The top 3 reasons most people don’t build more muscle’s


When you are building your muscle’s, it is easy to get frustrated. This is very hard work to build your muscles and time-consuming. And it takes patience, a lot of patience and dedication. Most of the people who want to build some muscles want a shortcut for faster results. There is no short cuts and on the long run, it is better to do the muscle building on the right way to peak performance. Here is 3 of the top reasons most people don’t build more muscle’s.

1. Train for hours on end just with weight lifting

Many think that how many hours you work with the weight lifts, how quickly you will build muscle. But this is not the truth. You can’t just build muscle with lifts, all the time. The best is not to exceed 45-minute a day. Spend the rest of the time on proper warm ups and cool down routine’s. Add the weight of the dumbbells often, but not too much weight at a time. Don’t do more than your body can handle. Ask for a gym instructor if you don’t know what to do or how to build more muscles. It is also important to get enough sleep if you are exercising every day.

2. The same exercises every day

You are probably doing more of the exercises that you love more than the other exercises. This is also a possibility why you don’t build more muscles. Your body is getting used to the same exercises and the muscles aren’t getting to exercise in other type of movements and angles. This is called the “ repeated-bout effect”. This is also easier to injure some muscles. Change the exercises and let the muscles exercise in different motions and angles, strengthen the muscles more.

3. You don’t eat enough food

This is one of the biggest mistakes people who want to build muscles are making. If you want to build your muscles, you must eat many foods. Not any food, but muscle foods. The best is to eat a lot of muscle food three times a day. And it is also recommended to drink a power shake after each meal. There are many muscle foods. This is just a few of them. Some of the muscle food is:

  • Nuts without sugar or salt
  • Eggs
  • Olive oil and olives
  • Low-fat yogurt
  • Salm

There are many reasons why you don’t build more muscle’s. If you want to build more muscles and you don’t know how, it is best to get the help of a professional gym instructor and nutritionist. This is something you can’t do on your own. They can tell you more about the right things to do and what not to do. And don’t give up. Building muscles are hard work and will not happen overnight. Eat right and be patients. Muscle building are not impossible, just extremely hard work.

Eating for Your Tummy


Whether it’s Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, or bloating, a lot of people have their fair share of gastrointestinal troubles. I’ve certainly had more than my fair share. GI problems aren’t always talked about because it’s embarrassing and personal and smelly. But, a lot of people are suffering just like you, and you shouldn’t suffer in silence! I’m going to review the latest food and supplements for GI health.

Probiotics– Probiotics are very popular and seem to be quite effective. Probiotics are live microorganisms that confer a benefit to the host (your GI tract). Probiotics have minimal side effects and many people do quite well with them and find that they can provide relief for bloating, gas, cramping, and mild to moderate IBS. They can be consumed in food (yogurt) or as a supplement.There are several different strains of the bacteria that you can buy, all seem to be moderately effective. When buying supplements make sure that the bottle is labeled USP. This means that the supplement has been regulated by the United States Pharmacopoeia.

Peppermint Oil– Studies support the use of peppermint oil for nausea, indigestion, and IBS. In clinical trials with peppermint oil it has found to be more effective than antispasmodic drugs and fiber. It is especially useful in diarrhea predominant IBS.

Melatonin – Melatonin is a well known natural sleep aid. Recently it has been studied in regards to IBS. Melatonin has been shown to reduce pain in IBS patients when taken for two weeks. This is a short time period and further trials are needed. The recommended dose is 3 mg/day taken at night. Since it is a sleep aid it is important to take it at night. Users did not report any sleep disturbances or drowsiness while taking the supplement. Here is a great article.

Fiber – Last but not least, we have our good friend fiber. Of course fiber is best for constipation and people who have IBS-C. The recommendation for fiber is 14 grams of fiber per 1000 calories consumed. Since most people consume about 2000 calories, that makes the recommendation 28 grams per day. The majority of Americans could use a little more fiber in their diets. When increasing your fiber be sure to add it in slowly and drink plenty of water!
Are there any supplements or functional foods, that you have questions about? Please let me know! I wish everyone happy, healthy tummies.
