Rest and Build Muscle

It's very easy to tell how hard someone is working out, I'll ask "How many times per week do you workout?" they respond, "Oh everyday for 2 hrs".  People confuse working out hard with working out long.  Big difference!  To build muscle fast you have to workout as hard as possible.  In doing this you can't workout often. 

Now that you've stimulated building muscle with your hard workout, you need rest and recovery.  It takes a minimum of 48hrs rest to not only recover but to build muscle from the previous workout.  Take 1 day off between weight training workouts and never workout with weights more than 3 days per week.

Hard Workouts + R and R + Good Nutrition = Building Muscle Fast

  1. True. What most people don't know is that muscle building happens during rest.
