My goal: to increase my weight through building lean muscle mass.
In principle, without excessive food consumption, our body assimilates the calories we needed to function optimally. For people with a more developed metabolism, the body uses more calories to meet the demands of the body. This feature depends on our gender, body composition, muscle / fat ratio, daily activity and genetics.
We will start by conditioning our body to increase the caloric need. I achieved this by doing more sports and being generally more active in life. This way of life will automatically increase your appetite because the body now needs more calories to develop muscle mass. This energy is simply obtained via
So we need to eat not only more, but properly, so that the body uses our reserves of carbohydrates and fat to function properly, proteins for muscle repair without degrading muscles by breaking down muscle fibres.
Whether you're doing martial arts or jogging, my next tip in mass gain is incorporating complimentary workouts with the goal of muscle building. This involves heavier weights / resistance with more and slower repetitions. I encourage the use of compound, clean and complete movements to develop "long and functional" muscles while trying to outdo oneself without injury (eg, squats and pumps of suits with added weight).
Do not be afraid to become a "Hulk". Unless you follow an "athlete" diet with over 3500 kcal per day and an intensive weight training program involving very heavy weights, you are not going to develop a bodybuilder's body.
Thanks to this way of training, our muscle fibres need to be rebuilt in order to develop muscle mass. As a result, we need more protein in order to recover better.
To increase your protein intake healthily and ecologically, please refer to my blog post on this topic.
Finally, of course, you have to feel good and confident about yourself in order to progress and achieve those goals. Long periods of stress, lack of sleep, etc. will not help at all to achieve or maintain a healthy body!
