MUSCLE GROWTH HABITS
There are many misconceptions when it comes to building muscle. Most of us have been conditioned to believe that we need to kill ourselves with heavy weights all the time, and live in the gym. There are better ways to do it. Here are several habits you’ll want to incorporate into your life:
1.) Lift at least 3 times a week. Focus mostly on compound movements, making sure each major body part is targeted at least 2-3x a week. Work with heavy, medium, and light weights with different rep ranges. Your aim is not to kill yourself each workout session, but to have steady progress over time.
Some workouts will be heavy and intense, and others will be light and easy. It’s essential that you follow a workout program that has those elements built in.
2.) Be conscious of your protein consumption. Develop a “protein lens” for which you view your food. You want to consume at least .7g-1g per lb of bodyweight. Ensure you have a high protein source with every meal you eat.
3.) Eat enough calories. What makes this easier is to not skip any meals, and to eat until you’re full each and every time. I recommend tracking your calories to ensure you get enough everyday, otherwise you’re just shooting in the dark.
4.) Get enough sleep. Muscle grows in your sleep, not in the gym. To ensure optimal recovery and growth, allow yourself to have 7-9 hours of quality sleep every night. Develop a sleep routine to get to bed at a reasonable time each night.
