It is often been said that there are no shortcuts to success.. This is true in the art of muscle building, just as with any other endeavor. Of course, there are methods that some people may think of as a "shortcut" to successfully building muscles – but those always come with consequences. Whether it is an extreme and unhealthy diet, or even ingesting illegal substances like steroids, there is no free lunch in nature. Whatever harmful things you do to your body to gain a short-term advantage will always end up hurting you 10 times more in the long run!
Here are three tips to help you build muscle the right way, and stay healthy and strong over the long-term, not just for a short period of time.
First, make sure that you are working with a professional. There is a reason why Olympians do not act as their own coach. When you are undertaking a physical feat like building muscles, that is going to significantly change the composition of your body, it is not smart or effective to be in charge of that process entirely on your own. You need to have an expert guiding you who will tell you the right things to do and then monitor your progress along the way.
Secondly, make sure that you do not go outside of the advice of the expert you of hired to help guide you along the path in the interest of getting faster results. Remember, although you may be working toward a short-term goal such as an upcoming competition, the ultimate goal with any health and wellness pursuit is to live a longer and healthier life, well into old age. Don't do anything in the pursuit of something like a competition – which will soon be over – that will haunt you physically for years and years to come.
Third, make sure that you are eating a healthy and balanced diet. Of course, it may be strict – but it should never be extreme. Extreme diets can be equally as harmful on your body as outside substances can be, and in some cases they can even be more catastrophic. The human body is meant to function on a variety of macronutrients, and depriving it completely of one or more of those can have harmful effects both in the long term in the short term.
In conclusion, there is a right way and a long way to build muscle. Although for a short time, it can appear as if the "wrong" way is more effective because people who employ it get faster results, it quickly becomes clear that it is viewed as the "wrong" way for a reason – those people have consequences that destroy their bodies, and in many cases their lives. No, it is so much better to employ the services of a respected professional who puts you in your health first and then abide by every piece of advice that that person guides you with.
