Seeking Some Sound Ways to Exercise and Build Muscle Quickly
When you are trying to build muscle, some exercises are better than others. They can help you maximize the effects of each and every workout.
What are the keys to building muscle and keeping it on?
1. Supersets work complementary muscles one right after the other.
To get the best results from your workout, make them short and difficult. Building muscle is not about marathon-length exercise sessions but about challenging your muscles.
The best way to challenge your muscles is supersetting. This is when you pair two exercises with no rest period in between.
Supersetting works by exercising two muscle groups in consecutive movements with very short periods of rest between sets. Your muscles are challenged more, and you reduce your risk of injury because there is much less strain on your joints and tendons.
Supersets allow you to see results more quickly, in addition to making your workouts more effective, efficient, and safe. You can superset exercises for back and chest muscles, quad and hamstrings, and more. An example is doing tricep kickbacks with bicep curls with no rest in between the two moves.
2. Raise the difficulty level with compound exercises.
Short, intense workouts are essential in building muscle. You should limit your sessions to no more than 35-40 minutes, and up the intensity so they are very strenuous.
A great way to both increase your intensity and see results is to use compound exercises, in which more than one muscle is required to do the move. Some examples are:
* Adding an overhead press to your walking lunges
* Completing a pushup with side planks
* Pairing squats with overhead presses
* Adding bicep curls to lunges
* Pushups with one armed row
These moves allow you to add intensity, work on balance and coordination, and work different muscle groups at the same time. This reduces your risk of injury, makes your workouts more effective, improves your functional fitness, and builds muscle.
3. Muscle growth requires rest.
Working out helps you build a good foundation for muscle growth, but the actual development takes place when you rest. Building rest into your routine is essential.
If you continually strain your muscles with daily workouts or by working the same muscles for more than one day in a row, you are not allowing your muscles to build. In fact, you are sabotaging your own muscle building efforts.
Try this routine for effective muscle building:
* Exercise only three days per week.
* Assign each part of the body one day (shoulders, triceps, and shoulders on day one, back and biceps on day two, and legs on day three).
* Rest in between.
* Start over again!
Working out according to a schedule like this can help you build muscle more effectively and keep your body injury-free.
When you add supersets, compound moves, and rest into your workout, you will be able to build muscle fast. These are the most effective means of increasing your workouts’ potency.
