On March 11, fitness supplement retailer, Muscular Development Store, responds to an article published on Stack, which discusses steps to take when trying to build muscle.
According to Stack, building muscle is not instantaneous but a lengthy process, taking months of training with weights. The article says calories are the most important factor when building muscle and maintaining a strict protein-rich diet can make a significant difference in results. Muscle builders, according to Stack, have to consume more calories than usual because tissue needs fuel to grow.
Stack recommends that muscle builders organize a nutritional meal plan and figure out what their “total daily energy expenditure” needs are by speaking to a health expert or using a calorie calculator online.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for the Muscular Development Store, says the biggest problem for bodybuilders is trying to eat six times per day. “For a person that’s genuinely fit, it’s hard for them to consume that much food in one day,” he says. “Their bodies aren’t used to it. Sometimes using muscle-building protein supplements, like the ones from Gaspari Nutrition, can help with that. Instead of eating small meals, bodybuilders can use supplements to get the nutrients they need without all the filler.”
Turner advises muscle builders to consume protein shakes before workouts to optimize muscle growth. “The shakes will provide your body with the fuel it needs, so you can work out longer and achieve better results.”
Taking progress photos can help determine how you’re improving and how rapidly your muscles are growing, reports Stack.
Turner agrees that taking progress photos can really help calculate growth. “It’s usually very difficult to see progress when you stare at yourself every day,” he says. “Day to day muscle growth is often very subtle, so it can be discouraging. When you take monthly photos, it’s easy to compare and you will definitely notice a difference.”
