A Few key words of advice I will provide to all my readers on how I built up quickly. Make sure you increase your food intake. If you are a light eater I understand this can be difficult at first. But food is the essential ingredient to building muscle. I eat a lot of protein, vegetables and also mix in carbs. The trick is to make sure your workouts are intense. I push myself for close to one hour in each session, with five sessions being performed per week.
These sessions include:
- 10-15 Minute Walk / Very light run.
- 45 Minutes of weights. All kind of weights. One day I will focus on chest and shoulders. The next day arms. The next day more focus on legs and abs. Essentially I try to do chest and arms twice a week.
- It is also important to understand your body. Several times my muscles have felt close to tearing. But what I do is essentially have a rest day as soon as my muscles feel tight. Or I might skip upper body for two days and just focus on legs and walking/running.
