Muscle and strength are both essential parts of a fitness regimen. However, they are different. Strength is the ability to perform tasks that require effort. A big, powerful muscle can give you a better grip on a heavy object, or lift more weight. Whether you’re a professional athlete, or just want to increase your muscle size, there are a few things you should know.
For instance, you need protein to build muscle. And while you can get a lot of protein from animal products, you also need to eat a balanced diet to make sure you’re getting all of the nutrients you need to boost your muscles. Animal-based diets tend to be deficient in some key nutrients, like vitamin C, folate, potassium, and fiber.
The same goes for plant-based diets. Plants are rich in nutrients that help your muscles grow. Nitrate-rich plants, in particular, can help you bench press 19% more weight.
One of the best ways to improve your muscle and strength is through strength training. Resistance training increases your body’s natural capacity to grow muscle tissue. It also helps you burn calories, which strengthens your cardiovascular system.
Another benefit of lifting is that it can help you develop mental fortitude. As you exert stress on your muscles, they start to produce important proteins in your brain, which helps to strengthen your mental resolve and prevent injury. Moreover, lifting can help you improve your overall mood.
Finally, don’t forget that your muscles need to be properly nourished to recover and repair after a workout. If you’re not eating a balanced diet, your body will be unable to produce the protein it needs.
