Have you been working out for a while and you are not noticing significant or any muscle gains ? Well, this might clear some things up for you, because I'm about to reveal the most crucial needs for muscle building.
Lack of sleep will make you moody the next, not only that, it affects your recovery and performance in the gym, while you might not feel ''Shitty'' because you missed only a couple of hours but your body will suffer from that. Try sleeping for 7-9 hours per night, especially if you are trying to build or lose weight, your muscles only recover during sleep thanks to protein synthesis and the anterior pituitary gland, which releases growth hormone.
Nutritions role in building muscles
The most important part of building muscle is choosing what fuel you use. In this case, protein is your go-to, forget the junk food if you want to see real results, at first including more protein in your meals should suffice, later on, to reach your goals, you will have to track calories and make sure you hit your protein goals every day, follow this blog for foods that are high in protein here. If it's still hard to keep up with daily macros, try protein powders, an easy alternative for you.
Giving it all you got.
No pain, no gain, yes it is true, try going until failure, this will give you a sick pump as well as results. The pump is more important than you think, I can guarantee you, that you will get addicted to its feeling and the worst part of your day will be feeling your pump fade away. Chasing a pump is a great way to push yourself to the limit.
Try getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep, get more protein in and destroy the gym, a wise and big man once said “Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weights.”
