Build More Muscle Mass And Strength Without Supplements


Who should use this method to build muscle quickly?

If you're serious about your fitness or weight loss, you hate the idea that you're not making the most of every workout. For those of us with long work-days and kids, there's no time or physical energy to waste. We have to make every drop of sweat worth the work.

I'm going to show you how to build more muscle in less workout time. Keep in mind that this method is meant for people who want to build muscle mass and pure strength.

Now, what is your key to building muscle quickly? I mean, say I really want to bulk up in a week. How can I do this?

The key to more muscle mass out of every workout is to lift enough weight to cause muscle failure in only a 3-5 reps (repetitions of the movement). Rather than burning calories and creating lean muscle by doing many reps with lighter weights, you're taking just a bit of time to literally tear your muscle fibers apart, preparing them to build mass and strength when they receive protein from your next meal.

I've heard that it's good to eat directly after exercise. What do you do?

You must eat right after your workout. Not only will this quench your muscles' thirst for proteins, but it will help maximize your metabolism. An efficient metabolism comes in handy when you do cardio exercises, since your body is already working at high speed to burn the calories you have stored.

What Foods Should I Eat In My Post-Workout Meals?

Your meal after the workout should be high in protein from foods such as lean meats, protein shakes, liquid protein supplements, and others containing minimal fat content. Don't forget the carbs though. Make sure you include a normal, healthy source for carbohydrate such as fruit or vegetables, and even a whole-grain bread.
