So, here are a few simple tips to follow so you can get ripped and become a babe-magnet in no time.
Whether you're looking to get lean and cut or bulk up like a bodybuilder, it's important to have a solid weight gain program to prevent future frustrations, feelings of defeat, and to ensure you reach your goal successfully.
It's as simple as jotting down your goals, like where you'll want to work out, the type of foods you should eat, etc.
Consider it your roadmap towards muscle haven.
You shouldn't leave home without it.
There is still an ongoing debate about supplements and whether or not you actually need them to help build muscles.
If it's any consolation, supplements could help and not all successful bodybuilders use them.
It's been a proven fact that there's not a pill in the world that will turn your puny little biceps into bulging Hulk meat without actually doing any work out.
So, if you're thinking about taking supplements, it's important to stay informed about all their benefits, if any, as well as their side-effects.
If you're just starting out, it may be in your best interest to invest in a weight training program at your gym.
After just a few sessions with a certified instructor, you'll feel comfortable and confident enough to go at it solo.
But whether it's with the knowledge you gain from reading a weight training book or from hiring a bodybuilder-turned trainer, starting out right with proper guidance is the key.
Even if you're spending 2-3 hours pumping iron, but all the while gorging on junk, don't expect to see results.
Bodybuilders concentrate nearly 80 percent of their weight training on the foods they eat.
Certain foods, especially those high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids are typically what you'll find in their diet.
But remember, how much you should eat all depends on your body type and your goal.
You've done the hard part, so no doubt you would want to know weeks down the road whether or not you've even left the starting gate.
Tracking your weight gain and progress is key and perhaps the most important part of your muscle building program.
Just making notes of your daily routine, your daily food intake, and the number of daily reps, etc...
will not only help you keep on track towards your goal, but it will also help you see how far you've come from where you started -- a definite boost to your motivation.
