercises.

+ Train 3/ 4 days a week

Instead of going to the gym 5/ 6 days a week and exhausting yourself while also pushing yourself to the point of overtraining.

Try to keep the workouts to 45 minutes and no longer than 1 hour. This is long enough if the program is good enough.
A superset format is also very common in many programs. this is where you do an upper body exercise followed straight away by a lower body exercise.

+ Eat properly

All the training in the world won't do you much good if your diet isn't good enough. Get rid of all the the processed foods and sugar from your diet.

The protein your getting should really come from your diet in the form of nuts, fruit, veg, meats, eggs and dairy.

You should also try and go easy on the supplements as most of them are overrated anyway. Any fitness magazine you read will be full of supplement's when in reality a proper diet would be much more beneficial.
