What’s the Best Routine to Build More Muscle for Summer?

Want to beef up before summer gets here? The FizzUp trainer has just what you need to reach your goal. With an effective workout routine, you can evenly build your body’s muscles. Take notes, because we’ve got all the details you can’t miss!

WHAT’S THE RIGHT WORKOUT SCHEDULE TO BUILD MORE MUSCLE?

If you want to gain muscle mass, there are a few mistakes you need to avoid making. The first is not following your FizzUp workout schedule. The trainer includes rest days in your workout schedule to promote muscle recovery after exercise. Without this crucial phase, there’s no way you’ll effectively develop your body’s muscles. You might exhaust your body, making it unable to give you the results you expect. It’s also important that you choose the right FizzUp goal.

With the “Build Muscle” goal, you’ll gain muscle mass using bodyweight exercises. They enable you to continuously develop your muscles evenly because they work several muscle groups synergistically during an exercise. You’ll get a chiseled and dry physique that you’ll sculpt as you like with the Focus programs*. These are mini-workouts that only last five minutes and enable you to target a specific area of your body that you want to work the most. Pecs, arms, back, thighs, glutes or abs, no part of your body is left behind!

FizzUp has recently released the “Build Muscle with Equipment”* to get you faster results if you’re in a hurry. When you work out with dumbbells, you can build a muscular physique in minimum of time. It involves more muscular resistance while effectively building your strength. The real advantage of a program like this is that strength training beginners can quickly get results by using equipment, whereas they would have had to gain much more workout expertise to get similar results using just their body weight.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EAT TO BUILD MORE MUSCLE?

Muscle is one of the organs in the human body that needs constant energy in order to function. Your heart is a muscle, for example. Your muscles are constantly being worked, especially during physical exertion. Knowing that your goal is to build muscle, you should get into new eating habits.

First, eat carbohydrates, which are your body’s primary source of energy. After you ingest them, carbohydrates are stored as glycogen in your muscles and are then used by the muscle as soon as it’s needed. You can find them in pasta, rice or grains like oats.

Protein is another important macronutrient for your muscles. If you want to gain muscle mass, your protein intake should be between 1.8 and 2 g of protein per kg of your body weight per day. For example, to reach this amount, it’s best to eat protein at breakfast with eggs or the rolled oat bowl cake from the FizzUp Nutrition Guide! You can find large amounts of protein in meat, fish and eggs, as well as dairy products and dried vegetables.

Feel free to switch up your sources between animal protein and plant-based protein. For instance, you can try the turkey and zucchini bake from the FizzUp Nutrition Guide for lunch and make the chickpea salad with a side of FizzUp nuggets for dinner.

Besides your three meals a day, you can have two snacks (one in the morning and one in the late afternoon, depending on the time you work out) to boost your protein intake and reach your goal. Have some nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts, or some yogurt topped with a bit of granola.

Build more muscle thanks to these tips from the FizzUp trainer, who gives you personalized fitness guidance. Start your new workout program to get a massive, muscular body this summer.
