Building Lean Muscle – The Right Way To Do It

2 min read

In order to build lean muscle, you need to do three things very well:

1. You need to eat right and get enough carbs and protein in your diet

2. You need to do some kind of cardio training

3. You need to do some kind of strength training

Having the right diet

Okay so first things first, you want to be getting in about 5-6 small meals a day, this is very important.

There is nothing but good that can come from this, trust me. Eating 3 large meals a day spikes your body’s sugar levels and also interferes with your metabolism.

On the other hand, eating 5-6 small meals a day will increase your nutrition oxidation levels, which just means at absorbing nutrients and burning fat.

Another very important thing is just how much you take in of a nutrient. The best nutrient setup as far as ratio goes is 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates and 20% healthy fats. For good sources of protein, I recommend eating lots of lean meats and wild fish.

Dairy products like eggs and milk are also an excellent sources of protein but some people are allergic to dairy without even knowing it so you might want to find that out first.

Good sources of carbs are foods like wheat and brown rice. Whole wheat bread and wheat pasta are also great sources of complex carbs.

Complex carbs are better for you because they take longer to digest and so they are less likely to be stored as fat.

Strength Training

For strength training you can keep it very simple by doing push ups, crunches and pull-ups. These are all compound exercises that workout a whole range of muscles instead of just one muscle. The more muscles you work out, the more fat burning hormones your body releases that burn fat all day round even when you aren’t working out.

Strength training is crucial in building lean muscle because it creates the perfect metabolic environment for building lean muscle; the faster your metabolism, the easier you can go about building muscle fast.


Cardio is where the calorie burning really gets done and in order to be building lean muscle in the right way, you need to be burning more calories than you consume daily and cardio is perfect for this.

For cardio I recommend doing a 15-30 minute jog. If a jog tires you out within the first 5 minutes, you should do a brisk walk instead. | Newsphere by AF themes.
