Bodybuilding tips

Enhanced Athlete, a health and nutrition company, just won a huge lawsuit against Nutrition Distribution. The company is a leader in the world of bodybuilding. They have superb coaching called Enhanced Coaching, guiding you into the best shape of your life. In this article, I’m going to be breaking down my top three tips on how to gain the most muscle and why. Hopefully, it helps you out with your bodybuilding endeavors.

 

  1. Diet

Nutrition is by far the most important thing when it comes to putting on muscle. If you aren’t hitting your macros consistently, you won’t get consistent results. To start, find out your maintenance calories. Then, either subtract 500 calories from that number or add 500 calories to that number depending on whether you plan to cut or bulk. For example, if my maintenance calories were 3,500 every day, I’d want to shoot for 4,000 on a bulk and 3,000 on a cut. In the morning, weigh yourself. At the end of the week, average your seven daily weights. Do this week by week. Your goal should be to either gain a pound or lose a pound every week. For a cut, this minimizes muscle loss and maximizes fat loss. For a bulk, it maximizes muscle growth and minimizes fat production. At the end of the day, make sure you are consistent with your macros. If you aren’t hitting your one pound per week target, adjust your diet accordingly.

 

  1. Workout

Your workout routine is the second most important thing when it comes to building muscle. Your workouts should be structured around compound lifts like bench press, squats, deadlifts, rows, and shoulder press. This incorporates the most muscle groups into a single exercise, giving you faster results in a quicker amount of time. Generally speaking, these workouts are more intense which typically build the most muscle. Yes, there is a need for isolation lifts. Incorporate these auxiliary lifts after you have done the compound lifts.

 

  1. Sleep

Whatever you do, do not underestimate the power of sleep. On average, adults should be getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep every single night. Sleeping keeps your hormones balanced and allows your body to rebuild itself after an intense workout. If you don’t get the sleep you need, cortisol levels will be increased which will inhibit gains. All in all, try to keep your sleeping schedule as consistent as possible.
