I get lot of questions from my readers as to how to put muscle if you are a beginner. Especially from people with the body type that of the one which has hard time putting on weight and when I say weight I mean muscle not fat! In this article, I am going to discuss a simple strategy to put on muscle whether you are a beginner or a beginner with an ectomorph body.
The biggest problem with beginners is that they believe if they follow a training routine of pro bodybuilder like Jay cutler or Ronnie Coleman they can become one or look like them. Well sorry to wake you up guys; it isn’t going to happen, because they have great genetics which only few people on earth possess. Other important thing is that you are natural so putting on so much of muscle isn’t possible.
Now let’s look at what you can do to put on muscle naturally and irrespective of your genetics. You can start putting on by following certain outlined tips.
First and foremost, you must start training with weights and get your body adjusted to the training demand. Weight training is one of the best ways to stimulate muscle growth and spike testosterone. Make sure your training routine has lot of compound moments and less of machines. Here is a video where I outline one of the basic and best training routine that you guys can follow.
Have a good nutritional plan to build muscle and maintain it. Always remember muscles are built by what you eat and how you time your meals. Quality of food and right kind of macros at the right time is very important. Eat at least 1700 calories of right kind of food.
Train on HIT principal that's what I train on and train my clients. Here is a video where I discuses about the HIT training compared to that of High volume training.
Rest and Recuperation:
Properly schedule rest and recuperate well to gain muscle. Rest is the most over looked aspect in weight training and I can tell you more are not good, so cut down on your days of training and focus more on training intensity. Train 4 days a week initially. Then change the workout.
One of the best whey protein is muscle Blaze Whey protein, I prefer to take 2 whey protein shakes a day and my training has improved since I have added Muscle Blaze to my nutritional arsenal gains have drastically improved.
