How To Put On Muscle

I get asked this question all the time. "How do I put on muscle?" I get it. When I was younger, I was an average dude that wanted to get stronger and bigger. I was playing American Football and the bigger and stronger I could get the better. Here's some times for how to put on that muscle.

1) Train for hypertrophy. What is that? It's a scientific term for making your muscles bigger. How do you do that? The fastest way is to do sets of 8-15 repetitions on your exercises with as much weight as you can accomplish with those repetitions. This is a case where a body building style of gym would be beneficial for you because you get to isolate specific muscle groups and smash. The idea with this type of training is getting a somewhat high volume at a sub maximal weight.

2) You have to eat enough. Some like to go on the see-food diet, which means if you see food then you eat it. That isn't necessarily good for health in the long run and you probably won't put on just muscle. You need to eat more of good food. Eat lean proteins such as chicken, eggs, fish, or lentils. Eat 3-5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Eat minimally process carbs such as whole grains and sweet potatoes. And eat less processed fats such as extra virgin olive oil, cold pressed coconut oil, and cold pressed flax seed oil. I you are not gaining any weight or any muscle, then you need to eat more.

3) Cut down the empty carbs. Empty carbs are the tasty carb-heavy foods that might fill you up but don't help you build any muscle. These can be foods like white rice, chips, pastas, and sweets.
