The best exercise to help you build muscles

April 6, 2012

This is a guest post by Sally.

Lots of people want to know how to build muscle, muscle definition and weight, but the simple fact is that there is no one single solution to achieving these aims which will apply exactly to everyone. Essentially the process will be one involving a combination of physical exercise, attention to diet and periods of rest, but the exact types of exercise, dietary requirements and the length of rest periods required by different people in order to achieve the desired results of improved muscle definition and size will vary significantly from one person to the next.

This is because factors such as a person’s metabolism will play a major part in determining how their body responds to exercise, diet and rest, ensuring that each person will need to find a balance that suits them best.

What this means is that, when it comes to working out how to build muscle, that there is no reliable shortcut method to achieving this. It is a matter of determining which combination of exercise, diet and rest works best for your particular needs and those of your metabolism.

When it comes to the exercise part of the process of building and enhancing muscle definition, it is likely that most people will think of weight training as being the most obvious route to achieving this – but it is possible to accomplish this goal with weight-free body exercises as well.

However the process of achieving this through exercise always revolves around stretching and ripping the tissues of the muscles, in order to allow them to grow during the process of repairing themselves. The dietary requirements that will be needed to help you build muscles can vary as well, but they will largely revolve around protein, as this is a vital factor in aiding the growth of muscle tissue during repairs.

It is also important to remember to rest between periods of exercising as the process of repairing ripped muscle tissues will require rest periods as well as protein intake – however the exact periods of rest needed will again vary from person to person. A good supplement to take alongside your training is bcaas, it stimulates protein synthesis and anabolism.

What works best for you?
