Maximise Muscle Gains Starting Today

Your 4-Step Nutritional Gainz Plan

RATE:  
 

Nutrition is imperative to maximise muscle growth during your muscle building quest. This article will outline how to get all the energy and nutrients you require for some major gains in four fundamental rules!

RULE 1: EVENLY DISTRIBUTE YOUR PROTEIN INTAKE THROUGHOUT THE DAY

Each day you workout, aim to consume at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight and pay special attention to how you distribute your daily protein intake throughout the day.

To maximize the muscle growth and repair response from protein, you have to consume a minimum amount every few hours which usually translates to 25-35 grams of high-quality protein every few hours.

Best sources of protein include;

Whey - Make sure it's high quality and LA Whey is ideal for this

  • · Eggs
  • · Fish
  • · Beef
  • · Soy
  • · Chicken
  • · Cheese
  • · Milk
  • · Nuts

Make sure that as often as possible, these 25-35 grams of protein per meal come from complete, high-quality proteins that contain all of the essential amino acids. Meat, eggs, dairy, soy, and even quinoa all provide your body with the essential protein it needs to optimise muscle growth and recovery.

RULE 2: EAT EVERY FEW HOURS

To get all the calories you need, you can implement liquid calories in the form of shakes and powders. A good range to choose from are highlighted below which are induced with muscle building protein.

As well as consuming liquid protein it is also essential (if not more important) to get the majority of your nutrition from whole foods, because whole foods tend to give you the energy and nutrients needed to get though demanding workouts,

It is best to split your meals into six different meals a day. Eating six smaller meals (as oppose to 3 bigger meals) will help ensure you can comfortably take in the fuel you need. Eating three immense meals will just make you miserable and feeling bloated.

It is important to take into account that the muscle-growth response from eating protein lasts about three hours. By eating every few hours, you can provide your muscles with a nearly constant supply of the nutrients they need to grow. By maximising this muscle-growth response six times a day instead of only once or twice, you help put your body in an anabolic state and achieve maximum growth.

RULE 3: DRINK UP DURING YOUR WORKOUT

Your workouts should ideally combine high-volume and high-intensity techniques to break down every last muscle fibre in that day's target area. If you want to be able to get through the workout and still have the mental and physical fuel to tackle your workout at maximum output, you've got to be very well fuelled and LA Muscle Possessed will ensure just that.

Hard and gruelling workouts will drain your energy. If you haven't refuelled them throughout your workout, you'll feel that you will have less energy and fail to put in your hardest. Lack of adequate fuel will compromise your intensity, reduce your total volume, and deprive you of optimum muscle growth.

By sipping on a fast-digesting liquid like Possessed that is packed with energy during your workout, you can provide your body with a readily available fuel supply that spares muscle glycogen and helps increase energy output. This will help you avoid that empty-tank feeling so you can finish your workout with almost the same intensity you started with. Even more, sipping on energy packed during your workout will enhance focus and reduce muscle breakdown to improve recovery. Simply mix 1 scoop (around 15ml) with water and watch your energy levels ignite.

RULE 4: EAT A HIGH-PROTEIN BEDTIME MEAL

When you finish your dinner and don't eat again until breakfast, you may go nearly 12 hours (or more) without food. All of these hours without fuel mean you'll spend significant time in a catabolic state, during which your body will break down more protein than it's building. This is detrimental to muscle growth and needs to be avoided at all costs.

To reduce the time spent in a catabolic state, eat a protein-rich bedtime meal prior to sleep. A good bed time meal would be to have a lttle cottace cheese plus a scoop of LA Whey protein to help hit the 40g threshold and keep you in an anabolic state over night. If you want you can even add in a tablespoon of peanut butter if you are really looking to grow and add some mass.

In conclusion, if you want to make sure you're supporting muscle growth and recovery all the time, make sure you consume all the high-quality protein you need from the first meal of the day through the final one.
