5 Tips for building Chest muscles fast

Large muscular chest with good definition and mass looks very impressive. Many people who wants to get muscular body, strive for muscular chest. Here are some of the tips to achieve muscular chest in easy ways.

1) Bench Press: Bench press is the king of chest exercises. With some variations we can make it as incline bench press or decline bench press for stimulating upper or lower chest muscles. Bench press gives good results when it combines with various other chest exercises such as dumbbell flyes or dips or with cross over. Its all provides stimulation on different muscles of chest.

2) Grip: Grip variance is important in breaking Plataea. Keep changing the grip in chest press, flyes and when doing exercises with barbell and dumbbells. For example, wide grips gives more stress on chest muscles while narrow grip gives lessser stress on chest but it increase stress on triceps and shoulder muscles.

3) Rest: Allow your chest muscles to rest before you start the next workout. IT gives time to grow muscles and get prepared for the next level workout. 4-5 reps with heavy weights makes a good one set. Now about 3 sets for such weights gives enough exercise for chest. Do not workout everyday. Give about two days off to your body for repairing muscle tissues.

4) Swimming: Did you see any swimmer with bad looking body or chest? All swimmers have a nice ripped fat free body and they have good defined chest. Swimming is a good whole body exercise and it stimulates chest muscles a lot. It helps giving a full body workout and gives a good defined body shape.

5) Nutrition: Your body needs to keep up with the nutrition such as carbohydrates and protein. It is very important to fuel up your body with carbs and protein filled meals 5 times a day. Make sure that in each meal you have correct amount of nutrition that is 50% carbohydrates, 30% protein and enough amount of fat depending upon your workout schedule. 

Leg's muscle anatomy

Any workout cant be complete till you give sufficient time for your large leg muscles. It usually knows as "quads". Quadriceps are the front muscle of leg. This muscle gives outer shapes of the front side of legs. Other muscles are vastus meadialis that is inner thigh and vestas lateralis that is outer thigh.

Fastest way to Build Masculine Bigger Chest

Wants bigger chest in easy ways?
Forget all other exercises. Follow on the main exercises first to stimulate your chest muscles and pecs.

Push ups: 
Push ups often gets neglected when it comes to compound exercises. Push ups is one of the best exercise for chest after bench press. Actually, bench press is one type of push ups. Push ups stimulates bigger portions of chest as well shoulder muscles, triceps and traps too. In the beginning try to go slow on it but with time it will be easy.

Bench Press: 
Buckle up. Here comes one of the biggest exercise for the body. It is the most popular chest building exercise. The best form of bench press is to lower the bar till it is about 1 inch away from your chest. Bench Press also builds your shoulders and triceps. It is good to go with higher weight but in the limit that you can handle.

Incline bench press: 
It is a different form of bench press for upper chest muscles. It stimulates upper chest and upper pectorals.

Decline bench press: 
It is again a different form of bench press to help build lower chest muscles. Many people ignore this exercise  but to get a full chest workout it is very important.

Dumbbell fly: 
Dumbbell fly do not work as bench press to make pecs bigger but it helps to shape up pecs in great way.

10 tips for adding a pound of muscle each week

Here's your fix: Follow these 10 principles to pack on as 
much as a pound of muscle each week.

1. Maximize muscle building. The more protein your body stores—in a process called protein synthesisthe larger your muscles grow. But your body is constantly draining its protein reserves for other usesmaking hormones, for instance. The result is less protein available for muscle building. To counteract that, you need to "build and store new proteins faster than your body breaks down old proteins," says Michael Houston, Ph.D., a professor of nutrition at Virginia Tech University.

2. Eat meat. Shoot for about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, which is roughly the maximum amount your body can use in a day, according to a landmark study in the Journal of Applied Physiology. (For example, a 160-pound man should consume 160 grams of protein a daythe amount he'd get from an 8-ounce chicken breast, 1 cup of cottage cheese, a roast-beef sandwich, two eggs, a glass of milk, and 2 ounces of peanuts.) Split the rest of your daily calories equally between carbohydrates and fats.

3. Eat more. In addition to adequate protein, you need more calories. Use the following formula to calculate the number you need to take in daily to gain 1 pound a week. (Give yourself 2 weeks for results to show up on the bathroom scale. If you haven't gained by then, increase your calories by 500 a day.)

A. Your weight in pounds: _____
B. Multiply A by 12 to get your basic calorie needs: _____
C. Multiply B by 1.6 to estimate your resting metabolic rate (calorie burn without factoring in exercise): _____
D. Strength training: Multiply the number of minutes you lift weights per week by 5: _____
E. Aerobic training: Multiply the number of minutes per week that you run, cycle, and play sports by 8: _____
F. Add D and E, and divide by 7: _____
G. Add C and F to get your daily calorie needs: _____
H. Add 500 to G: _____. This is your estimated daily calorie needs to gain 1 pound a week.

4. Work your biggest muscles. If you're a beginner, just about any workout will be intense enough to increase protein synthesis. But if you've been lifting for a while, you'll build the most muscle quickest if you focus on the large muscle groups, like the chest, back, and legs. Add squats, deadlifts, pullups, bent-over rows, bench presses, dips, and military presses to your workout. Do two or three sets of eight to 12 repetitions, with about 60 seconds' rest between sets.

5. Lift every other day. Do a full-body workout followed by a day of rest. Studies show that a challenging weight workout increases protein synthesis for up to 48 hours immediately after your exercise session. "Your muscles grow when you're resting, not when you're working out," says Michael Mejia, C.S.C.S., Men's Health exercise advisor and a former skinny guy who packed on 40 pounds of muscle using this very program.

6. Down the carbs after your workout. Research shows that you'll rebuild muscle faster on your rest days if you feed your body carbohydrates. "Post-workout meals with carbs increase your insulin levels," which, in turn, slows the rate of protein breakdown, says Kalman. Have a banana, a sports drink, a peanut-butter sandwich.

7. Eat something every 3 hours. "If you don't eat often enough, you can limit the rate at which your body builds new proteins," says Houston. Take the number of calories you need in a day and divide by six. That's roughly the number you should eat at each meal. Make sure you consume some proteinaround 20 gramsevery 3 hours.

8. Make one snack ice cream. Have a bowl of ice cream (any kind) 2 hours after your workout. According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition , this snack triggers a surge of insulin better than most foods do. And that'll put a damper on post-workout protein breakdown.'

9. Have some milk before bed. Eat a combination of carbohydrates and protein 30 minutes before you go to bed.
