How to Grow Muscle and Burn More Fat

In order to achieve a particular fitness goal, it benefits one to know what exercise, and effort of intensity will complement and optimize the result. Research shows us, muscle is stimulated to grow when the fast twitch muscle fibers within our chest, back, arms, legs, etc., are contracted at a fast rate during anaerobic exercise activities. To grow muscle optimally also requires there is enough glucose and stored muscle glycogen fuel available to train intensely. In contrast to burning body fat, activation of the slow twitch muscle fibers requires less effort during long duration aerobic exercise activities. To burn fat optimally, slow twitch muscle fiber requires a glucose and mostly fat fuel source to endure long endurance exercise activity. Continue reading

Relative Fitness Programming Sustains Active Lifestyles

How does one determine and build a relative fitness program? All too often relative fitness programming is disregarded where some jump on others band wagons in hopes of receiving the same results. It is often thought if one follows another’s exercise routine, they’ll receive the same fitness benefits. Sometimes this strategy works, but all too often it fails because it’s relative to another’s unique mind, body and spirit and environment(s) in which they live. For example, when we fail too often to losing weight because of poor fitness planning, the end result is more weight gain and risk to health. Continue reading

Change Exercise & Nutrient Strategies – Grow More Muscle, Part 2

Muscle growth is dependent upon protein synthesis an adequate supply of amino acids is necessary to grow muscle and keep it in a good state of repair. If you do not eat seafood or animal-based foods, your diet is likely lacking in essential amino acids. Until the weakest muscles are worked for example by varying the angles of the muscle group articulations, it will be harder to optimize symmetrical muscle development and overall strength. Symmetrical muscle and strength is also about how you train and set fitness goals. Also if your intent on using any type of steroid or growth hormone supplement, do yourself a favor, first read the article link… Continue reading

Muscle Growth Using Task Specific Training is Powerful Knowledge

Exercise performed repeatedly without the right workout modulation, “work and recovery time” does not allow the muscle to “self correct” its muscle memory course to greater gains when work effort to body is not commanded correctly by the brain. Simply stated, if you continue to apply the 4-15 repetition rule using essentially the same poundage, per repetitive set each day, your muscle can not be stimulated in a way to further activate muscle growth, strength and/or make significant endurance gains for lack of memory to do so. The physical and mental body must be connected to stimulate and yield the physical results you seek. Continue reading
