To some people, gaining muscle can be very difficult, and others have an extremely easy time putting on the extra size. No matter which category your fall into, I can help you reach your goals to build the body that you’ve always wanted.

In order to get you started on the right path towards building muscle I will give you a few of the main points that you need to know when trying to pack on the pounds. Below are some pointers.

First – Be sure to train each muscle group every 2-3 days. This allows the muscles the proper time to recover without allowing any atrophy to take place in the recently built muscle. Most people have a hard time building muscle because they either over train a given muscle or they wait too long between training the muscle. To ensure proper rest follow this rule and you’ll be started off on the right path.

Second – Eat something healthy every 3-4 hours. This allows your metabolism to work to the best of it’s ability which will ensure proper muscle growth.

Third – Be sure to eat roughly 500 calories above your BMR in order to provide your muscles with the nutrients that they need in order to grow. 500 extra calories per day will help you put on muscle without gaining too much extra body fat. These extra calories should come from foods rich in protein as well as complex carbs and healthy fats.

Whether you’re looking to tone up and put on a little muscle or bulk up and be a body builder, I can help you reach those goals in a safe and effective way through diet, exercise, and healthy supplementation.

Recommended Supplements

When you’re looking to build muscle there are a few supplements on the market that can safely and effectively give you the jump start you need to succeed.

L-Gluatmine – This is a Branch Chain Amino Acid that our body makes naturally, but in smaller doses. It’s main use is to aid in muscle recovery and immune system strength. You want to take this product in powder form and at 15-20 grams per day spread out. I recommend morning, pre-workout and before bed.

100% Pure Whey Protein – Whey protein comes from milk and has been shown to be the most effective protein in building muscle. As a general rule of thumb you want to consume roughly 1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight per day. This number fluctuates depending on the number of calories you’re consuming in a day, but equals to about 30% of your total calories from proteins.

Multi-Vitamin – Everyone should be taking a strong multi-vitamin no matter what your goals are. I recommend a company called USANA or GNC’s vitamin packs. Obtaining the proper nutrients and vitamins in your diet is a necessity and more often than not, requires a multi-vitamin.

No-Xplode – This product is for mainly men who are looking for an extra jump on their weight gain. Having great experience with this product myself, it has to be high up on my recommendation list.

If you have any further questions on supplementation, just let me know and we can get you started on a proper routine as well as supplement regimen that will have you packing on muscle in no time.
