Muscle Gain | Muscle Mass
Muscle gain, bodybuilding is the process of maximizing muscle hypertrophy through different combination but the three main strategies to maximize muscle hypertrophy are strength training through weights or elastic/hydraulic resistance, specialized nutrition, incorporating extra protein and supplements where necessary and adequate rest, including sleep and recuperation between workouts. Water is very important during and after a workout to prevent dehydration.
But all this could be as hard as trying to lose weight.
The easiest period to gain muscle is during puberty, after that, gaining muscle becomes progressively harder as we age due to the fact that hormonal production starts declining between the ages of 25 and 30.
Did you know:
Weight training causes micro-tears to the muscles being trained; this is generally known as micro-trauma.
These micro-tears in the muscle contribute to the soreness felt after exercise, called delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
It is the repair to these micro-trauma that result in muscle growth. Normally, this soreness becomes most apparent a day or two after a workout.
However, as muscles become adapted to the exercises, soreness tends to decrease.
