Why Muscle Building Is Important For Everyone

Muscle Building

Upon hearing the phrase muscle building, most people will quickly visualize hugely muscular bodybuilders in gyms lifting extremely heavy weights. For this reason lots of people believe that lifting weights is something to do only when you want to become big and muscular. However, this is a misperception that people understandably have due to lack of knowledge about muscle building and it’s overall benefit on the human body.

Why You Won’t Look Like A Bodybuilder Easy From Lifting Weights

Building muscle requires hard work and effort. It’s not possible to build huge muscles simply by lifting weights you’re able to perform a few reps with. Significant muscle growth will occur only when you lift weights that feel very heavy in a progressive pattern and you have good diet to back it up. For example, if you’re able to only do 10 reps of squats with a 20-lb weight it’ll require you to train and progress until you’re able to lift about 200 lbs or more to see huge muscle growth that’ll make you look like a bodybuilder. Is this easy? I don’t think so.

Muscle Building Weight Training

Everyone should partake in some form of weight training to stimulate muscle growth (muscular hypertrophy). There are numerous health benefits that both men and women can gain from building muscle such as added strength and power, increase in bone strength, added energy, boost to the immune system, boost to the body’s metabolism and of course a more attractive appearance. The reason people need to work on building muscle is the body starts losing muscle when we reach the age of 25. In order to ensure that we don’t end up with too much of a low percentage of muscle mass too soon and as a result face the negative effects off this we should workout to build up some quality muscle. The earlier in life we start the better.

People that start building muscle before 25 will find that they’re able to put on muscle rapidly once they’re eating and training right. The reason for this is most people never gain their maximum amount of muscle mass that their body is suppose to have naturally. So weight training will help them build up that natural amount of muscle their body was missing.

Men are able to build a higher quantity of muscle than women because they have more testosterone than women. Remember, building muscle is all about working out hard and eating properly. You won’t look like a bodybuilder even if you put on a good amount of muscle. I’ll take years of really heavy weight lifting and commitment to reach that stage.

Calories In Vs Calories Out – The Simple Concept Of Losing Body Fat

Calories-In-Vs-Calories-Out

The simple concept of calories in vs calories out is explained below.

The concept of losing body fat is very simple to understand. Excess calories make you fat so to lose fat you simply have to burn more calories than you consume. This concept is so simple there are endless amount of ways to illustrate it.

I’ll use this one as an example. Think of your body like a water tank with a supply pipe running into the tank and a distribution pipe running out of the tank.

If the tank continues to get the same amount of water that is going out, the quantity of water in tank will remain the same. If more water is going into the tank than the amount that’s going out, it will get fuller.

If you want to reduce the quantity of water in the tank, then you have to reduce the water supply or increase the water distribution out of the tank so that more water is going out.

Of course calories and the body is very different to water and a tank, but the concept of changing quantity is the same. What goes into a place of storage versus what goes out determines the quantity of the storage item, device facility etc.
