Do you find yourself saying I can’t put on muscle? If so, I am going to help you find out why and help you start to put on muscle.
Firstly I am sorry that you are in this position, there is nothing more frustrating than working so hard, only to look the same every week. There are a few reasons why this could be. So to help you as much as I can, I am going to give the most popular answers to the statement ‘I can’t put on muscle. I should say that my answers are usually question thrown back. Confused? Read on and I’ll explain further.
I Can’t Put On Muscle? How Do You Train?
I will start with the most popular answer to I can’t put on muscle, which is the weight lifting training aspect. My usual response is asking how you train, or what sort of workouts do you use. There are usually two camps here. One person goes to the gym with no real focus and just does a few exercises thrown together. The other does 5 days a week, focusing on one body part, per session.
Does any of this relate to you?
Whatever side of the line you fall on, you need to find a happy medium. If you are just messing around with a few exercises you need to start thinking of your body as a whole. Your body does not like putting on muscle just on your arms and chest. Also, to get as much muscle as possible you need to challenge your body with big movements. To literally force it to put muscle on. Does that make sense?
If you are doing body part splits with one body part a week, you are probably doing too much. You are probably damaging the muscle that much. That it can only recover the damage you are doing but not actually build more muscle.
Like a said you much strive for a happy medium. Three full-body workouts or an upper and lower split is what you need to be aiming for. If you can get that right you can stop asking why I can’t put on muscle. With that out of them, there is another question I ask. This one is where most people fail and I urge you to give it attention. If you do, you are on your way to big muscle gains. Click here to see What results can you expect from CrazyBulk D-Bal?
I Can’t Put On Muscle? What Is Your Nutrition Like?
My second stupid, answer with a question malarkey, (where do I think these things up?) Is asking about your nutrition when someone says ‘I can’t put on muscle.
I cannot strive enough who important this is, but so many people blow it off. It is similar to trying to build a house without any bricks or mortar. You cannot build something without the raw material to do so.
You must be supplying your body with plenty of food to build put on muscle. Not to worry though. If you are worried about fat gain, you should not be because eating the right way will ensure all that food goes to the right places.
Onto my last answering question stupidity….
I Can’t Put On Muscle? Do You Rest Up?
Let me let you in on a little secret. You do not grow muscle in the gym (apart from a temporary blood pump). All you do in the gym is damage your muscles. Then afterward your body says “holy good f***, what just happened there?”
So it repairs the damage you done in the gym, then adds a little extra muscle to stop that ever happening again. However, this does not happen if you do not give yourself adequate rest to let your body do its thing.
Simply put: Stimulate your muscles in the gym; Give your muscle food to build with; Rest and let your body recover and grow.
Does that make more sense, once I stop all my idiotic answering with questions? I hope it does.
I want to help you as much as possible so that you can stop saying I can’t put on muscle.
To do so you need to put all this together and make it work for your own individual needs. General information for the masses will only get you so far (this is maybe the main problem you are having).
