WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BULKING UP
A GUIDE TO QUICKLY GETTING STRONGER AND BIGGER
Getting stronger and bigger is something a lot of guys try to achieve at the gym these days. It might seem easy enough when you see them work out, but lifting, sweating and exercising will, after all, only get you to a certain point before you start to lose weight. So you will need to eat and you will need to eat a lot. Bodybuilders who take it up a notch and try to gain somewhat extreme muscle mass will even have to eat more than what’s considered to be good for them - but you won’t have to take it this far.
Just head off to the grocery shop and try to stock up on the kind of food that is good for your muscles. After some time, you might notice that you’re using up so much energy at the gym, that you’re naturally able to eat more. Here's a handful of tips to get you started so that you can see some incredible progress by the time summer hits us.
You need to eat more often
Sure, you know very well that getting bigger is all about protein and carbs, but the frequency of your meals will also have a big impact. If you used to stick to about three meals per day such as eating breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll definitely need to add a couple of meals in between in order to reach your weight goals. Keep in mind that it’s possible to help your body out a bit by giving it a healthy supplement or two. Visit sarmsstore.co.uk for example, for some great options that will give your body what it’s craving both before and after a good workout. Make sure that you include a meal about two hours after waking up and about two hours before your lunch. Do the same after dinner; about two hours after, you should have a snack to keep you full until you go to bed.
Spice your routine up a bit
Another point to rapidly gaining muscles and strength is that you should mix your routine up a bit. This isn’t just important in terms of gaining muscle mass, though, as continuing to exercise the same body parts and doing the same movements over and over again will cause some serious wear and tear on your joints. A well-planned routine that focuses on different exercises and varies the muscles you’re exercises will be much better for your bones. Needless to say, it’s going to feel much better to be you when you’re a bit older and won’t have to support yourself whenever you need to get up from the couch.
Focus on getting enough sleep
Finally, you should invest some time in the bedroom if you’d like to treat your body right. Most of your recovery will happen when you’re sleeping and you simply won’t gain as many benefits from those hours you put into the gym unless you invest a lot of hours under the duvet as well. Have a look at goalcast.com for some more great snooze tips. While this is quite individual, most adults will need about eight hours of sleep every night. You’re going to notice a difference on both your mood and your muscles and an excuse to call it a day a bit earlier is always welcome.
