3 Natural Ways To Accelerate Muscle Growth
We’ve all been in this situation before; we look at ourselves in the mirror and just wish our muscles were a bit bigger and more defined. We feel like we put in a lot of work in the gym, so it’s not fair that our results aren’t as great as some of the units you see trampling around the gym floor.
Of course, most of the massive guys in the gym are packed full of so many steroids they could open up their own pharmacy. The question is; can your speed up muscle growth naturally? The answer is; yes, and here are a few ways you can do it:
Increase testosterone levels for more muscle growth. Image
Boost Your Testosterone
Have you ever wondered why men are naturally more muscular than women? It’s mainly to do with the amount of testosterone we produce compared to them. Testosterone is the primary hormone behind muscle growth. As a result, if we produce lots of it, our muscles grow faster than someone with low testosterone levels. Consequently, if you want to accelerate muscle growth, then try boosting your testosterone. There are natural supplements on the market like Tongkat Ali – which is an extract of an Asian plant. Things like this help you raise your T levels without adding anything unnatural to your body. It can take a few weeks for your testosterone to lift itself, but the results after this are astonishing!

Improve Your Form
Loads of people have terrible form when they’re in the gym. Even some of the classic exercises like a bicep curl are done with bad form. Why does this matter? Because proper form means you take a muscle through the proper range of motion so it can contract and relax to its full extent. Getting an adequate stretch on a muscle is vital as it leads to more muscle fiber damage, which will result in more significant growth. In fact, your muscles will grow a lot faster if you lower the weight to a point where you can really crank out quality reps that your muscles are in full control of. Don’t assume that lifting heavy is always beneficial – particularly if your form is off. By all means, go as heavy as you can, but make sure your form doesn’t suffer.

Rest Your Body
What’s the natural thing to do when you want to achieve muscle gains quickly? You work out more often and train pretty much every day. You think this helps as you can squeeze in two arm workouts a week, or two leg days a week. Surely, this means you’re overloading your muscles and helping them grow big and strong? Well, no, not really. If you don’t give your body the proper time to recover, then your muscles can’t grow properly. It’s recommended you have at least one rest day per week where you don’t train at all. As well as this, make sure you don’t train the same body part in consecutive days – give it time to heal. For example, train arms on Monday, then legs on Tuesday, then maybe chest on Wednesday, back on Thursday, and shoulders on Friday.
You don’t have to turn to unnatural things like steroids to supercharge your muscle growth. Try all of these ideas, and you’ll soon turn heads on the beach this summer.
