If you are in a workout state of mind, one of your goals may be to gain lean muscle mass fast. You may see commercials or hear wives tales about how to do this, but most of these are just hype. While you can gain lean muscle mass fast, it’s not easy and it takes a lot of dedication on your part, to make sure your body is getting the right exercise and the right nutrients to benefit from that exercise. Here is what you need to do.
Increase Protein Intake
The first thing you need to do is make sure your body has the protein it needs to do the job you want accomplished. Protein is the building block that is used to create muscle in the body. You want to look for lean proteins, such as beans, lean meat and fish, to only increase your protein intake and not your fat intake.
It’s In the Weight
While cardio is very healthy, it is not going to build lean muscle mass quickly. Weight lifting is. You should make sure your weight lifting exercises focus on the muscle groups where you want the lean muscle to build. Choose the weight for each exercise based on a weight that taxes you (you should really be pushing by the 10th-12th rep), but not so much that you hurt yourself.
Drink Enough Water
Water is essential for the body to be able to do it’s job properly. Make sure you are adequately hydrated during your workouts and throughout the day.
Not only does your diet need to have lean meat, but also all of the other food groups need to be represented. Making sure you have well-balanced meals will give your body the fuel it needs to run at top strength.
It is practically impossible to gain muscle without the proper guidance
