10 Things Nobody Tells You When Trying To Gain Weight + Muscle When people want to gain weight AND muscles, the first philosophy that comes to their minds is that eating big equals getting big. But then again adding bulk is a must if you want to add muscle. The key here is to gain weight, or better yet, bulk up the right way. In this video, we will discuss the 10 things that for some reason nobody has told you yet when trying to put on weight and muscles.
Bulk up. To give you a small preview, one `insider secret` we have is that there are best meal times when gaining muscle.
So, must you really aim for 6,000 calories a day to build mass? First off, no, you don`t need 6,000 calories per day. For many bodybuilders, building mass requires consuming 17-20 calories per pound of bodyweight. For example, a 200-pounder usually needs 3,400 to 4,000 calories a day. If you`ve gained some in your midsection, your calorie intake may be too high.
When it comes to growing muscles while also ensuring you aren`t adding body fat, there are two most important meals. Eating a lot for breakfast boosts your anabolic, or muscle-building, hormones. Moreover, after training, your muscles suck up almost all incoming nutrients that support muscle growth, all the while hampering the process of storing body fat. It`s a universal truth that protein is the most important nutrient for gaining muscles.
However, it`s also true that carbs play a critical role in this process, especially after training. Putting a break into your carb intake means not getting enough calories. Therefore, since mass gain is your aim, you should include 2-3 grams of carbs per pound of body weight daily. For your post-workout meal, add 40 grams of fast-digesting protein like whey and 80-100g of fast-digesting carbs like baked potatoes, white bread, honey, and fruit.
Carbs spike the anabolic hormone insulin, driving glucose, amino acids, and supplements into your muscle cells. Next up is how aminos help with muscle gain. Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) aid in preventing the breakdown of muscles that are usually accompanied by hard training. For starters, it stimulates insulin, which then triggers muscle growth.
The key to mass building is to maintain an anabolic state, in which the body is constantly supplying amino acids to muscles to create growth. Once you`ve woken, drink a protein shake added with 3 grams of amino acid arginine. The amino acids will support the continuous delivery of protein and arginine will aid in the growth hormone production. 6.
It`s okay to eat a little dirty sometimes. Combine your healthy whole food diet with an occasional extra dose of simple carbs or fat. And speaking of fats, here`s why it`s important to add them to your diet: Fatty foods aren`t ideal if you want to gain weight and muscle at the same time.
