Discovering The Secrets To Better Body Building

Aug 21, 2008
What type of weight training will lead to the massive gains you desire? If you are like most men, becoming a lean, mean muscle machine is on your extended to-do list.

The problem is, if you have ever set foot in your average gym, not many of us have attained this goal.

With many of the people who have been relying on steroids or other performance enhancing drugs, it leaves the common man on the sideline wondering if there is a way for him to pack on serious muscle while burning fat.

Without further ado, there definitely is a scientific approach for you to attain the monster gains you desire so you can be proud of your body and brute strength development.

The first issue one must realize plays the greatest role in your gains of muscle and strength is diet. Diet is by far the most neglected piece of the muscle and strength gaining weight training puzzle.

Believe it or not, even if you follow the most effective training regime on the planet, you will not gain muscle unless you have the proper excess of calories, a significant percentage of them being from high quality protein in your diet.

So, are you wondering what this awesome muscle building diet consists of? Basically, your muscle building diet needs to be full of protein and plenty of good quality fats.

The amount of protein you need per day per pound of bodyweight to cause serious muscle growth is between 1.5 and 2. That means someone who weights 200 lbs should be eating between 300 and 400 grams of protein.

Also, you should make sure at least 50 of those grams are consumed within an hour of working out. Another issue to keep track of is your timing of meals.

By eating 6 times a day as opposed to 3, you can force your body into a state of constant anabolism, or growth. Now, you are probably wondering what type of training will turn you into a muscular monster in the least time?

If you are willing to follow the dietary guidelines, while also drinking plenty of water and at the same time following the protocol that is about to be laid out, even the scrawniest of the scrawny will have no choice but to attain explosive growth!

What is the secret to serious muscle development, awesome growth, and low fat levels? I will tell you in one or two words: squats and dead lifts.

If you do not know what these are, then there is no wonder you are reading this article, starving for the holy grail of becoming huge!

Squats and dead lifts, as well as the bench press and pull ups for the upper body, are the four lifts that will turn you into a ripped monster in the least time possible. Why? The science is behind the hormones.

When you force your body to use a huge percentage of its muscle mass in intense bouts of resistance training, your body releases much more growth hormone and other growth factors than will ever be possible by machine training alone.

Anyone who claims to have become huge using machines without doing the big lifts like squats and dead lifts for the lower body are either using performance enhancers or are just genetic freaks. More likely the former than the latter!
