Fitness Workout Tips For Effective Growth Of Muscles

Jan 25, 2008
Just by lifting heavy weights and working for long hours in gym doesn't help to build your body. Have you ever thought why your muscles' growth gets stranded after a few weeks of training although you are training very hard? There are shocking reasons why muscles growth is slowing down day by day.

Do not train too hard - whenever you train your muscles extremely, in fact you are breaking down your muscles. So your muscles need to get better from the damages you inflicted on them. Therefore it is better to train each muscle group only once or twice a week.

Do not train for long hours - Keep your workout intense but do not workout more than sixty minutes each time. After 45 minutes of intensive training, your cortisol level will increase. Cortisol is a hormone; surprisingly this hormone is known to Destroy Muscle Cells.

Keep ample of time for sleeping. Sleep is very much essential for good muscle growth. Your muscles grow when you sleep so it is suggested to sleep for 8 hours a day and watch those muscles grow fast.The most important thing that has to be taken care to build up your muscles is to give up alcohol as it is a toxin.

Do you know how these toxins affect your muscle? Simple, it travels through your bloodstream to every organ and tissue in your body, thus slowing your body's ability to train your muscles up to the mark. The effect of alcohol doesn't end here, in fact provides 7 calories per gram. So if you're getting a lot of empty calories that are not used just for building muscle mass then these calories can promote fat storage as well as reduce your consumption of high-quality, high- protein nutrients essential for building muscle mass.

Be careful in your workout routine -You must change your workout routine every 6-8 weeks. Your muscles adapt to your routine and stops growing. Have rest days in between your workout days and do not work the same muscle group more than twice a week. Your muscles need to recover from your workouts in order to grow big.

Follow proper diet -If you want to build bigger muscles, you must eat more protein. Make sure that you eat enough protein. You should eat at least one gram of protein per pound of your body weight everyday if you want to gain muscle mass fast. If you don't get enough protein, your muscles won't grow big.

Do not concentrate on one workout - Work with compound exercises like bench presses, squats, barbell rows, chin ups and dead lifts to build big muscle mass. If you concentrate on working your puny muscles like your biceps, then you will only have puny muscle growth.

Yes to increase your muscle, you had to consider these aspects than just hitting the gym regularly.
