When you’re training, your body needs to create the right anabolic balance with the help of Testogen which will allow you to build muscle and to be able to get you to the right muscle mass you need to eat healthier than you are now. As well as intensive training sessions.

To help get these building blocks in place you need to understand and follow the formula that has been proven to help enhance the anabolic principle.

1) Protein as most know is the basic raw material needed to build up muscles. Protein is the supplier of Amino acids that the body used to repair the body and help build muscles after an intensive workout. The recommended aim is 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight each day, the best way is through food, like beef, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, and of course whey. It is advised that you try and have these over at least 6 meals to get the optimum benefit and to avoid overloading your liver.

2) Carbohydrates are also needed to help energize the muscle-building process. Carbs help stimulate the release of insulin which helps push the amino acids into your muscle cells to help recover and repair from your workout. As some are aware, cabs are used by the body as an energy source, if you take in too little carbs the body will steal the protein that is needed to repair and build the muscle mass you are after. My advice is to try and consume 1.5 to 2 grams of carbs per pound of body weight each day, again the best way is through food, like potatoes, pasta, rice, vegetables, and whole wheat bread.

3) Boost your calorie intake, unless your reducing body fat, you need a positive calorie balance if you want to build your muscles. One of the ways to do this is by having an intake that is 10% higher than your energy expenditure for your daily maintenance; this consists of 50% carbs, 40% proteins, and 10% fat. Follow this formula and you will see a difference.

4) You need rest, sleep allows the body to optimize your body’s levels of growth hormone and testosterone levels, you also need to schedule time off from training and while your training, your muscles won’t grow without that rest time, so make sure you have it built into your regime.

5) Supplements are good support for your training as it helps towards your nutrition intake, some people add whey protein, creatine and l-glutamine shakes to their diet to help get that daily intake that is needed. Some people find it easier as a shake.

6) Do not overdo your aerobic exercise as this will burn the extra calories you need to help with your muscle-building regime as you need them to bulk up, you want to increase not decrease.

7) Water is also a big part of your training, as you know, we humans are 70% water, without topping your water levels up, you will dehydrate and it will affect your muscle volume and it helps growth. I have always advised drinking 3 liters or more a day as you are training, you sweat more, so you lose more.
