How to Build Muscle

How to Build Muscle

@oi.strength

Training is easy, it's the amount of strenuous exercises you're going thru that hurts the most;
You have to undergo pain to grow.

To build muscle effectively, you must know the basics:
1: Exercise 
2: Diet/Nutrition
3: Recovery

Intense exercises to break the muscle fibers down is required to build muscle. Along with that you must have a good diet/nutrition plan - not enough of macro's (protein/fat/carbs) you won't grow. So make sure you get enough macros in. Protein is needed the most to help repair and build muscles and fats n carbs, they are there to help you grow too, but understand it wisely as you can manipulate your macro's to lose fat/gain fat/etc.

When training comes, people just do the basic workouts, simple and sometimes ineffective workouts. Workouts needs to be serious and focused on. If you're not focused or determined, you're wasting your time.
You have to train with different variation of exercises, and also add in some [intensity] techniques to help break down that muscle.

Training intensity techniques are:
tempo focus, lighter weight more reps, heavier weights, less reps, drop sets, super sets, pyramid. These will allow you to work more, allowing the muscle to be broken down more. The more it's being used (under tension), the more growth you'll see (if your diet/nutrition is good)

Diet/Nutrition Plan:
There's many many many ways to go about this - everyone's different, find what works for you and stick with it. Change it overtime to shock your body. Make sure you get enough protein intake in (for muscle-gainz and to prevent muscle-loss). Tracking your calories using Myfitnesspal App is beneficial to help focus on muscle-building (it'll help you to keep on track to reach your quota intake).

Conclusion:
That's basically it. There's not much to understand about bodybuilding or building muscle. What it comes down to is: How good is your workout sessions are (making sure you're putting in all of your effort and targeting the muscle properly), and if you're eating and recovering right. If you're not seeing good results, somewhere within your prep (workout routine or diet/nutrition plan) is not going right.

OMAD Conclusion (One Meal A Day)

My Conclusion on OMAD (One Meal A Day)@Delicatenutrition

Before I started OMAD, I had to think of why I was doing it. People saw benefits from eating once a day and I wanted to see results from it. OMAD is a 23:1 Ratio, meaning you only eat ONCE Per day. There's countless of benefits or reasons why people eat once a day. Some reasons are health benefits, eating restrictions, dieting, improving body fat burn (FAT LOSS) and much more. I wanted to perform OMAD to see if thus was true.

BEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND STAY LEAN WHILE BEING IN A WHEELCHAIR ♿

Wheelchair Weight Loss Tips   How to Lose Weight in a WheelchairFrom a Chubby Boy to Being a Shredded, 6 pack Abs, in A Wheelchair ♿I wasborn with a disease that put me in a wheelchair. Being a wheelchair user is hard to go about losing weight because we are limited, meaning, it is harder for us to get some type of physical exercise in depending on your condition. Physical exercise is one of the requirements in order to lose weight. Personally, depending on your situation, that should not be an excuse to be overweight or underweight; You must be disciplined and committed if you are serious about losing weight and staying lean!

Duringmy childhood, I was kinda fat, I'd say. Everyone was grabbing my cheeks, just like you see it everywhere with babies (and kids with chubby cheeks 😋), I wasn't annoyed by it at all until I realized I am [overweight]. I saw that I had a fat pack under my chin/my neck area, my stomach was bulged out, and I knew my body was not liking it. I did not ca…

Good Calories Vs Bad Calories

Good CaloriesVsBad Calories 💣
If you're trying to focus on weight management, understand nutrition and what food contains what.
In this day in age, a lot of people are going out to grab a quick meal, no biggie right? But those meals may contain a lot of unnecessary calories - packed with [excess] carbs, sugar, sodium, and more. With all these excessive additives, you're in the danger zone to gain weight. The reason why people gain weight so easily is because they don't manage there intake of macro's. Fats, carbs, and protein. To much of Carbs throughout the day along with sugar will definitely make you fat as well as too much of fats - anything of too much will make you fat. Food isn't always to blame when you're gaining fat, you may have to blame yourself for it. People who doesn't exercise on the daily basis will be unhealthier than most people and probably will have more fat than others (since they're not active), eating [healthy] might make you fat to…
