  • Frequently Asked Questions About Muscle Building


    Sometimes, you just need quick answers without long boring explanations. Some questions don’t even need long boring scientific answers, it just confuses people more. So I’m going to answer the most commonly asked questions regarding muscle building with quick, informative answers. Let’s go.

    How many times do I need to workout?
    This will vary for everyone but a good starting point is 3-4 times a week, alternating body parts. Make sure to leave at least 24-48 hours of rest between body parts. There’s no need to workout 6-7 times a week if you are a beginner. Start with 3 days a week, eat well and rest.

    What is the best rep scheme for muscle building?
    None. Everyone’s body is different. It's more important to add enough volume to your workouts (by a combination of weight, sets and reps) than counting reps. Pick a weight that allows you to do 12 reps with the last rep being almost impossible. Then do 4 sets of 8 reps with that weight. Use this as a starting point and see how your body reacts. Make sure to rest for at least 45 seconds between sets.

    How much should I eat to build muscle?
    Start by eating 250 calories daily over your maintenance level (the amount of calories you need to maintain your current weight and not gain or lose any).
    If you still don’t gain any weight over the next two weeks, add another 250 per day, so on and so forth.

    Does traditional bulking and cutting work?
    It does, but only for certain individuals. For most of us, bulking and cutting just means an endless cycle of eating crap, gaining way too much fat and then destroying all of your hard-earned muscle trying to lose that extra fat. You don’t need to pile on 1000s of calories per day to gain muscle, 250-500 calories over maintenance will be more than enough for most people. This way, it's easier to shed the little extra fat when you need to pop those abs out.

    What is the best supplement for building muscle?
    Food. Real food. I know that’s not a supplement so here you go. Creatine. Creatine is the only supplement that has been proven by science. It has been thoroughly studied and tested and the only one that has been proven to work. If you get no stomach issues, stick to creatine monohydrate, its cheap and it works (used in most studies).

    Should I take steroids/pro-hormones/SARMs?
    If you’re asking this question, I’m gonna say, no. You do not need to take any anabolic to build muscle. Only after you have reached your genetic potential and are not a tested athlete would I advise the use of these substances. Even then, you should always make sure you have done plenty of research and spoken to a number of different people about it. If you are under 21, don’t even think about touching these. You WILL mess yourself up.

    Do I HAVE to workout my legs?
    Yes. Always yes. Unless you have a medical reason not to. Don’t be a chicken.
