So you are working out, or are even considering working out, however the results are taking what seems to be forever to show! No problem, with just a couple simple changes to your life, you will start seeing results easily and fast. Here are the secrets to getting your fit body to show through faster than you think:
Vary your routine weekly
It’s very easy to find a routine and want to stick to it forever since you are familiar with the activities. However, just as you become familiar with your routine so do your muscles which mean you are no longer challenging them. Once your muscles are trained you will stop building muscle mass and simply maintain it which will not help you build large muscles in the short term or the long term. For best results you should vary the number of sets and reps you perform weekly.
Increase your protein intake
With all the extra activity you are participating in you need to remember to feed your muscles if you want them to become big and strong. Protein is the ingredient that your muscles need to build and repair, so make sure you increase your intake so that they can grow to their maximum size quickly. Whey protein in particular is an excellent growth food if you are working on building large muscles which you can find in a powder form that can easily be consumed in shakes.
Rest and drink plenty of water!
The doctors seem to always be saying this; however consider when you are working out to treat your body how you would treat it if you were ill. Muscles need time and nutrients to repair; just like your body would if you are sick; so always give this time in between and during workouts as well for your body to naturally replenish itself. Drinking lots of water will also fill out your veins, make you feel better, and allow proper production of your muscles; in a shorter time. Results would be more evident this way.
