So, You Want to BUILD MUSCLE...?

1. Increase Caloric Intake

You want to grow? You want to add more muscle mass? Then you need to increase your caloric intake pure and simple. To add quality muscle mass, you need to be in a state of caloric excess.  

2. Increase Protein Consumption

The benefits of protein are numerous for the bodybuilder: increased protein synthesis, positive nitrogen balance, muscle recovery and anti-catabolism. Remember, protein provides the building block of muscle.  

3. Take In Healthy Fats 

We do not mean from burgers and fries. There are plenty of good fat sources including olive oil, flaxseed oil and borage oil. These contain “essential” fats, those that the body can’t manufacture on its own.

4. Ease Up On The Cardio

Cardio may let you consume more and stay hard, but it can also get in the way of growth. If you are trying to gain ease up or stop altogether.  

5. Get Plenty Of Rest 

Probably one of the most underutilized of all the bodybuilding tools. Rest is when the muscles you’ve torn down from training are allowed to build up. Too much training and not enough rest, and you’ll enter the dreaded “over training” zone. 

6. Pack On The Plates! 

Obviously one of the best ways to get massive is to progressively lift heavier. This isn’t an invitation to put on as many plates as you can only to perform the exercise with improperly. Use as much as you can while allowing you to still do the exercise strict. With respect to reps, when it comes to building power and strength, you can aim low 6-8 per set should do it.  

7. Stick To Basic Movements

Basic movements train your body’s largest muscles such as your back, quads, and pecs. The more mass these get the better you will look. Plus basic movements not only train the target body part they train the supporting muscles also.  

8. Take Good Supplements 

If you are doing all of the above then it will bring you to your full potential to add good supplements like Nitrobol to your mass building diet.
