3. Not eating the right food
Most people who start out with a muscle building goal think that they need to only eat protein to rack up muscles. While it’s true that proteins are important, since they are made up of amino acids which are the building blocks of life, neglecting carbohydrates and fat is not recommended. Carbohydrates provide energy to the body that is required to help bulk up muscle mass, while fats are responsible for testosterone and other growth-related hormones.
So, despite putting your best efforts in at the gym, if you are not getting the desired results, consider adding 500 calories to your diet, and if you still don’t see much growth after a couple of weeks, add another 500 calories.
