How To Get Massive With Food

By Bodybuilding Store

EVERY GUY, no matter who or where he is, at some point in their lives wanted more muscle. The aspiration to grow bigger started the fitness boom in the 80's on the tail of the aerobic sensation that took over the world. There are now millions of guys asking how to get big by eating right.

Without going into any specific detail we have listed the top 10 ways to add more muscle food to your daily diet. If you have never tried one of these methods, then some research and implementation would be a good idea. The following 10 ways will increase your results in training for size.

1. Eat more:

If you eat extra calories and combine it with some sensible training, you will grow bigger muscles, there's no-doubt about it. Says Sean Hyson, C.S.C.S., the group director of Men's Fitness.

2. Power up with protein:

Your proteins you ingest will be important building blocks for your muscle. Proteins assist with any rebuilding and all recovery processes. You should aim for 1-1.5 grams of good protein for each pound of your body weight.

3. Don't cut carbs:

As we mentioned above carbs are an important muscle growth substance, not only because of the benefit the body gets from the hormone balancing effect that carbs do, but it also maximizers your recovery after a brutal workout.

.4. Use dumbbells:

There are more than one strength and/or bodybuilding coach out there who agrees that working with dumbbells will target more muscle fibers that using a regular barbell. Andrew Sakhrani, C.S.C.S., a Montreal-based strength coach, encourages occasionally swapping out barbell work with dumbbells.

5. Work your back:

Focusing on chest and arms is easy, if left unattended it will only lead to an imbalance, which leads to long-term injury.

6. Sleep:

A senior researcher on sleep tells us that he can now prove that all the important growth hormones are released during REM sleep (deep sleep).

7. Pump up the volume:

Volume training certainly has stood the test of time. Bodybuilders have been building muscle doing 4 to 5 sets of 8-12 reps each for decades. This means about 200 reps for each body-part.

8. Go heavy:

Any heavy lifting you do will skyrocket your testosterone levels. Any decent strength coach will know the enormous value of training 5 X 5 reps. It has proven itself to work for building muscle for over 50 years.

9. Move with multi-joint movements:

Building a strong foundation to grow a serious amount of muscle starts and ends with compound multi-joint lifts. For example, the chin-up movement is the "original" biceps curling movement. This principal will apply to the training of all your muscle groups.

10. Cut back on your workload time:

Often the most effective way to increase your strength is by training less for fewer days so that your body gets a chance to get fully recuperated and increase your strength max. By just decreasing the weight and increasing your reps, you'll be encouraging full recovery.
