Muscle Hypertrophy Explained

Muscle growth is a fascinating subject and chances are you want some yourself.

You probably know that to get your body to build new muscle tissue a few things need to happen.

Most importantly you need to create a stimulus for example through weight training and you also need to provide your body with the right building blocks to create new tissue like calories and enough protein.

But what exactly happens in your body when you have these things covered.

We know from studies that skeletal muscle tissue is the most adaptable tissue in the human body.

And even though we still haven’t figured out every last aspect of muscle growth it is a well researched topic that can help you improve your fitness routine.

So to help you understand the whole process we have to start with the basics.

Your muscles don’t actually grow during the workout.

What Should You Train On Your First Day At The Gym?

If you have just signed up for a gym membership but never actually trained in one you might be a little nervous about your first day there.

You’re probably wondering what all these machines and exercises are actually for and whether you really need them.

And there is all the gym lingo too that you might not be familiar with.

Like reps, sets, pull ups or pull downs.

The Perfect Pre Workout Meal

Once you know you’re getting all of your total macros right for the day.

Both your pre and post workout meal are the most important meals of the day.

And not your breakfast like many people believe.

Let’s first talk about pre workout nutrition.

Its main function is to fuel the workout itself and maximize your performance throughout.

Sounds simple right.

Unfortunately the fitness world has really overall complicated this and many gurus will sell you super specific recommendations or products that really don’t make a difference.

Let’s now cut through all of this nonsense and figure out exactly what you should be eating before your workout.

Like I said before this meal is meant to fuel your workout.
