Add More Muscle: The Ultimate Solutions

FAQ #8: To add more muscle, the right foods, correct fluids, and proper exercise are needed to build muscle mass.

Note: Tone or toning is not the correct word or words to be using when it comes to describing muscles that are strong with good hypertrophy. The correct term is muscle definition for women and muscle size for men.

A. Answering the Question

If you are unhappy with your current physique, you might be interested to know that any change in your muscle mass does not happen overnight. It can take many months or perhaps 1 to 2 years to get the muscular definition you want.

It's just the way our bodies work at the cellular level. You have to be patient when you are trying to add more muscle.

Ok, I gotcha. Now, what can I do to add more muscle?

Follow these three rules ...

First, you need to be consistent with your strength training workouts. Plan for 3 days a week.

Second, you need to incorporate sound nutritional practices along with your strength routines. This means switching to the natural, whole foods way. Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand. You need them both!

Third, always remember that body composition rules and not body weight. This means if you are currently overweight, you need to reduce your weight slowly over time. The rule of thumb is 1/2-to-1 pound per week. So, if you are now 50 pounds overweight you may be looking at 6-to-12 months to normalize your weight and begin sculpting a lean, muscular shape.      

Remember, Body Composition is What Counts!

This is where body composition comes into play. When you begin to lose fat mass slowly over time, you also want to be adding muscle mass at the same time. In this way, you change the amount of muscle you have and keep it that way for good.

If you try and lose body weight too quickly, for each pound of weight you lose, you typically will shed 1/2 pound of fat and lose 1/2 pound of muscle at the same time. This is not a good situation to be in and is a big reason why fad diets fail so often.

What do you mean?

Muscle mass burns up to 70% of all the kilocalories you consume on a daily basis. So, as you are losing body fat, you want to maintain your muscle mass and then increase the amount of muscle mass over time through a well-designed fitness program.

In this way, your body becomes a big metaboliser of food and you get to keep that muscle definition that you worked so hard to build.
