Firstly though, if you are only after training advice then I recommend you click here for tips on how to build muscle mass. Building muscle however is not only about what training program you are on. To a large extent, hang on let me rephrase… to a MASSIVE extent, your ability to put on lean muscle (muscle, without gaining fat), depends largely on how you fuel your body.
You see, to consistently go to the gym and progressively increase your strength over time is the easy part. To eat the right amount of calories day in, day out to adequately fuel your body to allow it to grow (without gaining excessive fat) is twenty four seven. Yes, you can adopt the theory to just eat as much as you can and it will work to some extent. But eating too many calories, too much of the wrong foods or eating foods in the wrong ratio of protein carbohydrates and fats can cause you to put on excess weight… FAT! On the other hand, not having enough will mean you wont put on any muscle, making all your training useless in terms of gaining muscle. Even artificial help (yep, I am referring to steroids) won’t be much good without adequate fueling from food.
A word on supplements…
Certain supplements can help. If I have not done so already, I will be putting up more information on various supplements to help keep you up to speed. But in the meantime you are much better off learning all you can about proper eating from natures own natural food sources. Supplements are the icing on the cake that will help you go that extra mile. Proper eating will account for the majority of you successes, so don’t fall for all the crazy advertising claims that certain supplements are like the magic pill. In many, and I almost say ‘most’, circumstances supplements will do no more than lighten up your hip pocket! On the flip side I give credence to some supplements as they can be of benefit to compliment your training regime.
