Strategies to gain muscle and weight
As with most goals or strategies, it’s important to bear in mind that ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. Research has shown that defining clear, achievable goals that can be measured over time, should reward you with success and this clearly aligns with strategies to gain muscle and weight.
How many times have we followed that new fad diet or joined the latest fancy gym in order to lose weight only to fall off the horse after a few weeks or months? The same applies to building or gaining muscle and weight. Making lifestyle changes, from what and how you eat to the type of exercise you do can reap rewards over time and that’s thought to be the best way to gain muscle and weight and keep it on effectively.
To gain muscle and weight then we need to increase calorie intake over and above our energy expenditure but it’s also important to make your food choices as nutrient rich as possible and build in appropriate exercise like resistance or weight training. Also, you may want to consider supplements like a lactose free meal replacement and a natural or whey protein to facilitate your effective muscle and weight gain strategy or programme.
If you are considering commencing a muscle and weight gain program but you have underlying health conditions or concerns then it’s always advisable to consult your doctor before-hand.
