Things to Keep In Mind for Effective Muscle Building

The American Heart Association and the ACSM or “American College of Sports Medicine”had actually come up with their latest recommendations for physical fitness and activity. They suggested that Americans must perform and incorporate some sort of a resistance training program along with their regular cardio workouts minimum twice every week and they must focus on making the major muscle group work actively. Here are some of the things to keep in mind and follow religiously if you wish to build your muscles effectively.

Trimming Your Training Period Could Prove To Be Fruitful

You must follow bodybuilding expert’s mantra if you are hoping to build muscles effectively. Your body seems to be just like dynamite. If you keep poking it using a pencil all day, certainly it would not explode. All you need to do is to effectively hammer it once and see the explosion happen. It is better to concentrate on 40 minutes of rigorous training as compared to 90 minutes of sheer nonsense. 40 minutes devoted to hard training is enough to give you an enviable lean core.

Do Not Get Stuck at the Same Exercises

It is better not to perform the same workout again and again. It could be pretty boring and ineffective. Experts never perform the same exercises twice. Monotony is your greatest enemy and would be draining away all your motivational spirits.  Moreover, if you keep training and working on the same set of muscles 7 days a week, there could be strength imbalances and you may get injured by ignoring the stabilizing muscles.

Know Your Goals & Targets

Before you start training, it is important to know your objective precisely. Why exactly are you trying to opt for muscle building? You must be 100 percent sure about the reason why you are concentrating on building your body. You need to be dedicated and serious. It should not be a casual or a passing phase. You should not go for half-hearted workout sessions. If you train hard and with full concentration, you would start seeing the results and nothing could be a better motivator than that.

Eat Smart

Muscle building necessitates a careful and conscious balance of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. You must incorporate a lot of minerals and vitamins in your diet. Do not consume carbohydrate-heavy foods that could trigger insulin levels to go up. This could be resulting in inhibiting or arresting the growth hormones that boost muscle growth. Stick to five to six small and balanced meals daily. Remember protein is the key to build up muscle mass. You would be requiring the essential amino acids. You may rely on supplements and protein shakes. You may avail the best prohormone stack at

Adequate Sleep Is Necessary

Factors like depression, high blood pressure, and even sleep deprivation could be responsible for inhibiting the growth hormone that helps in muscle building. You must try and get a minimum of seven to eight hours of sound sleep at night.


You must keep the above dictates in mind and try to follow them religiously. However, you could give a serious thought about hiring a qualified and experienced trainer to guide you every step of the way. Your trainer must be equipped with relevant certifications provided by the American Council on Exercise, National Academy of Sports Medicine, or ACSM. It would be great if your trainer has additional certifications in first aid and CPR.
