The secret to building muscle fast

May 20, 2008
There is a "secret" to building muscle fast. And I'm going to share it with you here in this article today.

What I'm going to share is not really a secret, per se. It is almost common knowledge. But because so many people know this information and yet don't apply it -- I've decided to call it a secret.

Are you ready to know what this secret is?

The "secret ingredient" to building muscle (fast) is rest. Most people over emphasize the "working out" part of building muscle and they completely forget that you don't build muscle in the gym -- you build it out of the gym!

In fact, a majority of weight lifters and bodybuilders are actually overtraining because they don't put as much emphasis on recovery as they do on "working out".

So what are some ways you can make sure you're applying this secret?

1. Get a good nights sleep every night. Try to sleep at least 5 hours a night... and 8 hours is best if your'e training really hard (like you should be!)

2. Eat A LOT -- most people can't gain lean muscle because they don't eat enough. Especially if your'e a hard gainer you have to eat, eat, and eat some more. Definitely increase your intake of proteins (an easy way to do this is to drink at least one protein shake a day).

3. Stretch the muscles you last worked out. This will increase blood flow to the area ( which brings nutrients to the muscles -- feeding them for growth) and will also help with any post- workout soreness and general recovery.

You may be asking yourself... "Can it really be that simple to build muscle?" Yes, it could be that simple for you.

So how do you know?

If you feel like you've hit a plateau... like you're banging you head against a wall just trying to get a little more gains... if you're bored with your workout... or you're not growing as fast as you used to, then there's a strong chance you might not be getting enough of this "Secret". If this is true for you, then just increasing the quality of your rest could be just the ticket to start seeing more muscle mass.
