After a few months of training you’ll already know that in order to grow you need to be consistent at the gym and you need to be focusing on your big compound lifts in order to get the most from your body. So today we’re going to look at a few tips which fitness enthusiasts tend to forget about.

The most ridiculous aspect of the health and fitness industry is the amount of conflicting advice out there. Particularly online, which is a virtual mix and match bag of completely different theories. This leads to so many people becoming incredibly lost with their fitness that they just have no clue where to start. In order to get consistent results it’s a good idea to get the basics down first.

If you don’t know how to build muscle today’s interview will assist you a lot.

There are three questions we are asked in the gym more than any others when it comes to building size and strength. They are as follows…

* How many reps is best for a strength and size goal?

* What do you need to eat?

* How often should you train each muscle?

You should be hitting the hypertrophy zone with your rep range. Each set should be carefully aimed at a maximum of twelve reps, this ensures you land in the perfect zone for growth. So stop with the endless sets of twenty five with light weights. If you are trying to build you don’t necessarily have to work harder, just smarter.

Once you have got used to training with your specific goal in mind and you begin to look for ways to further shake things up you won’t be short on choice. One of the best ways to do this is using techniques like strip sets, super sets and add sets. These will not only provide a great pump but will also stimulate further growth.

If you need some help with your diet don’t worry, you are in the right place. We are going to show you the basics of a good building diet which will allow you to add size but also ensure it’s not fat.

Eating the right type of food will determine what type of size you add. You can’t expect to get big and stay lean if you are feasting on junk foods. Remember it’s not just about how many calories you consume, it’s also about where those calories come from.

You do not need to watch every single calorie, of course, but having a rough idea of what to eat is an advantage. The 3-5-2 concept has proven most effective and will keep you on the right track. Try to split your calories between 30% protein, 50% carbohydrate and 20% fat. That simple idea is the basis of a solid building diet.

The most overlooked aspect of training is rest. You should try to avoid going to the gym every day, the more rest you allow your body the chance to grow. So be sure to pack in a few days of kicking back from your training. If it proves hard to resist the urge to go workout, think of a rest day as a day of growth.
