5 Secrets About MuscleBuilding That Most Fitness Influencers Dont Talk About

3


Have you ever wondered why despite following every tip and trick provided by your favourite bodybuilder on social media, you’re still not achieving your goal of emulating their look? You’re still buying supplements and cranking it out endlessly in the gym like they’re asking you to, but you’re getting nada.

Could it be possible that among their oh, so many gems of wisdom, they are leaving out some really crucial advice? 

Listed below are 5 major muscle-building secrets that your favourite bodybuilder is probably not telling you:

1) Energy Balance

This is hands down the most important factor when it comes to changing your body composition. Calories are king and they decide your body composition. If your goal is to lose fat, then you need to be in a negative energy balance aka calorie deficit. If your goal is to gain muscle, you need to be in a positive energy balance aka calorie surplus.

2) Flexible Dieting

“Carbs from white rice is the same as the carbs from an ice-cream”

You don’t have to eat all your meals with rice, chicken and broccoli. You can have a wide variety of foods in your diet to complete your calories per day. Sustainable dieting can help you keep you happy mentally. 

3) Meal Frequency

You don’t have to consume 7 meals per day to grow muscle. Muscle growth directly comes from training and nutrition augments it. In simple terms, you need to train hard and be in a calorie surplus.

4) Progressive Overload

You must progress in the gym over time. This is done by adding a set or a rep or by adding load per muscle. Volume (sets x load x reps) is the main key to grow new muscle tissue.

5) Training Period

Muscle growth takes a huge-ass time to grow, as you need to give years and years to achieve the look you’ve always wanted. Don’t expect overnight changes. 

So, there you go. I’m sure you weren’t expecting this but honestly, it’s what matters the most. These are the very basics you need to keep in mind before putting your body through a significant change.

And I am sorry, I did not tell you that BCAAs absolutely DON’T matter.
