Eat healthily

Instead of fluctuating between calorie deficits and over consuming on the weekend, your goal should be to adhere to a sustainable diet. However, this doesn’t mean counting calories and starving yourself.

The volume of muscle and fat in your body is determined by the quality of food you consume. Aim to eat a variety of heathy foods each week that will supply you with good sources of carbs, fats and protein.

Fundamentals of muscle gain

There are four main factors that will allow your body to increase muscle and reduce fat. These are diet, training, supplementation and sleep. The easiest to control are the latter two, however, to reach your goals diet and training must be mastered.

Limit the cardio and increase the weight sessions

One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to burn fat is going overboard on the cardio. Firstly, hitting the treadmill too often or for too long will lengthen your recovery time, diminishing your ability to lift weights and build muscle. Secondly, excessive cardio won’t just burn fat will also cut into the muscle that you’re looking to develop.

 Train using weights 4-5 times a week at a moderate intensity, keeping your rest period between sets to under 120 seconds. Take at least two rest days during the week and this will allow your body time to recover and grow new muscle.

Rest is best

Sleep is crucial and studies have found that people who get less that eight hours sleep are more likely to store excess fat. A solid night sleep for at least 5 days a week is essential for building muscle and helping you feel energized.
