There are different techniques bodybuilders use to build muscle fast. There are the compound weight lifters and the high intensity isolation muscle builders. Most builders do a little of both.
Compound weight lifting is great because you can work many muscles at the same time.Â You spend less time in the gym and can build muscles quickly with these exercises.Â Some examples are squats, dead lifts, push-ups, bench presses, and chin-ups.
The other school off thought is to use higher weights by increasing the intensity (amount of weight). Doing more repetitions is not the way to build muscle fast. It may even have a reverse effect.
Exercising with high intensity also does not take much time in the gym. Start adding weight until you reach your intensity or state of exhaustion. In other words, you do not have to do as many repetitions with a high intensity workout.
If you do not feed your body the right foods you will not get the results you want.Â Bodybuilders often eat six meals a day instead of three. They eat a lot more calories to build muscle.
They have to eat six meals a day to get all that food in. A variety of lean protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and mono-saturated fats is a good bodybuilder’s diet.
Many bodybuilders will workout with weights three times a week, do an aerobic activity three times a week and then take one day off from exercise completely.
Your body needs the proper amount of rest to build muscle. It is when you are at rest that your body is repairing the tissue you have stressed with your workouts. This is when your muscles are growing.
Allow 24 hours between workouts. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep at night. To build muscle fast you need the three components of exercise, diet, and rest.
Weight training or bodybuilding also takes time and dedication. You want to build muscles overnight but you should see some real progress in 8 to 12 weeks.
