Maximize muscle growth naturally with these Amazing tips and techniques
It’s straight forward. You want to build more muscle… and fast. You don’t want to add a pound of fresh beef each year – you want more! You want a thick, striated chest, peaked biceps, sweeping quads and a “bat wing” V taper! To accelerate your path to the ultimate physique, here are 9 Amazing nutrition rules to build muscle fast.
1: Eat a LOT of protein
Muscle is made of protein. To build muscle, you need to boost muscle protein synthesis, as well as decrease muscle breakdown. Research in the lab and the gym confirms that the best way to do this is with a diet that gets you a minimum of one gram per pound of bodyweight (a little over two grams of protein per kg of bodyweight) and closer to about 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight (about three grams of protein per kg bodyweight). Some do even better with even more than this amount by getting closer to two grams. This is especially true for those following a more intense training program.
So, for a 210 pound lifter that wants to get to 225, you will need 225 pounds x 1.5 g/pound = 337.5 g of protein per day. This is calculated based on your goal weight, not your current weight.
