Muscle Building HacksAug 22, 2018
Wanna make some gainz bro?
Muscle building can be time consuming and painful. Here are some hacks to get you on the right path to your perfect body.
This article features the brand new Creatine HCL and how you can use it to build muscle even faster!
Set Strength Goals
Get Stronger, Not Just Bigger.
We’ve all seen the guy in the gym who’s huge in size and can barely even lift his arms.
Don’t be that guy.
Increasing your muscle strength improves your body’s ability to pack on muscle fibers which will definitely show a change in physique. If you set rational goals to lift more and more each day, your body will definitely start to build the muscle.
Start Tracking your Food
Count your calories. Count your protein.
Clear some space on your phone. Delete Clash of Clans and all of those random “before” photos.
There are plenty of apps out there that help to track food and nutrition. It is so easy to enter what exactly you’re eating which gives you access to all of the nutrition information that you’ve consumed throughout the day. You can even program in whether you want to gain weight or lose weight depending on your preference. The typical goal for protein when trying to build muscle is .8 grams per pound of muscle. If you weigh 170 lbs you want to eat about 136 grams of protein.
Check out this chart to figure out what your protein intake should be for a day:

Focus on Compound Exercises
Two Birds, One Stone.
Don’t be the dude that has never heard of leg day… or legs at all.
Lifts that work more than one muscle at a time are compound exercises.
Great Exercise Examples:
When performing any of these exercises, be sure to use weights that will be heavy enough so that you will feel it working but not so heavy that it’s difficult to perform the exercise correctly.
Not only do these types of lifts improve muscle growth, they also increase testosterone levels. They should be the focus of your workout while isolation should be the extra add ons for later.
If you insist upon training one muscle at a time, put a lot more weight on the muscle than you normally would to increase muscle mass in that area.
8 Hours Seem Unrealistic?
We understand your creepy Nosferatu ways.
Cut off the TV and the computer and go to bed! We know it’s hard to chose between Netflix, and gains. However, going to bed just 30 minutes earlier will improve your recovery time and lead to more successful gains. Even if you’re getting more sleep than usual, your body will recover faster after a workout and build the muscle in your sleep (source). So you can afford to miss one episode of Archer.
Try Some Supplements
Build Muscle, Save Time.

Overall, muscle building takes time and care. Be patient with your body and let it evolve at it’s own pace!
