There are many who believe that Loosing Fat is difficult than Gaining Muscles. This is not true. Both equally take efforts to gain the desired result. It is not like that one goes to gym and starts lifting weight and instantly gains mass. Rather, lifting weight is just a part to gain muscles, the rest being maintaining proper diet schedule and taking adequate amount of rest.
GYM WORKOUT APP tends to shed light on certain untold tips about gaining muscle mass, that can help one gain more mass quickly. Read on to know more about it.
1. Count Calories
Developing muscle mass needs a lot of calories which can aid to growing. Therefore, having a caloric surplus is the utmost important phase to successful gaining of muscle mass.
2. Suffice Your Protein Requirements
We all know that amino acids found in proteins are the building blocks of muscles which help in muscle growth. One should strive to consume around 4 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight, while also including different types of protein sources such as fish, dairy products, eggs, chicken and other green vegetables.
3. Meet Your Carbohydrates Requirements
Carb rich diets are very important for athletes, especially bodybuilders. Since, carbs are our body’s primary source of energy, so if one doesn’t have enough glycogen in our tank then we won’t be able to train as hard as one should and hence our gains will suffer. One should consume 6 grams of carbs per kilogram of bodyweight every day. Have Oats, Sweet Potatoes, Brown Rice, Dry Fruits and other sources of carbs to meet the requirement.
4. Serve Your Dietary Fat Requirements
Dietary fats or Good Fats plays vital role in the human body such as hormone production. A low-fat diet will damage a bodybuilder’s ability to produce enough testosterone which in turn makes it practically impossible to build muscle. Aim for 1.5 grams of fat per kilogram of bodyweight every day. Have dairy products, avocadoes, nuts, peanut butter, walnuts, fishes and other good fats to suffice your fat requirement.
5. Increase Meal Frequency
One is supposed to consume a caloric surplus, if one wants to gain muscle mass and this can be done by increasing the meal frequency to 6-8 times in a day. Eating 7-8 small meals ensures our body receives a constant flow of nutrients to support optimal protein synthesis.
6. Never Skip Post-Workout Meal
The post workout meal has the determination of refilling your depleted glycogen reserves and accelerating muscle recovery.
7. Drink Plenty of Water
Water is one of the main elements for mass-gaining diet as it helps sustain muscle pump and aids digestion and nutrient absorption. The carbs and proteins that we ingest in our body are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream. Also, water is crucial for proper blood circulation in the body, which leads to greater levels of oxygen in the bloodstream which ultimately burns more fat for energy. Thus, try to have 3-4 litres of water everyday.
