To begin with, that the traditional three meals a day with the inevitable snacking in between gives somewhere in 2000-2500 calories. Almost no one “weak hearted” lover, sitting on such a diet is not able to build a decent mass. So, if you train exactly in line with my requirements, good sleep, live stress free and yet not growing, you do not have enough calories. That’s all.
In order for your muscle mass has gone into growth, you need to eat more. But before you take the start in this business, you need to understand the following three parameters diet.
So the first thing.
You must know your basic level of energy consumption (BU). Briefly explain what it is. It is about the amount of energy that is needed for your body to the heart beating, lungs breathing, worked as the liver and muscles, etc. The growth we are now and do not stutter – it’s completely different matter. So, you need to know exactly how many calories your body need to live (and not build muscle). In practice, this is what usually happens. Amateur reproduces itself in the hall, but eats very scant and incomplete. His muscles need energy for growth, but the organism is, of course, received no “calories from those that are needed for normal functioning of the internal organs. Here’s a simple secret to failure. So that the muscles grow, you need energy “surplus” in excess of the basic energy requirements. But how to define it, if you do not know your rig? In fact, there are formulas for calculating the ECU at the rate of weight gain, exercise, etc. However, these formulas give a very approximate result. Well, from my own experience I know that the issue of calories should be extremely accurate. In addition, each of us unique. Variability of the huge, so I advise you to leave the formula poboku and walk another way. Within three weeks should count on a conductor of the food calories (assuming that your weight remains constant). And then you can easily compute srednearifmetichesky indicator of daily energy requirements. This will be your ECU. I stress that it is yours, and not derived through a strange formula. I think, further logic steps you will understand. If you eat just enough calories, your weight remains stable. If more – is growing. Less – you lose weight.
You have to train properly. In this case it means – with a sufficient interval of rest between workouts. If the holiday you will not be enough, then begin to accumulate fatigue. Well, in a state of chronic fatigue a person loses weight, no matter how much eaten. So what happens, you are a fool. Begin to increase caloric intake, and impact as there was no, or not. And now, the specific steps. Add exactly 100 calories to your baseline energy level and 2-3 weeks stand in front of a mirror and examine yourself critically – not whether the increased amount of subcutaneous fat. If fat is not increased, add another 100 calories and there could look in the mirror almost every day. Continue to add the calories every week until they find a slight increase in Zhirkov. All stop! Bid up more calories is not necessary. From now on, the scales begin to show steady addition of your weight. Stay at this level of calories as much as will grow heavy. When the weight gain stops, you need to analyze your training, suddenly stopping the growth caused by overtraining? The more so for a period of weight gain you will become stronger and seriously increased workloads. If everything is in order, increase the daily caloric another 100-200 calories.
“Why is not the hurry? Again, for the reason that we are all different. Easy to say, eat up to 4000 calories a day and the muscles, like Dorian Yatsa, in your pocket. Someone’s stomach learns these most calories and, as they say, do not frown. Well, someone “picks” his digestion, and for one month, so much so that it will take care physicians. Someone’s body is able to convert the extra calories into muscle, but someone such a diet for a couple of months easily turn into a dimensionless overweight. In short, then extreme caution is needed, each of us has a genetic ceiling in the assimilation of calories. Hasty steps, and even contrary to nature, will not lead to anything good.
A gradual increase in calories will help your digestion to adjust to overwork the “extra” calories for him. In addition, you will know exactly how much food you can eat, do not get fat. The latter is especially important for an amateur. Traced the muscles and do not let these large volumes, look much more impressive than the bloated fat.
Efficiency of digestion is largely dependent on the nature of food. In principle, solid food is digested is worse than a liquid or semi-liquid. So that the more carefully you chew, the better. However, over the years of sedentary work all the muscle tissue, including stomach, lose their contractile ability. As a result, formally healthy stomach is working a lot worse. You should bear this in mind when you start to eat more. There is a reason to “assist” the stomach, taking food in a liquid or semi-liquid form – mashed, liquid, cereals, etc.
And yet. You must understand that to sit on high-calorie diet can be only during periods of intense training. Otherwise, the excess calories postponed under your skin. At the beginning of each training cycle should reduce some of the daily caloric content, because at this stage, the muscles do not grow, and therefore not in need of supplementary feeding. With increasing intensity of workouts daily calorie intake, it is understandable, it is necessary to increase.
Can I build muscle and get rid of fat?
The growth of muscle tissue in a scientific way is called anabolism. And “burning” of fat – is, on the contrary, the destruction of body tissues, in this case – the fat. And it is called catabolism. Both these states are complete opposites of each other. And in one organism are incompatible. This is the answer to the question. In other words, your body may be either in a state of anabolism or catabolism. Or do you lose weight, or dial muscle. No middle ground. True, exceptions are possible – with the help of Pharmacology.
In connection with this should give an explanation for beginners, amateurs, inscribed in the gym to lose weight. When you start to swing, it would indicate a transfer of the organism into a state of anabolism, ie, growth. This, in turn, means that growth will begin to anything that can grow. Will grow muscle, but at the same time will increase and the thickness of fat tissue. There’s no escape. So instead of losing weight you get even more fat.
In ancient times, bullies do not really bother the accumulation of body fat while building muscle. Like, when you eat to satiety, like it or not you start gorging. Important – is to start the process of muscle growth, and the fat, we then we will manage somehow.
Many “stars” of the 60’s in the offseason swelled to the size of the elephant, sometimes picking up to 50 pounds overweight. After that, they rushed to the other extreme – the transition from “obzhiralovki” on meat and water. And indeed rounded up a huge amount of fat. Clearly, this is costly to their health.
Today in bodybuilding on this other strategy. If you see that in the period set mass you have touched with increasing body fat, go for a few months to a program sgonke subcutaneous fat to the level of 12% (not more!). Then again, return to building muscle. But it is slightly cut daily calories to fat under the skin accumulates more slowly than in the past cycle. After earning a 15% fat, once again interrupt the cycle of “weight loss” and again surges fat to 10-12%.
With this approach, work on the “relief” does not entail the destruction of the muscles. In fact, get rid of 3% of excess body fat – it’s nothing that does not require any wear aerobic loads, no specific victims in terms of diet. From each new cycle “with a lot of” you’ll leave with tangible allowance (it will not destroy the aerobics). And yet, at 10-12% body fat you will look quite decent. Of course, not as a pro on the catwalk, but the “cubes” will look through the press quite clearly.
Initially, the maintenance of such impressive form (if you’re interested in it) will give you hard, but with each new cycle of experience will be more and more, so as to facilitate cycles. The case is over the fact that you’re going to do on the machine.
