Muscle and strength training is a multi-faceted beast. You’ll need a balanced diet and plenty of sleep to maximize your efforts. The good news is that the human body has a remarkable capacity for growth and repair. To get the most out of your workouts, remember that muscles need time to grow and repair.
It’s a good idea to perform cardio before your weight-lifting sessions. A moderate to high-intensity cardio session is a great way to burn calories and get your heart rate up. This also gives you a chance to improve your overall cardiovascular fitness. If you’re feeling energetic, you could even perform a light jog or two.
As far as muscle goes, it’s hard to beat the big lift. One of the best ways to build mass is to train your entire body. However, it’s best to start slow and work your way up. Getting your heart pumping is only the beginning.
Choosing the right exercise is just as important as how many sets and reps you perform. For example, you might be able to perform some pretty impressive squats and deadlifts, but you won’t make much progress unless you’re also lifting your arms. Likewise, doing some heavy leg training is a great way to boost your metabolism and stimulate your leg muscles. Lastly, squeezing the most out of your workouts requires some careful planning and execution.
Considering the amount of calories you’ll be burning in your weight-training routines, you’ll need to fuel your muscles with the right mix of nutrients. For example, you should get about one-fifth of your calories from carbohydrates and the rest from protein and fat. Ideally, you’ll need to take in about 3,000 calories per day.
