How does it build muscles?

#1 Postby erikjacobs » Sat Dec 13, 2008 3:56 am

Can anybody explain me how can I build muscles. I have gone to many health clubs but not found any good result. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Your muscles will grow if you

1. Provide them with adequate stimulation
2. Provide them with adequate nutrition, particularly enough protein and enough calories
3. Provide them with adequate rest - between workouts and regular, adequate sleep.

If your muscles aren't growing or growing fast enough you need to improve upon at least one of these areas.

This site is a great place to get videos of how to perform exercises. It also has a great selection of how-to books for many athletic pursuits. The books are easy to read, but based on really good information:

To be honest it will take time. you at least have to work 1 years to get a nice bod with proper routine and diet. I will suggest you to do about 140 setups every night. Do about 140 reps of your dumbbells. And 140 press ups.
