If you’re anything like I was short, “skinny guy trying to build muscle mass,” I have some important tips that may help you start seeing results immediately.
There are three main ingredients that you need to build muscle mass and quickly at that. And here they are:
Muscle Mass Ingredient # 1 – More Protein
If you want to build muscle mass quickly then this is a “must”. Just remember, the only thing that can build muscle in your body is Protein. So if you are consuming enough protein it is impossible to build muscle mass and stack on the pounds.
To maintain your weight, you should consume 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight. So if you have a £ 150 guy then in order to maintain the muscle mass of the weight you need to consume 150 grams of protein each day. And if you want to build muscle mass, you’re going to need to consume “more” protein, to not only keep the muscles you have now but to build more.
So if you want to build muscle mass quickly and safely general rule of thumb is to consume 1-2 grams of protein per pound of body weight. So if you’re 150lb. The guy you’d want to eat at least 150 grams of protein in 300 grams of protein a day
Muscle Mass Ingredient # 2 -. More Carbs
Despite Dr. Atkins said that all us skinny guys “Carbs are GOOD.” We need carbohydrates for energy. But you do not want to consume just any ‘OL carbohydrates. You want to consume large amounts of complex carbohydrates rather than simple carbohydrates.
In other words, you still want to stay away from sweets and simple sugars that are found in a lot of junk food in, and you want to eat more complex carbohydrates such as those found in whole wheat bread, brown rice, sweet potatoes, whole grains, yams, spinach, etc.
Why complex carbs? Because unlike simple carbohydrates (sugar) it is almost impossible to turn complex carbs into fat -. Which means more energy to burn (work out with) and less fat to deal with at the end of
If you want to build muscle mass fast, ideally you’d want to consume 2 -. 3 grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight per day
muscle Ingredient # 3 – Heavy Weight Training
You can not build muscle mass without the “heavy weight training.” Let’s just put it this way “to more stress (heavy weight) you put on your muscles, the more it will grow.” And it is simply because when you put stress on muscles by lifting heavy weights, your body responds (builds more muscle) so that next time it will not be as difficult or challenging your body to lift the same weight.
Ideally, if you want to build muscle mass – muscle mass to be more precise, you’d want to lift weights that allow you to do 6-8 reps and no more
course. a whole lot more to build muscle mass, but if you follow these 3 main topics you’ll be on your way to build muscle mass fast and a whole lot easier than you ever thought possible. Good luck and grow “Much.”
