You see, you have to feed your body MORE FOOD, more often, if you want to gain muscle mass. So the honest reality is… gaining muscle mass has more to do with your eating habits than it does with ANY kind of exercise! Now, another thing about eating: Spreading out your meals is CRUCIAL for building new muscle mass. You see, unlike fat, your body can’t store protein very well. If it doesn’t get a steady stream of protein every 3 to 4 hours… it will actually take it from your MUSCLE!
I see way too many guys spending 2 to 3 hours a day working out in the gym. Not only does that NOT help…but it’s actually doing more harm than good. Studies show that your body starts to break down muscle after about 30 minutes of weight lifting. In other words, you’re actually tearing down muscle by working out for too long. And don’t copy pro bodybuilder workouts, those guys use large amounts of performance enhancing drugs that allow them to keep training those marathon sessions… So it’s important to keep your workouts to 45 minutes or less by cutting down on sets and reps and ONLY do what matters.
One of the most common mistakes people make when trying to build muscle is they eat as many grams of protein as humanly possible. Protein isn’t the holy grail of muscle-building that those popular bodybuilding magazines would lead you to believe! I’m NOT saying that protein isn’t important for building muscle, because it is. What I’m saying is that NOT all protein is created equal… some proteins can actually pack on a ton more muscle mass than others. You can actually increase the amount of natural muscle-building hormones in your body by including anabolic protein…
