Muscle MassA muscle has been defined to be the soft group of tissue wrapping in humans that contract to enable movement of the parts of the body. Thus the extent to which a person moves, especially a sportsman, or his or her physical prowess appears and have been attributed to his relevant success, is greatly determined by the size and function of their muscles.

The bigger the muscle the better and higher chances in winning competitions. This has seen many sportsmen and bodybuilding enthusiasts look for means of gaining the critical muscle mass. And that’s all sportsmen from Golfers through to Body Builders.

The size of the muscles is very much flexible depending on conditions of the body and the personal goal of the person, making loosing or gaining of weight very much possible. Small sized and thin individuals, especially sportsmen, have most likely been on a quest to gain weight so as to appear much bigger or increase their strength, as normally perceived.

Hitting the gym for purpose of gaining big muscles can be worthless if the body is not given the proper watch and care it deserves. You need to eat right, avoid stress and have a good sufficient amount of sleep. But in order to reach your full potential in gaining a well built body that you desire, your body will require supplements as well

Supplements are very essential in the maximization of your body growth potentials. As this site is all about Adding Muscle, we will keep it focused on bodybuilding. Most people that are wanting to build their body have either succeeded positively or negatively.

The ones that have succeeded have used supplements for muscle gain. Even though manufactured supplements are believed to be the quick best option to gain mass, they have been reported to have negative effects like interruption of sleeping patterns, blurry vision and others have gone further to claim that they do reduce the size of a man’s sexual organ (and we are not just talking anabolic Steroids here either).

But most of the time, different supplement effects are not felt by everyone and their success far outweigh the negative effects to most people who get their desires of mass gain fulfilled.

There are a wide range of legal nutritional supplements out there now, include protein supplements. Proteins are responsible in regulation of the tissues of the body to the extent of movement and growth in size. Multivitamins also play a vital role as key supplements. Multivitamin like vitamin C is responsible for enhancing the body’s immune system thus protection from interference with one’s health. Vitamin A, a multivitamin, is good for eyesight.

So its recommended for people who get affected with blurry visions, to make multivitamin A, a key element of their supplemental intake.

When most people who have never stood foot inside a gym think Supplements they think Anabolid Steroids (thanks Arnie), so the blurry vision would also have been caused by wrong use of the supplements or using illegal un-certified steroids that mostly charm people by their low costs and fake guarantees, and have huge negative side effects.

Androstenedione is a legal steroid sold online and has been proven to be safe and very effective in gaining muscle mass. Creatine supplements provide the body with adequate energy so that the body is built fast. Glutamine supplements are responsible for the recovery of your muscles after every sufficient workout and also increase their mass.

The supplements if rightly taken ensure that your body is provided with enough strength and energy to grow muscle mass. Thus knowing the rightful amount of energy that your body requires is crucial in attributing to your success of gaining mass.

Calorie is the measurement of a unit of energy. It is largely affected by the amount of food that we take in. Animal fat, especially the fish oil’s omega 3s, is known to give one a lot of calories. For the vegetarians, vegetable oils are also a rich source of calories for the body. Olive oil seems to be the most preferred and used. Usually packed with oils are the salad dressings. Their calories amount depends on how much sugar has been used. It’s recommended that you avoid this.

Fried and junk foods like snacks also provide lots of calories but due to most of them having cholesterol, that is regarded harmful to your health, it is highly recommended that you avoid these types of calories intake. Cheese and processed meats like hot dogs, are recommended in moderation and unfrequented intake should be up held.

For those in love with nut products especially peanut butter, are encouraged to continue taking them as the foods are a great source of the much needed calories. Chocolate lovers can also continue enjoying their delicacies. Carbohydrates are generally preferred to help one get their calories from, as most of them have little health effects even in large consumptions.

In order to know how much calories you should consume in a day so as to gain the maximum muscle mass, you should know your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and how much daily calories you burn through your activities. Your gym instructor is best suited to measure your height and weigh your weight in order to calculate the BMR and the daily calories you may need.

Calories are greatly boosted by eating the right nutritious meals. Choose the right food that has rich calories content and make sure to eat larger than the usual portion that you are used to. For example, instead of eating a single burger for lunch, try and take two.

At first it may sound absurd to some people and quite difficult to attain, but the body will easily start to adapt as it continues to require more calories to produce energy for the growing muscles mass. It should also be made sure that the food intake is one of consistency as body mass will be gained much faster with the adapting body.

Though the body genetics cannot be changed to allow more production of calories, the energy quantity in the body can be boosted by intake of natural juices and low fat milk, highly acknowledged as a very rich source of calories. Natural fruits like the avocados are also great contributors to energy supply in the body.

Avoid buying of weight gain supplements in case the need to gain more mass is a long term project. They turn to be expensive means. If you are a body builder or sportsman, you should buy the legally approved supplements that have very little known or no effects at all. This is an insight in this regard.
