This article is going to cover a few key points that seriously need to be considered if your objective is to gain good quality muscle as fast as possible naturally. This first point is that you should be keeping whichever program you are doing to no more than 1 hour of duration. Be sure that you are focusing on keeping the intensity high rather than making the workout drag on.
There have been countless studies on how nasty things happen in your hormonal state after training hard for more than an hour. Plus, when trying to gain weight, we want to work out harder rather than longer.
Your body is pre-programmed with your genetic disposition. If you have you have a very fast metabolism that digests and burns calories quickly. So even though you might eat 3 meals a day, and they may be high calorie meals, your body is going to burn through these very quickly. Then you need to focus on having 5-6 meals a day spaced 2-3 hours apart so that your body is constantly being provided with something to metabolize and build muscle.
You should stop spending your hard earned money on supplements except protein powders. It is not going to make or break your gains in the gym. The majority of supplements being marketed to hard-gainers looking to gain weight are focused on increasing water weight instead of muscle which after you come off the supplement, your weight will drop again.
The secret to gaining muscle is all about training correctly and eating correctly but eating correctly means educating yourself about calories, how to count them and how to use them. If you can consume more calories than you work-out with then you will help to put on muscle even though you may pick up fat as well you will definitely pick up muscle fast.
If you want to gain weight, you're better off focusing on progressing in either the number of reps or an increase in weight lifted within your main program. Just like overeating, this too will be tough and require you to push yourself to the limits. Muscle grows when it gets stronger and this is something that has been conclusively proven many times.
You should get into the habit of changing the rep range every 3-4 weeks to avoid plateaus. Changing the rep range will make your body adapt to the new stress causing you to gain weight in the form of muscle. This is a much better tactic than adding more sets and more work in your routine. There are other ways that you can change your rep range by doing things like pyramids, forced reps, negatives etc.
