If you are thin and you want to gain more muscle mass, three important steps will help you to play in more muscle mass and look better in the process. Let's find out how you can gain more muscle and look better by following three simple steps.

Step 1- find your daily calorie sweet spot for muscle gain

You are probably confused about what to do, what to eat, went to be and how much to eat because there is so much information available on diets that are contradictory to each other and so they make it very difficult to understand what you need to do to gain muscle the single most important factor in your entire nutrition plan is that you need to manage your overall net energy balance. It means the number of calories you consume every day versus the number of calories you burn.

If you want to gain more muscle, you will need to create a calorie surplus and it means you will need to consume more calories than your body uses. When you do that, you will have additional energy which can be used for building new muscle tissue. You will need high-quality protein, carbohydrates, and fats in a well-balanced ratio. However, you will need to remember that your body can only make use of a limited number of extra calories every day for building new muscle.

Step 2-focus on training for strength, not the size


When you want to build muscle, then why should you focus more on strength and not size? Let's find out what happens when you go to the gym and try to build more muscle. When you go to the gym and train with weights, you are breaking down your muscle fiber and creating small micro tears within the tissue. That forces your muscles to respond by going back larger and stronger when you rest. So if you want to continuously build your muscle mass and keep it increasing every week, you will need to steadily increase the stress by gradually adding more weight to your exercises over time. If you are a beginner, building up a solid strength foundation using compound lifts is the most powerful thing you can do, which will transform your body quickly. It will help you to get a training log book and begin writing down your workouts every time you go to the gym.

Step 3-stop using the wrong supplements

If you want to get the maximum help from supplementation in improving the overall effectiveness and convenience of your muscle building program, you will need to know the right way of using the right supplements. You should be careful because most of the products, that have created the multi-billion dollar a year industry of supplements, are a complete and total scam. If you are over-dependent on supplements, it'll take your focus off the things that are most important in your program, which proper training and nutrition. You need to take just a select few supplements which may provide you with an extra edge in and out of the gym. However, such selection should be research backed so as to avoid any harm to your health and to your bank account.
