Five Strategies to Build Muscle Fast

If you want to build muscle fast, it’s important to follow strategies that support your muscle growth. Exercise is important, but it’s not the only important factor. It’s important to make sure your lifestyle supports muscle building.

Strategy 1 – Add calories to your diet.

Many people begin adding protein to their diets when they’re ready to bulk up. But they don’t add enough calories overall, so their bodies can’t actually grow properly.

Log how many calories you’re eating each day to find out if you’re consuming enough. To figure out how many calories you need to eat, take your body weigh tin pounds and multiply that number by 10. Then add another thousand calories. That’s how many you need each day to build muscle.

If you’re not eating enough, make sure to add calories from healthy sources such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and oils. Avoid refined sugars and processed foods that promote the development of fat rather than muscle.

Strategy 2 – Increase your water intake.

The average person needs to drink 8-10 glasses of water each day. When you’re working out intensively, you need to drink even more. Muscle cells are about 70 percent water. If you’re dehydrated, you can’t build muscle fast.

Strategy 3 – Add a supplement.

If you want to build muscle fast, you need the raw materials to do so. Make sure you have adequate protein by adding a protein supplement to your routine. The highest quality protein source is whey protein.

Having a post workout shake can help you to build muscle at a faster pace. If you’re lactose intolerant, try a protein supplement made from egg protein instead of whey.

Strategy 4 – Give your body more rest.

Many people think that muscle is built during exercise. But in actuality, muscle is built when you’re resting. If you don’t give yourself enough rest you won’t be able to build muscle.

If you have a really intense workout, you may need two to five days of rest between exercise routines. You need at least one day between workouts to allow your body time to recover and build muscle tissue.

Strategy 5 – Add carbohydrates.

When you think of building muscle protein comes to mind. And while many people add protein, they neglect to provide the body with enough carbohydrates.

Make sure you’re eating whole grains and fruits and veggies so that you have the energy you need to build muscle fast.
