A lot of people think that it is easy to increase body mass, however when it comes to actually doing it many people fail. So why is this? The reason is mostly because they are not following the fundamental principles needed in order to gain mass. This article will explain to them in details so that you can be able to gain more body mass. You might be wondering why increasing body mass is important. If you are a bodybuilder then you are probably aware just how important increasing your body mass is, especially since a lot of people equate it to how successful you are in bodybuilding. If you are a bodybuilder and yet your body mass is not adequate enough then your progress will not be appreciated no matter how symmetrical your body is.
Therefore you should emphasize the following if you want to increase your body mass;
1. Supplement your diet with Glutamine, Creatine and BCAA
Glutamine can also be referred to as immunity amino. The body tends to get stressed out especially after intense training and dieting. When this happens the body will start releasing glutamine in the blood stream which helps relieve the stress. Muscle growth is really inhibited if you have very low levels of glycogen. And that is why you need to supplement the body with glutamine.
The other benefit of glutamine is that it leads to more strength and enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Adenosine triphosphate is responsible for providing the necessary fuel required to perform intense training and facilitate growth. Therefore when you supplement creatine in your body, this consequently leads to an increase in the production of ATP and therefore you are able to increase your strength.
When glycogen fuels drop, branched chain amino acids (BCAA) act as fuel sources for the body. Thus when you supplement them in your diet you will be able to increase the levels of nitrogen. This has the positive effect of preventing catabolism and therefore you are able to achieve mass gain.
2. You need to do some power lifting to increase your body strength
Power lifting is also very important if you want to increase your body mass. You need to lift very heavy weights so that you can be able to effect maximum damage on your muscles. If you are not able to effect maximum damage on your muscles then you will not be able to experience great body transformation in terms of increase in muscles. Therefore observe techniques such as compound movements and progressive resistance training.
3. Avoid aerobics
Aerobics are not of any use to a person wishing to put on more body mass since it leads to the burning of calories. Aerobics also deplete the body of its glycogen level and at the same time lead to lose of strength. However if you’re interest was to lose body mass then aerobics will be very useful.
Rest is also important when it comes to putting on more mass. This is because when you rest you are able to replenish the body’s glycogen levels.
