When starting out with building muscle and getting rid of cellulite, you may find a ton of varying advice on how to do it properly. There are so many techniques out there, so many different diets, workouts, plans, supplements, that you might get confused and not know where and how to start. Everyone knows the basics, and most people ignore them because they seem too old school to actually work or deliver optimal results. That is why so many look for quick diets, routines and flavor of the month programs that are “guaranteed” to give “fast and great” results with “very little work”. You should realize by now that there is no such thing. With the right approach and some common sense however, you too can start losing weight and building quality muscle the right way. Here are some basic things you should be doing to get started properly.
45 Minutes Per Day
This is the ideal and recommended time for your daily workout. Nothing more, nothing less, and you’ll have your muscle building hormone working in your favor. When you push yourself to work out for longer periods of times in the beginning, you’ll tire easily, and may find yourself close to giving up. Your body will feel drained from energy and your muscles might get strains, stopping you from exercising regularly. This is a classic case of less is more, because by working out just 45 minutes, you’ll do just enough for your body to get the required workout session while not exhausting yourself in the process.
Eat Protein Throughout The Day
You should be eating some protein as soon as your daily workout is finished. Also eat protein in the morning and right before getting into bed. These don’t have to be large meals, actually smaller more regular meals are key for this to work to its full potential. Protein bars, healthy meals, protein shakes and protein rich recipes should be your focus. Search for new things you can eat to always bring variety and fresh options to your diet. Unlike fat, protein doesn’t get stored in your body and that is why it is essential you combine regular muscle building workouts with ingesting protein.
Also of note is that many people believe they need to lower their calorie intake when building muscle but this is indeed false. You need to eat a lot of calories and even create a surplus so your body can better regenerate muscle. Protein and calories are key to muscle weight gain. And of course drink a lot of water.
Work Out With A Coach
One common mistake people make when wanting to build muscle is to go about it alone, with little advice and no outside help whatsoever. Getting an experienced coach to guide you will work wonders and will enable you to achieve the desired results in the shortest amount of times possible. Your coach will help you devise a specific plan tailor made for yourself and he or she will make sure you stick to it.
These are just some simple tips to help you getting started. Follow them and you’ll achieve success in building muscle and finally developing that nice toned body you’ve been dreaming of!
