Looking to increase your muscle gain from your workout? Here are some tips that will work wonders for you:
1. Keep yourself hydrated
When you’re well-hydrated, you have greater blood volume and fluid to fill your veins and arteries. This amplifies the pumped-up effect for your muscles. Drink at least 2-3 cups of water in the hours leading up to or during your workout. Also, keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
2. Get more carbs to increase muscle fullness
Consuming enough carbs before your workout is necessary. It’s because your muscles need glycogen- a form of carbohydrate stored in the muscles and liver. Glycogen not only fuels your body with energy but it also makes your muscles look big and full.
3. Try holding a squeeze
Experts suggest not to make your workout motions mechanical. Try slowing down the speed of each rep and focus on the mind-muscle connection while you contract. Make the most of it by consciously contracting your working muscles and squeeze your muscles at the peak of each rep.
4. Add supersets
Superset is a way of training that helps maximize muscle pumps. It’s done by stacking exercises back-to-back with no rest. It increases your blood flow in the working muscles as fatigue builds up and you get bigger muscles.
Try and include these pointers in your next workout and see how they work for you.
