Get Fit - Build Muscular Strength One Pound At A Time



Flabby muscles aren’t attractive on anyone. They also aren’t very useful. Muscular strength is a must. Did you have trouble lifting your share of heavy furniture the last time you helped a friend move? If so, you’ve been neglecting this part of your exercise routine. To build muscle and get nicely toned, you need to get serious about this aspect of your physical fitness.

Get Strong For The Future And For Right Now

Muscle tissue tends to waste away as you get older. Fortunately, this doesn’t actually have to happen. Building and maintaining muscle mass takes persistence. But it will pay off big when you can still pick up your great-grandkids on your 80th birthday. Strong muscles also help stabilize your joints - keeping you mobile for much longer.

Of course, resistance training can also give you a super figure while you are still young enough to really show it off. As you add muscle to your frame, the number of calories you burn even when you aren’t working out increases. Have you heard advertisements for “products” that will help you burn weight while you sleep? Building muscle mass actually delivers these results by increasing your metabolic rate - and it’s not some fishy diet hoax!

There Are Lots Of Ways To Build Muscle




Strength Workouts often involve weight lifting , but stretch bands or cable pulleys (think bowflex) are excellent modern options. You can even build muscle with old fashioned exercises like pushups and chin ups. Pushups are actually a great choice if you are a woman who wants to build muscular strength in your upper body. There isn’t the risk of dropping a barbell on your chest with this exercise and you don’t have to share sweaty equipment with anyone!

Free weights and weight machines are great for both men and women who want to bulk up. These make it easy to keep track of progress. However, it can be tempting to add too much weight at once. This may happen if you try to impress your buddies at the gym or if you think you aren’t progressing fast enough.

Slow and steady is the key to getting the results you want when it comes to increasing your muscular strength. You should be able to lift a weight and release it slowly to its resting position. If you have to drop it or let it slam back into the stack, you are taking on too much at once.
