The following article sheds light on the phenomena of muscle building accelerating and inhibiting factors, external aids in the form of drug and injectables. Recommended methods and all other aspects of muscle building.
Muscles are the fibrous band or bundles of fibrous tissues attached to the bones and are responsible for bringing about movements for example calf muscles or performing certain functions for example pumping blood by cardiac (heart) muscles. They also function primarily as the source of power for the body. There are different types of muscles for and the categorization is as follows:
- Comprises of group of muscles responsible for movement and overall external part of the skeleton.
- Responsible for the functioning of the organ, located in heart.
- Present in the lumen of the vessels and lining of the viscera for example in the walls of the arterioles or venules.
REASONS TO BUILD MUSCLES:
There can be many reasons to build muscles, some of the most common reasons are as follows:
- Body builders
- Fashion models
- People after recovering from debilitating illnesses for example cancer patients after chemo-therapy sessions.
- After severe burn injury
- Individuals who want to tone their body.
Muscle building is the process in which muscles are strengthen or their mass is increased in the form of muscular hypertrophy, in which muscle mass is increased. Commonly used methods are as follows:
- Strength training
- Diet modification
- Protein shakes
- Supplemental aid
Each method will be discussed in detail in the coming sub-headings;
Strength training is the most commonly used and the oldest method to build muscle mass and it comprises of the anaerobic exercises and fitness training at the gym, a fitness expert is advised to help you with building muscles. Three basic principles that help to grow a muscle are mechanical tension, metabolic stress and muscle damage. Targeted training to build specific type and area of muscle is also there and generalized training to improve the overall tone of the body is also there. Also known as resistance training, it comprises of physical exercises to increase the strength and endurance of the muscles, it commonly comprises of lifting weights and other different types of training techniques are also there to ensure increment in muscle mass for example isometrics and polymetric. Most recommended training exercises are as follows:
- Knee dominant (luges and squats)
- Hip dominant (deadlifts and hinges)
- Pulling movements (pull-ups)
- Pushing movements (dips and push-ups)
- Cardio (running and brisk walking)
Certain dietary changes are also required to ensure and speed up the process of muscle building, diet rich in protein and low in carbohydrates is required combined with good fats to ensure muscle build up. Increase in the intake of fish eggs and meat is primarily required as it ensures bulk provision of protein. Proper breakfast. Alongside whole foods should be preferred, with plenty of water and proper sleep pattern.
As the science has done advancements so many other ways along with the natural ways are there to accelerate the process of muscle building, it includes supplements to enhance endurance of the body hence more time can be spent in the gym and more benefits can be reaped. Different nutritional supplements and protein shakes and energy drinks are present in the market to aid in building muscles.
Different drugs are also available in the market to aid in muscle building most of them are anabolic steroids and some are not steroids but steroids like drugs which help in strengthening muscles, most of the steroids are banned because of the adverse effects they impose and the post complication and life-threatening effects on the body, and mostly are banned in most of the countries around the world and are purchased through illegal means that are through online vendors and through black markets. But should be avoided and only approved drugs should be taken and in the prescribed manners and after proper consultation with an expert. Some most commonly used drugs for purpose of muscle building are as follows:
Many other options are still in the market but we will discuss these four briefly:
Anavar, chemical name oxandrolone it is androgenic anabolic steroid. It helps with the weight gain by building protein blocks and also enhances bone strength. It acts by retaining nitrogen in the body specifically at muscle site thus promoting muscle mass. People specifically females buy anavar for bulking cycles.
Dinabol is the brand name of methandienone. It also belongs to the category of anabolic androgenic steroid. People widely buy dianabol for its cost effectiveness. It was the first commercially introduced steroid. It acts by increasing the testosterone production thus increase in muscle gain, strength of muscles and energy levels are noticed along with increase in endurance. However, dianabol steroids are now banned for their adverse effects on the heart, kidney and liver so the legal alternative is there with the brand name of D-bal.
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone present in males and responsible for the primary and secondary sexual developments., such as testes and muscle mass and body hairs. To build muscle mass testosterone from the exogenous source are taken in the form of pills and is widely used for increasing muscle mass and strength. Testosterone steroids should be used with care as they can interfere with the hormonal levels of the body.
Clenbuterol is the sympathomimetic amine and used as a bronchodilator. Bu it has also some androgenic properties by which they help in muscle building and increase in skeletal muscle bulk. They also accelerate the basal metabolic rate thus helping in burning the calories or excess fat. Individuals buy clen over the counter to promote muscle gain but is not advised by the experts.
Muscle gain is possible through various ways but one should opt for healthier and organic way. Three amazing ways to gain muscle mass is through strength training, healthier and modified diet along with approved steroids.
