Building muscle is not an allusive and unattainable thing. The biggest reason why some find it hard to build muscle is two-fold. Two of the most common mistakes I see is that someone quits after only a couple weeks because they don’t see much change. And second there is no change in diet.
First off, consistency is key in the gym. You are not going to get the results you want in a couple weeks. Depending on where you are starting it may take a year, two or three. But rather than looking at this as an eternity, think of it this way. If you don’t start, a year from now you will still be wishing you did. It is a process, and change does not happen overnight. Stick with it. Routine should be your best friend. If you are lifting weights four days a week for a year and eating right then you are going to see results
For food, you have to change your diet and eat for a healthy strong body. Many of us already know a lot of the foods we shouldn’t eat. We have to replace our unhealthy foods with healthy foods. And once again we have to stay consistent with our diet changes.
As I said earlier this is a process. I’ve been working out for over seven years now, and I am still working towards goals and learning new things. So don’t think about the time, just know that you can make a decision today to start fresh. You’ve got this.
