Ready to hit those 2022 goals? If building muscle is one of your must-haves this year, we will give you a few tips on how to improve your muscle building strategy. As with any realistic project, it’s going to take time and effort but OGX is here to support you on your journey!
1. Add protein to your diet
This is the first and most obvious step of the process. Protein is the core of muscle building since it provides all the components the tissue needs to get stronger. Normally, an individual should get at least 0.72 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day to start building the foundation of healthy muscles.
You can get your protein from different sources: meat, dairy, chicken, fish… And OGX FENIX. Our shakes are a powerful mix of whey protein with vitamins, minerals, prebiotic fiber and Ganoderma lucidum. You can make it the base of your meal plan and start replacing two meals a day with it to give your body all it needs to feel and look great.
2. Add weight training to your routine
If you’re only into cardio, we got bad news for you: it doesn’t help to build muscle effectively. A combination of weights and repetitions build the foundation of a great routine to get more muscle, gain strength and improve your endurance.
Choose your exercises depending on the area of your body you want to build muscle in. Don’t just stick to isolated movements, but also create compound sets to work several muscles at the same time, leading to a more functional training and a more harmonious look in your body when you start seeing the results.
3. Get Some Rest
We understand, you can get obsessed with the results once you start seeing them, but overworking your muscles can lead to injuries, pain and muscle fatigue. To avoid this, combine your training sessions with rest days in which you let your muscles take a break (and your mind too). Avoiding burnout will not diminish your gains or will take away the results you’ve achieved.
4. Take care of your vitality
Muscle building isn’t only about getting stronger muscles, but also to achieve overall health and be able to show up every day to your workout. Adding natural supplements to your routine can help you support your body functions as you train. ORGANO’s Mycelium for example, can get you immune support to be able to wake up even in the darkest, rainiest of days. Our Grapeseed Oil Supplement can provide healthy fats and antioxidants to maintain good health.
Remember, it’s all about balance. Mixing high intensity activity, weights, protein and healthy supplements to your diet can help you create a good baseline to build muscle.
