Q&A: Keys to Building Muscle Mass

Question: “What are your best tips for building muscle mass?”

If you are looking to build muscle mass there are a few important keys. 

The first is nutrition. You have to take in the right amount of calories, protein, carbs, and fat in order to optimize your muscle building potential. You cannot skip meals, and eat 1,000 calories a day and expect to add mass on your frame. You need to be at a slight calorie surplus in order to build the muscle you want.

The second key is to keep changing your workouts and ensure they are challenging. You cannot do the same exercises week after week and expect new muscles to start popping out. Change your routine every few weeks to keep your body guessing and mind fresh. 

Additionally, while you tear your muscles down in the gym, feed them in the kitchen, do not under estimate the power of a rest day where your body builds and repairs its muscles stronger. But a rest day doesn’t mean taking time off your diet too. It’s a 24/7 lifestyle in which you fuel your body as you burn it off.

Lastly, learn which supplements you need. I recommend adding in Whey, Creatine, BCAAs and HMB.

If you just adhere to these key points you should see steady gains over the course of the following months!  I’m always interested in hearing your results! Keep us posted.
