Welcome to Musclebuildingplans

Welcome to Muscle Building Plans, feel free to check out some the great content and resources I have on this topic.

Muscle Building as with any worthwhile aim needs to follow a program designed to gradually improve muscle structure and tone. It cannot be achieved simply by grabbing any set of weights and moving them around.

For every muscle in the body involved with movement there is a balancing muscle. eg Biceps and Triceps

When Biceps are contracted Triceps relax and vice versa. They must both be built up at the same time.

Well defined muscles burn fat and this helps keep weight under control.

BMI (Body Mass Index) readings are a guide but are not the ultimate indicator of good health. Muscle weighs more than fat so a person with well defined muscles will necessarily have a slight higher BMI than normal.

Your Diet needs to be considered and a good healthy eating plan would involve protein at every meal, balanced  carbs and low fat intake. Remember there are good fats and bad fats. Try to limit consumption of animal fats.  eg skin removed from chicken and trim fat away from beef

Well defined muscles allow flexibility and easy movement. You can lift everyday items with little effort and are less likely to cause an injury.

Good health is more likely to be present in a fit person than an unfit person

So by all means seek to build muscle but at the same time follow a good healthy diet.

It will all come together if you have a good structured plan and follow it.

Your plan will have to be structured around

  1. Your current fitness level
  2. Your lifestyle
  3. Your time constraints
  4. Any medical problems or disabilities you might have.

Your goal should be to be as fit and healthy as you can be.  This website will provide you with access to advice and products which you can use is putting together your fitness and wellness plan
