Friday Fit Tips – Building Muscle

Yahoo, another Friday! 🙂

Today’s fit tips are more simple ones, but there are some people who don’t understand these concepts, so I thought a refresher was a good idea.

friday fit tip - building muscles

You have to eat to accommodate the muscles you are trying to make. This means upping your caloric and complete protein intake. You cannot build muscles without the proper fuel!

And also, FORM is extremely, extremely important! It is better to only be able to do 1 or 2 reps with proper form, than countless reps with poor form. Poor form will lead to injuries, and a host of other troubles. Focus on your form first, once you get that proper, you can work on building up your reps. A good tip is to video your workouts so you can see your form and adjust accordingly.

And finally…. you gotta REST. I know, believe me, I know how addicting it is, and you wanna keep chasing that feeling… but you have to rest too. Resting is when all your hard work pays off and those muscles grow. They can’t grow without rest!

Pretty basic, but all of these will help you achieve your mass building goals!
