3 Bodybuilding Muscle Tips

3 Bodybuilding Muscle Tips

3 top building muscle tips

Looking to Grow? Here are the top 3 tips for building muscles

1) Stimulating Muscles:

 There are 3 ways to stimulate the muscle. Mechanical Tension, Muscle Damage, Cellular Fatigue.
Mechanical tension refers to the amount of force produced in muscle fibers.

When you lift weights, you produce two types of mechanical tension in your muscles: “passive” and “active” tension. Passive tension occurs when your muscles are stretching, and active tension occurs when they’re contracting.

Muscle damage refers to microscopic damage caused to the muscle fibers by high levels of tension. 

This damage requires repair, and if the body is provided with proper nutrition and rest, it’ll make the muscle fibers larger and stronger to better deal with future bouts of tension.

(It’s still not entirely clear whether muscle damage directly stimulates muscle growth or whether it’s just a side effect of mechanical tension, but as of now, it deserves a place on the list.)

Cellular fatigue refers to a host of chemical changes that occur inside and outside muscle fibers when they contract repeatedly.

When you repeat the same movement over and over again to the point of near failure, this causes high amounts of cellular fatigue.

Research conducted by scientists at Harvard Medical School shows that mechanical tension is the most important of these three pathways for muscle growth. This has been confirmed in a number of other studies as well.

In other words, mechanical tension produces a stronger muscle-building stimulus than muscle damage and cellular fatigue.

2) Muscles Grow During Recovery, not in the Gym.

Many people think that by working really hard in the gym, they'll make those gains easily, but it's a bit more complicated than that. When you work out, you're damaging your muscle fibers When you're finished with your workout, you need to nourish the body with nutrients so it can begin to rebuild itself; When you sleep, that's when your body is recovering, building new tissues, cells, muscles, etc. It's vital that you pay attention to your sleep, diet, and health to get the best result.

3) Eat To Grow / Eat Small to Lean Out

If you're trying to grow, grow muscle size, you have to eat. Calories matter when trying to build mass. When or if you're in a calorie deficit, it'll be harder to recover due to lack of nutrients and your strength will be decreased, so with that being said, if you want to lean out, a calorie deficit is the answer. Eating in a calorie surplus will make you gain weight and mass. Carbs and Fats are important when trying to grow - don't eliminate carbs nor fats within your diet. Make sure you get enough protein as well.
