Austin Copeland’s – 5 Tips to Building Lean Muscle
You must train hard, strict, and most importantly, consistently to add quality lean muscle and keep it. Quality muscle and an aesthetically pleasing physique come from full range of motion and intense contractions, not momentum from bouncing or swinging. Trust me, lighten up the weight to increase the muscle!
#2- Proper Nutrition:
You must eat quality macro nutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) and must consume them frequently. Nutrition is the single most important factor in building muscle. Eat every 2-3 hours (in a perfect world), and don’t be mislead, You NEED fats and carbohydrates as much as you do protein.
Just as important and eating right and often, supplementing is a major factor of muscle growth. Even eating every 2-3 hours, it is nearly impossible to attain all of the micronutrients you need to build quality muscle. Even if you eat clean, natural, and organic food, your body can not get all of the required vitamins and minerals it needs to grow. Everyone on the planet should take a multivitamin, even if you have never touched a weight!
Try NCS Organic Total Health Multivitamin, It has everything you’re lacking and is extremely bio available. Stack this product with Xcellerator to build muscle and intensify your workouts. It has not one, two , three, but 5 types of Creatine. Naturally found in the body and used up during training, additional creatine like the types in Xcellerator will definitely speed up your muscle building process. It worked for me and I am an extreme HARDGAINER! Easily mixes and never upsets my stomach. Hard to find products that do that!!
Get at least 8 hours of sleep a night to allow adequate time to recover. Also this allows your body to enter REM sleep, which is when certain muscle building hormones are released that are absolutely essential for recovery (this is when you muscle grow, not in the gym).
#5- Don’t over train:
NOT doing all of the above is almost as detrimental to your muscle building goals as training them too often. If you want to build up a certain body part to be more symmetrical, train it hard, strict, and let it REST! You may need to train that body part differently than all of your others. Less sets and more weight may work for one body part, whereas high reps with little rest may make others grow.
