The process of building muscle is very similar to losing body fat. One is that you need to be in a calorie surplus (eating more calories than you are burning) and the other is that you need to be in a calorie deficit (burning more calories than you are eating). Along with that weight training along with progressive overload Is number one priority. Are you getting stronger over time in your compound lifts?

When it comes to building muscle hard work, patience and consistency are probably the three most important traits to have when approaching this. There is no way round it and there is no end result. It is important to adopt a training style that the individual will enjoy. Enjoying the process of learning new techniques and progressing your training over time is essential for long term sustainability. If you do not enjoy it then the chances are you may not stick to it.

Along with eating in conjunction to your goals, learning the fundamentals are essential. The big compound lifts such as: Squats, Deadlifts, Rows and Presses will produce the most amount of testosterone leading to quick muscle gains. Incorporating both strength training and hypertrophy is the best way to go to get the best of both training protocols. The stronger you become over time will lead you to be able to lift more weight when it comes to hypertrophy or high repetition work. Progressive overload over time will ensure that you are heading in the right direction. Progressive overload can mean an increase in weight, sets or repetitions over time so recording your numbers are vastly important.

 In terms of nutrition you will learn and adopt a nutritional plan that works around your lifestyle. You will make sure that you are eating the right balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats that compliments your training. You will look to fuel your workouts and time your carbohydrate intake around your training so you can get the best possible approach to lifting weights.

 As building muscle is very gradual, recording your progress as much as you can will be your number tool. At Blueprint Fitness each client has their very own online programme hub. We use monthly photos, girth measurements, your individual programme hub and your own online weight tracker so you know every session, every week and month you will have a review of your progress which you know you are getting.

 With your own accountability coach there with you all of the way you can set realistic short term and long term goals to ensure you are developing your education of your nutrition, weight training and how this is going to help you build muscle at a rate you will be satisfied at.
