The Best Kept Secrets For Building Muscle Effectively


 Building muscle is often a challenging proposition. Not only do you have to remain dedicated to a workout regimen that stresses the muscles, but you must also eat right. Not getting the results you want can be disheartening. The tips laid out in this blog will help you achieve the results you want without wasting time.



Make sure to research the best exercises for increasing muscle mass. There are many different exercising options that are available to muscle builders, including toning multiple groups of muscles at the same time. Make sure you are using muscle building techniques and have a wide variety of exercises to work on the different muscle groups.


To increase muscle mass in the most efficient way possible, you need to warm up before each and every workout. As your muscles work, heal and expand, they become more prone to injuries. If you take the time to warm up first, you can do your best to prevent any type of injury from happening. Do five or ten minutes of light exercise before lifting, followed by a few light to intermediate sets of warm-up lifts.


Try mixing up your workout routine. Workout routines can become boring over time, which may keep you from sticking with it. Make it a little different by switching the exercise you do, each time you go to the gym. By adjusting your workouts, you keep them interesting and you will stay engaged.


Creatine supplements are popular in the muscle building community. However, they must be treated with caution. People with kidney problems are generally advised to refrain from creatine use. There are other side effects from creatine, including heart arrhythmias and muscle disorders like cramping. Teenagers have a higher rate of complications due to their growing body’s needs. Try to ensure that you use the supplements safely if you decide you are going to integrate them into your workouts.


Consuming a sufficient amount of protein is a significant factor in building muscle. An excellent method of consuming an adequate amount of protein is by making use of supplements, such as protein shakes. They are especially beneficial after a workout and also right before going to bed. To replace fat with muscle faster, consume at least one protein shake a day. If you want to bulk up in mass as well as muscle, then you can consume as many as three daily.


Compound exercises will help you obtain the best possible muscle growth. These types of exercises utilize many different muscle groups in one lift. An example is bench pressing, which works not only your chest, but also your triceps and shoulders, in just one exercise.


It can be extremely hard to build muscle. Your workouts will not only be very high in intensity, you will also need to do them on a regular basis. Your diet is just as important as your exercise routine. Considering the amount of effort that you have to put into this goal, it can be quite disheartening if you are not capable of reaching it. Stick to the above tips to ensure you get your desired muscle building results.

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.
