The Fastest Way To Build Muscle

Aug 18, 2007
There are millions of people within the body building industry today and each of them seems to know the fastest way to build muscle, naturally of course, no steroids involved. So, how do you build muscle fast the natural way? After reading this article you should have the answer to your question.

So you want to know the best way to build muscle fast? Before you learn that it is important that you know how muscle is built so here is the basics:

The process of how muscle is built may sound complicated but it is surprisingly quite simple. Your muscles grow when they are put under extreme stress, such as lifting heavy weights. Once you pick up these heavy weights and apply that extreme stress to your muscles the muscles will begin to have small tears in the muscle fibers. The body will then begin to repair these small tears and they will also build stronger muscle fibers to prevent future tears.

So, when you lift heavy weights your muscles tear and the body repairs them stronger than they were before to prevent further tears from that same level of stress, its that simple.

That is the basics that you should understand before you even begin lifting weights to build muscle fast. Now, here are some guidelines on the fastest way to build muscle.

The best way to build muscle fast is to apply the greatest amount of stress possible to the muscles and you want to do this in the shortest possible time. The best way to achieve this is to do the heaviest weight you can do over the fewest repetitions. I would recommend that you do the heaviest weight you can do no more than 5 to 7 repetitions each set. I would also recommend you do 3 sets, you can do 4 but 3 is better with heavy weight.

The reason you want to do few reps and few sets rather than a lot of reps over a lot of sets is because your body will begin to break down your muscles for energy to support your efforts. So you will be doing the opposite of what you want which is to build muscle fast.

The next thing you must do is to workout about one hour. If you work out anymore than one hour your body will begin to destroy the muscles as explained above. You also need to eat a good healthy diet with about 40% carbs, 40% protein, and 20% fats such as olive oil. The diet will help you to get the energy you will need when working out.

When looking for the fastest way to build muscle all you need to do is lift heavy weights for few reps and few sets, eat a good balanced diet, and watch the amount of time you lift.
