Top 8 Reasons Why You Are Not Building Muscle Tissue
Struggling building muscle tissue..? Here are the top 8 reasons why you are not able to build muscle tissues to the fullest of you potential.
Hey, everyone, I hope you are crushing your fitness goals and taking charge of your health and wealth.
Today’s article is made by me because many people are getting confused by reading all the fitness magazines and checking big body builders about building muscle.
Building muscle is no rocket science however due to a load of information throughout the internet many people miss on the basic principles to build muscle or lose fat.
They try every exercise to build muscle and to say the truth the people are not persistent.
They want quick results so they jump programs to programs that they continue only for 2 -3 weeks.
This is the biggest problem that’s called the “dabblers mentality”.
So I suggest you stick to the principles and keep faith in the program as well as yourself.
So here are 9 reasons why you are not building muscle tissue:
You have low testosterone levels:
Most people sit on their butt whole day, they smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and eat like shit.
This has a great impact on your hormones and they get messed up if you have the same daily routine.
If you don’t provide enough nutrients to your body and don’t provide any resistance to your body then it will start reducing the amount of testosterone that it produces.
Because the hormone that is responsible for building muscle or losing fat is testosterone.
You don’t eat calories according to your TDEE:
Most people on the internet say that you can build muscle or lose fat without counting any calories.
This is not true. To tell you the truth the people that tell you that they don’t count calories and are able to build muscle is they have done that in the beginning and have mastered that technique.
They now know their body very well and if they want to reduce fat they now know how much and what type of food they need to eat in order to do so.
They can build almost 3 -4 pounds of muscle in 1 month very easily as they know their body.
So if you want to build muscle efficiently then you better firstly know your TDEE and start eating 10-12% above your TDEE to see lean gains.
You are stressed about something:
I know that you need to do your work to earn a living.
However, if you stay stressed and feel anxiety your cortisol levels will increase day by day.
EEven if you have a work or not you will always be stressed so I say its better to take a positive approach to life and enjoy the process and be relaxed.
This will help you to reduce your cortisol levels and as you know cortisol is the catabolic hormone which is responsible for breaking down your muscles.
You might not be sleeping deeply:
Well, deep sleep is very important for anyone.
You feel fresh, confident, energetic when you have a great sleep.
However, or your knowledge studies have shown that your testosterone peaks when you are at the deepest level of sleep.
See the people that sleep less their physique is very bad, their decision-making capabilities get impaired, they don’t feel confident and the bad list continues.
So you need to start sleeping better . this can be done just as simply as by reading a book before bedtime.
Here don’t watch TV to fall asleep as it has a harsh reception to your mind and you will not be able to have a better sleep.
Not eating enough protein:
Well, this is a bit of a controversial topic however many people under eat the minimum amount that is actually needed to even preserve muscle tissue.
People think that eating protein powder is cheating to build a physique or taking supplements is said to be cheating which is not as supplements are only to supplement your growth of your body and you cannot replace a meal with supplements.
However, vegeterians face a major problem to provide daily protein need for their body.
Protein helps you repair your muscles as well as bones and also helps you stay focused throughout the day.
So, in conclusion, eat at a minimum of 0.8 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight to efficiently build muscle.
If you want to have in-depth information on how much protein do you need to build muscle or to lose fat then you need to read my previous article.
Not following proper weight training:
As I told you earlier that people change their training programs very frequently they don’t see any results.
This failure is because if you want to build true muscle you will not be able to build it with taking bodybuilding approach.
You firstly need to focus on strength training and as you become intermediate you then can use bodybuilding training principles to bring up the lagging muscle groups.
So focus on doing heavy weights and low reps of compound weightlifting movements such as squats, deadlifts bench press and much more.
Not focusing on progressive overloading:
Well, I have seen 90 % of people that go to the gym lift the same weights weeks after weeks and complain why they are not building any muscle tissue.
Your body needs to be put under stress if it wants to grow.
Putting the same amount of stress on the body will not produce different results.
You need to keep adding weight to the bar to continuously cause a micro tear to your muscle tissue and to repair your muscle tissue requires more protein so that your muscles will grow.
If you are a new lifter then you can gain at least 20 pounds of muscle in your first year of weight lifting.
So focus on adding as much weight as you can to the bar and perform the exercises with the correct form to build muscle tissue easily.
Fat is considered as an enemy to people as people think if they eat fat then they will get fat.
To make you understand fat is the sole producer of testosterone which is the most important hormone with help of which you can build your muscle tissue easily and lose fat too.
So eat foods rich in omega 3 and start cooking with olive oil instead of hydrogenated oils full of omega 3.
I hope now you are focused on building muscle the easy way.
