Gaining Muscle Mass
Many people start out on a bodybuilding program without ever asking a few vital questions ! Here are one or two of them !
What Is Muscle Made Of ?
Muscle is the tissue of the body which primarily functions as a source of power. Muscles grow when muscle fibres are damaged and repair themselves following a workout. Muscles will only grow in size when they have fully recovered from the gym workout, then, and only then will muscle growth happen. Muscles need time to heal, once a week for directly hitting a muscle is fine. Muscular development can only happen in the presence of ample amino acids and the only source for amino acids is dietary protein. Protein is not just meat and there are many sources of protein but carbohydrates give the body energy to deal with the rigors of training and recovery.
What Does Bodybuilding Involve ?
Bodybuilding is not only a sport but it is also a great learning experience. The thing I find interesting about bodybuilding is the combination of components and discipline. Bodybuilding is the act of putting on muscle by working out and shaping one's diet to put on more muscle mass. As you gain in confidence and experience you will achieve greater muscle mass and have no trouble in burning off body fat. Bodybuilding is not a project that you work hard on for a set amount of time, finish, and then sit back and admire. It is an ongoing, lifelong process filled with ups and downs, triumphs and setbacks, peaks and recessions. There are many programs available to help you build muscle mass quickly but first let us look at what bodybuilding involves and what you need to know before you get ripped fast.
