To get muscles fast, there are 4 pieces to the puzzle. Before we get into the article, I want to talk about a new discovery that I have stumbled upon.
My New Discovery
Ever notice the physical transformations that Hollywood Actors go through?
- Brad Pitt in Fight Club
- Ryan Reynolds in Blade Trinity
- Taylor Lautner in New Moon
- Chris Hemsworth in Thor
Most fitness experts claim that it’s impossible to get that much muscle in a short period of time. But time after time, these actors just keep showing up with their transformations. It turns out that there is a specific method to achieve this muscle growth fast and naturally.
There is a program that is designed to create that transformation for you in just 3 months. It teaches you how to develop the right muscles in order to create that visual impact. To learn more about it, check out my Hollywood Physique Review.
Now, onto the article:
1. Exercise your muscles the right way
Most people think you need to lift more weights in order get bigger muscles. But in reality, the best way to increase the size of your muscles is to do less weight and more repetitions.
Here is what happens when your muscles get bigger:
- When you workout your muscles, the number of muscle cells don’t increase.
- When your muscles get bigger, the individual muscle cells get bigger
- Most of your muscle cells are made up of a fluid, the fastest way to increase the volume of this fluid is to do less weight and more repetitions. When you do this, the size of your muscles grow bigger much faster.
2. Get enough rest, don’t overtrain
When you workout, you are putting enough stress on your muscles to cause micro-tearing. When you rest, your body heals your muscles and rebuilds them to get bigger and stronger than before. Your muscles are growing when you are resting, do not take this area lightly, try to get 8 hours of sleep every night. Train hard, rest well.
3. Have a nutritional diet
In order for your body to rebuild itself, it needs the right building blocks. You need to eat well, don’t eat crappy foods with empty foods. You need to eat foods that are nutrient dense.
Protein is important, but so are the other macro and micro nutrients. Your body needs the right vitamins, minerals, fats, etc…to function optimally. Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as well.
Now, moving onto the last piece of the puzzle…
4. HGH – Human Growth Hormone
HGH is a hormone that helps you build muscle and lose fat. To get muscles fast, you need to enhance your body’s natural ability to produce HGH. There are 2 ways to do this: Compound Exercises, HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training
Compound Exercises are exercises that use multiple large muscle groups in the movement. Compound exercises include benchpress, deadlift, squats, pull-ups, etc…When you engage multiple large muscle groups in a movement, it signals your body to produce more HGH. These movements are like double wins. Not only does it workout the engaged muscle groups, it also triggers higher HGH production
HIIT is a way of doing cardio. There are four different kinds of muscle fibers in your body. Another way to trigger higher HGH production is to engage your super fast twitch muscle fibers, this is what HIIT accomplishes. This way of doing cardio involves alternating between going all out and taking a rest. The original way of doing this was going all out for 20 seconds then taking a 10 second break, repeat for a total of 8 intervals.
