When you have decided to work out, it will usually have been with one of two specific goals in mind. the first aim of working out is to help you tone your muscles and lose weight; the second aim many people have is to build muscle mass through their workouts.
You need to make sure you know how to accomplish your desired goal, regardless of which of these your desired goal happens to be! This is especially the case when it comes to trying to build muscle mass, as you will certainly be upset and annoyed if you are working out constantly to build muscle mass – only to find that you are not building muscle mass at all. In order to understand how to build muscle mass when working out, it is good to first understand what happens when you work out.
The way that working out works is by tearing your muscles; when you work out, you tear the muscles in your body just a little bit. Your body starts to go to work trying to repair these small tears in your muscles as soon as your workout has finished. If you work out the same muscles the next day, in the same way, you will tear these same areas in your muscles again, and your body will keep trying to repair the tears afterward. In this way, your muscles will begin to tighten, as they continually work to repair themselves. On the other hand, your muscles will have the time to repair themselves completely if you wait a day or two before giving these same muscles another workout. Your muscles will continue to grow larger as you continue to work out like this, as they will keep being able to repair themselves completely in between each workout.
As you see, if you want to build muscle mass, the basic approach is really as simple as just giving a group of muscles a day or two off in between each workout you give them. And make sure you put some protein into your body immediately after your workout if you want to build muscle more quickly. And as time passes, you can watch your muscles grow and grow.
