The Nutrients Direct Guide to Effective Muscle Building

Our guide to effective muscle building can be an extremely valuable tool to help you reach your fitness goals. If you have been struggling to put on more muscle, the following guide can help you to determine where you have gone wrong, or provide you with valuable information to put you on the right track once more.

The Key Is Adding Weight

When you want to get results from your training, you will need to add more weight during your training to ensure your muscles actually get a challenge. However, there are some basic rules you must adhere to when training, because some common mistakes could hinder your muscle gains.

First of all, do not confuse your muscles by changing your exercises too frequently. In order to see and feel your progress, you will need to stick to a pre-determined exercise plan for a certain period of time. If you change your weight exercises too soon, results will not show at all!

Another important factor to take into consideration during your training is not to overwork your muscles. If you train too rigorously in the hope of getting quick results, you actually damage your muscles. Instead of muscle mass, you will gain severe muscle soreness and sometimes even get a muscle injury. When you consider the weight exercises you are going to do, be realistic and do not overdo it.

During weight training, it can also be a good idea to increase the amount of weight. That being said, take into account the previous rule and do not try to increase the weight too dramatically, because injury will be the biggest hindrance of your training program. However, adding a small amount of weight for each training session can be useful.

Get More Familiar with Compound Exercises

Compound exercises can be great exercises to increase your muscle mass in several places. These exercises are useful for biceps, chest, shoulders, arms, legs and even your back! When you do these exercises, you will train more than one part of your body at the same time, which is why they are definitely recommended for anyone wanting to gain muscle mass.

During compound exercises, such as barbell rows, bench presses and overhead presses, you are not favouring a particular part of the body. Instead you are training several parts at the same time, enabling you to obtain a more balanced physique. Because of the fact you are training multiple parts at the same time, you will also burn more calories and fat, so compound exercises can be seen as a win-win situation!

Free Weights Are More Important Than You Think

Most men find the idea of training with free weight laughable, but they are actually incredibly useful when it comes to gaining muscle mass. Instead of doing your normal squats, try to add some free weights and see how many squats you can manage compared to your normal routine. You will be surprised just how much harder your training becomes by adding a simple tool such as free weights.

Use Barbells Instead of Dumbbells

A common mistake made by most men trying to build muscle is the use of the dumbbell as a main training tool. Even though dumbbells can make a great aid during your training, barbells are far more effective for gaining muscle mass.

Many people who are experienced in muscle building will be able to tell you than dumbbells simply are not effective for squats, simply because it takes more energy to lift the dumbbell to your shoulder than physically squatting the weight.

Increase Your Training Frequency

It is common logic that increasing your training frequency will affect your muscle mass. However, increasing your frequency does not mean you have to go overboard, because increasing your training too much can cause damage to your muscles instead. To increase your frequency, simply incorporate benching or squatting to times a week.

Take the Appropriate Amount of Rest Days

Some men are so obsessed with gaining muscle mass, they forget to take days off. They believe that by taking a day off, they will lose muscle and not contribute towards their muscle gain. Nothing is further from the truth however, because not taking rest days can have a more devastating effect on your muscle gains.

When you are working towards gaining muscle, it is very important not to fall into extremes and treat your body with respect. If you do not, your work in the gym will mean next to nothing.

Eat Accordingly

Nutrition is a vital part of gaining muscle, because without the proper nutrition, your muscles simply do not get the nutrients to grow. To gain muscle mass, you will have to eat more of the good stuff, which includes unprocessed foods and plenty of protein. It is also important to drink plenty of water, because your muscles need water in order to recover.

Conclusion

Building muscle is never easy, but with dedication, you can get the physique you always wanted. When adjusting your training and nutrition, never forget that muscle building is a process that takes time. Never try to force anything and do not fall for miracle workouts.

At Nutrients Direct, men can find an extensive range of muscle building supplements to aid in their journey towards more muscle mass. However, it is important not to rely on supplement alone and still put in the work, because otherwise supplements will not help you. Also try to combine supplements with the proper nutrition during your training program, even though our supplements will deliver many of the necessary nutrients for muscle growth.

Obtaining your muscle building supplements from Nutrients Direct comes with additional benefit, because each supplement at Nutrients Direct is accompanied by muscle points. Customers can accumulate these muscle points on their account by simply placing an order on our website.
