A Muscle Gain Workout (Part 1) :

Muscle gain workout programs can make or break your weight loss, power-lifting, bodybuilding, or athletic dreams. If you want to lose weight, it will be VERY hard to do so without some form of weight training. If you want to power-lift, It's quite obvious that more muscle would mean more strength. If you plan on bodybuilding, The more lean muscle you have, the better you look. If you're an athlete, fast-twitch muscle combined with explosiveness and speed will make you a force to be reckoned with on the field.

If you plan on losing weight, a muscle gain workout is essential to your success. While this may seem counterintuitive, especially to women, as they do not want to appear too "bulky," I will explain why lifting weights is paramount to success. Most people think that losing weight requires eating a leaf of lettuce ever couple of hours and running until your legs feel like rubber. While cardiovascular exercise is very important, it does not have the metabolic effects that weight training does. A single strenuous weight training session will stimulate the metabolism for the next 24-48 hours, burning more calories. A rudimentary formula I'm sure you've encountered before seems fitting here:

Calories In less than Calories Out = Weight Loss

Assuming you are eating right, this weight loss will be fat, and not muscle.

A muscle gain workout routine must go hand in hand with proper nutrition. You can lift all you want, but if you eat big macs all day, you probably won't see results (unless you want to gain inordinate amounts of weight, in which case, hit up McDonald's until your heart stops). A good rule of thumb is 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. For example, a 200-pound man should typically ingest 200 grams of protein every day. While this may seem difficult, it really isn't that hard, if you stretch it out through the course of a day. Say you eat 6 meals a day with 40 grams of protein in each meal (it's not that hard to find 40 grams of protein per meal), that is 240 grams right there.
