5 REASONS WHY YOU DO NOT GAIN MUSCLE MASS
- Anthony Campbell
- You eat the same lunch and with the same amounts, since your puberty.
- You still consume 30 grams of protein and 30 grams of post-training carbohydrates.
- You are under-trained. You do not train your muscles fairly frequently.
- You are too fat to maximize your muscle gains. In fact, the more fat you are, the less your body will be able to create muscle mass because your testosterone level is not at its best and your cortisol level (hormone adjustment or commonly referred to as hormone Of stress) is too high. You are then more in a catabolic state (loss of muscle) than anabolic (muscle gain).
- Your workouts are too long.
Training over an hour is often counterproductive, since the body secretes too much cortisol, which lowers your testosterone level. To counter this situation, keep your workouts short and intense, between 45 minutes and an hour. Your results will surprise you.
