Most of the people who don’t get immediate workout gains either get disheartened, and stop working out, or spend their hard earned money on expensive but useless products that give them little or no benefit in the end. No individual who goes to the gym wants himself to be in the category of the lank and skinny hard workers. However, there are many people who hardly get any benefit out of the gym. So, if you fall in such category or don’t want yourself to fall in such category.
Here are 10 Killer Ways to Build Muscles Naturally for You:
1. Workout within 1 Hour:
The reason why many people spend a long time in the gym is that their workout isn’t challenging enough. Spending excess time in the gym might point towards the fact that you are shedding weight and not building muscles. The only way out of this is intense workouts. Do workouts that tire you within 45 minutes or half an hour. Don’t spend your time uselessly in the gym.
2. Workout in the Right Form
Doing exercises in the right form is indispensable if you want your body to build muscles in specific regions. Doing your reps slowly and in the right form is not only challenging, but it also leads to better results and saves you from injuries.
3. Increase Weight Decrease Reps
You can be assured that you’re doing the right workout if you can do 5 to 12 reps of it in good form, and you’re tired after that. However, in case you can carry it out to 15 or more, then that means your body has become accustomed to the workout and you need to change either the workout or increase the weight that you are lifting.
4. Rest Each Muscle for at Least 72 hours
If you are doing biceps and chest every day then you definitely won’t get good biceps and chest. Muscles do not develop while working out but they develop while you rest them after the workout. After working out on one muscle region in the gym, you must not work on it for at least three days if you want to get optimum results.
5. Focus on Strength not on Looks
Gaining successively in strength is what working out is all about. If you are lifting higher weights now and doing intense workouts that you couldn’t do before, then you are definitely improving. Looking at yourself every day in the mirror and judging yourself can be deceptive sometimes. Don’t worry, if you are becoming stronger muscles will also follow.
6. Know Your Food
Don’t eat mindlessly, and don’t thoughtlessly swallow whatever your favorite bodybuilder endorses, or your gym instructor suggests. Do your research and don’t let anyone dupe you. Going for meat, eggs, and milk is a better option if you don’t know much about supplements. Make sure you have a healthy and heavy diet.
7. Get A Good Sleep
It isn’t possible to get a good 8 to 9 hours sleep nowadays. But still, if your favorite TV sitcom and not office work is keeping you up till late at night, then you are needlessly harming your body. Keep your cell phone addiction and TV addiction in check and get a good night sleep, at least for the sake of your body.
8. Do Compound Lifts
Compound exercises focus on more than one joint. Popular exercises in this category include squats, chin-ups, deadlifts, and bench press. Doing such exercises give testosterone boost to your body while ensuring a balanced muscle growth. However, you are not supposed to do only compound exercises, just keeping one or two in your daily workout plan would be more than enough.
9. Don’t Ignore Your Legs
No muscular chest and biceps look good when paired with thin duck-like legs. If you’re only paying attention to your upper body this is what you’re aiming to get. Leg-exercises like dead-lift have a very positive impact on muscle development. They help in building strong shoulders and back, and also release more growth hormones into the body.
10. Stay Calm
Work as hard as you can inside the gym. But take it easy when you’re outside it. Don’t run around and waste your energy needlessly while doing your day to day activities. Reserve all your energy and channelize it towards building better muscle mass. Stay focused.
Follow these 10 killer ways to build muscle mass naturally to the word, and you won’t have to worry about looking skinny anymore. Stay strong. Stay ripped.
