The Prepared Pantry - The Key To Building Muscle

Apr 9, 2008
So you want to build muscle, right? Not only do you want to build muscle but you want to build it fast. Let's step inside your home for a minute. Pretend I'm the pantry police and I'm here to do a raid. What would I find? Would I find all the key muscle building ingredients you need to pack on solid lean weight or would I find a bunch of empty calorie foods that do nothing but prevent you from reaching your goal?

If you're trying to gain weight, the good kind of weight - solid lean mass- having a prepared pantry can mean the difference between victory and failure. Let's step back inside your home again. If you open your refrigerator, will you find flat soda and a jar of mayo or will you find live organic produce exploding with enzymes, vitamins and minerals? What if you open your cupboard? Will you find unprocessed, whole grains rich in nutrients or will you find highly processed, diluted, refined products with a bunch of sugar and high fructose corn syrup?

So do you believe every rep and every set is important to gaining muscle? You're right, they are important, but what about, every bite and every meal? Do you believe they are equally important? Yes, they are! If your body is so busy digesting and processing all the garbage you're putting into it, it can't possibly have enough enzymes left to digest all the proper food components you're consuming to build muscle.

So what do you do with all this STUFF that your body doesn't need? Throw it out! Do you think a runner will win a marathon if they did not eat adequate nutrition prior the run? Absolutely not, so why do you think that a body builder doesn't need adequate nutrition to perform like an athlete?

Half the battle to growing muscle and growing it fast is to be well prepared with the proper nutrition immediately ready and available for consumption. A bunch of frozen chicken breasts and raw potatoes aren't going to help you out either when you're hungry. An easy source of live and immediately available protein is hemp protein. All you have to do is add water or juice and BAM! you've got a power packed punch of nutrition.

Keep raw almond butter, fruits and veggies on hand read for immediate consumption. Having all the wrong foods immediately available are only going to result in poor food choices slowing your muscle gains down. Think about that one for a minute. Do you think you would be reading this article if the title was "Sure Fire Ways to Slow Your Muscles Gains Down"?

Nothing is more frustrating to me than to see someone call themselves a hard gainer. You know what? They're right, it's awfully "hard to gain" when you're on a diet of burger and fries! It's those last minute decisions that cost you. Your valuable hard training becomes meaningless if you can't provide your body what it needs when it needs it.

So how can you start building muscle and building it fast? The bottom line is that preparation is EVERYTHING. If you leave the house unprepared (since your pantry and refrigerator were unprepared) then you ultimately have to make unprepared decisions about what you consume. Building muscle isn't just about pushing around weights in the gym.

You can work out all year long and if you're not prepared to eat right when and where your body needs it, you can kiss your gains goodbye. I have never heard of anything being built fast without the right product or tool. So get the right products (proper foods) and get the right tools (being prepared) and start building muscle today!
