How To Bulk Up And Show Off Your Muscles!

 How To Bulk Up And Show Off Your Muscles!

How can someone build muscle in a QUICK manner? What does it take to reach my goals? These questions are often heard – at the gym, in the office, and even on the street. The answers can sometimes be difficult to find. Check out this blog for answers to these questions and more tips for building muscle!


Meat products are a good source of protein and help add muscle mass. Eat approximately one gram of meat-protein per body pound. Your body will store more protein this way, which will help you to gain more muscle mass.

Always include the “big three” exercises in your training schedule. They include dead lifts, squats and bench presses. These exercises not only add bulk to your muscles, but they improve your strength and condition your body as well. Make sure you try to include a variation of these types of exercises during your workouts regularly.

Don’t cut out carbs when building muscle. Carbohydrates provide the energy required to complete your weight-training exercises; if you don’t consume enough of them, your body will turn to protein for its energy needs, slowing down your progress. Eating sufficient carbohydrates will not only increase your workout endurance, but give you the energy you need to get through the day.

You must eat carbohydrates, if you wish to build muscle. Carbs provide fuel for your body, giving it the energy to complete your daily routine. It is recommended that, if you wish to train hard, that you should have three grams of carbohydrates for each pound that you weigh.

Compound exercises are a great way of getting a full-body strength training session into a short amount of time. This type of exercise requires you to use different muscles at the same time. A great example of a compound move is a shoulder press from a squat position, which works the legs and shoulders simultaneously.

Create the illusion that your body is larger than it really is. You can do this by focusing your training on your upper chest, your upper back and your shoulders. It also creates more contrast with your waistline so that you look larger.

Exercises that pair up opposing muscle groups, such as the chest and the back or the quads and the hamstrings, can be highly effective. This gives one muscle group a break while you work the opposite and also ensures that you don’t train unevenly and create muscle imbalances. Using such exercises will allow you to increase the intensity and reduce the overall length of your workouts, allowing you to achieve your results while cutting back on your gym time.

Crafting a workout schedule for muscle building will allow your success to continue and will help prevent injuries. Anyone who is new to weight lifting should workout only two times a week, while those who are more experienced can workout three times or more each week.

Getting just the right calorie intake will significantly affect your muscle building results. There are good and bad calories, so you must learn which are the healthiest foods for building muscle. If you eat a poor diet, you will fail to build muscle and will become fat.

To increase your muscle-building efforts, focus on getting the most from bicep curls. In a typical bicep curl, you don’t get a lot of benefit from the top of the curl due to moving your dumbbell or bar beyond the parallel part. The topmost half is easily the most powerful part of these curls. You can correct this with seated barbell curls.

Make sure you examine your body to determine what you can and cannot do. When you do this, you can then understand what kind of goals you should be setting for yourself. When evaluating your body, consider both composition and weight.

One effective strategy is to mix up the kind of grip in the back. Use either a staged or mixed grip when doing deadlifts and rack pulls, as this will help you become stronger. Staggered grips help to twist the bar in one direction, while the underhand grip twists the bar in the opposite way. This type of grip will prevent the bar from moving during lifts.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
