Rest and recovery

Rest and recover is usually overlooked in bodybuilding, which is also one of the primary requirements of building muscle fast. With no rest and recover, there is no chance for the muscle to grow. Intense training is a stimulus which breaks down the body after which it requires nutrients and recovery period. At least 2 days a week should be rest day.

Here is a video illustrating some helpful exercises to build your muscle fast:

Part 2: Build Muscle Fast—Adjust Your Diet

To build muscle fast you need to eat well, almost eat like a horse. The food is required for energy and the recovery from the workouts. Given below are the diet requirements for building muscle:
1

Whole foods: It is important to eliminate processed and junk food like soda, frozen items, breads, pizza, etc. Incorporate natural, unprocessed foods like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, steaks, chicken breasts, eggs, etc. It is important to have fiber in the diet, which gets lost during processing.

2

Protein: Muscle is made of proteins and due to the increased wear and tear, it is important to get as much as 200 grams of protein a day. Yet, it is not necessary to get it from whey protein supplements. Ensure that each meal has a good source of protein. The calculation should be 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. If you weight 200 lb, the intake would then be 200 grams. You can have eggs for breakfast, meat or poultry for meals and cottage cheese for snacking.

3

Hydration: It is very important to remain hydrated when working out. A lot of body fluid is lost through sweat. The muscles require water to recover from the work out. A gallon of water per day is recommended. When you start getting dehydrated, you will start having headaches, which are the first sign. Unless you drink the entire gallon in 30 minutes, you don't have to worry about water intoxication.

    awesome share, thanks for posting this, allow me to say that It really is important to push your muscles to their max otherwise your progress is going to be really slow, If you don't give your body a reason to grow then it won't! it's simple always make sure you take yourself to failure, keep your workouts short but intense, and stay consistent guys! if you don't keep track of what you do and don't get a good routine going, then your not going to get very far, I know a lot of guys have trouble getting a good program going, I follow a very strict routine I found over at http://aestheticreview.com and I've made crazy gains in just a couple months, it was like a night and day difference to what I was doing before, anyways good luck guys and as long as you don't give up you will be the biggest guy on the block!

    Thanks for sharing!I'd like to add the importance of recovery & SLEEP after you lift heavy & fill up your tank with the right nutrition. If you're consistently getting under say, 6 hours of good sleep everyday, you're not gonna be making much progress either. Other authorities would say no more than 8 hours of good sleep. Between 6 & 7 hours works best for me. So really it should be : Train & lift hard & work up to realistic progressions;Eat enough of the right stuff;Sleep well;Keep your discipline;Rinse & repeat.
