To know what really works when it comes to bodybuilding and muscle gain is everything.
There is one mistake though that lots of people do which keeps them from gaining the body that they are dreaming about having.
Gaining Muscle – What is it? – Overtraining
A lot of people and especially those that are new to bodybuilding might think that the fastest way to achieve huge muscle gain is to work out like crazy, and begin going to the gym each day of the week for over an hour each time. They work out and work out and then they work out a bit more until their muscles really ache.
Then they begin to wonder why they don’t get the results they are looking for and maybe they add an extra session a day and think that it will give them the success they’re seeking. Wrong!
After a few weeks, their bodies will likely be so stiff and aching that they won’t even be able to do a work out, and this is probably the best thing that has happened to them in a while in regards to their muscle building progress.
The secret to gain a muscular body is directly related to how often you work out and how much time you are spending at the gym. And believe me, less is more in this case. Overtraining will not add to your muscle mass at all, instead it will create tired, overworked and broken muscle tissue that will requireall the energy you’re giving your body to simply keep it alive.
Knowing how often to work out is essential if you’re really serious about your muscle gain, and should not be overlooked. In this report I will give you the guidelines that tells you how often I recommend you to work out and also how long your sessions should be each time.
Gaining Muscle – First: How often?
You want to make sure that each muscle group you are working out gets enough rest in between each work-out session. Make it a minimum of 72 hours as a rule and stick to it, then you’ll make sure that your muscles get the amount of time they need to fully repair.
Gaining Muscle – Why is it that you shouldn’t train more often?
Most people don’t get it that you don’t gain muscles while you’re at the gym working out. The muscles grow afterwards when you are resting. If you work out the muscles too often, they get stressed, won’t be able to build new muscle tissue (which is want you want for muscle growth) and you’ll end up with little or no improvement.
You have to wait until the muscles are fully repaired and then you can give them a new work out which will add to what you gained since your last session. By giving the muscles a good workout at the gym and then letting them recover, you’ll ensure that your body adds the extra muscle tissues.
