Is Bulk Really Helps To Build Muscle ? Why And Why Not ?

Don’t we have to eat to gain volume? I think we all agree on this. If you do bulk exercise naturally, if you do not consume enough calories and nutrients to achieve muscle growth, you cannot achieve a significant muscle growth.

If you do not consume enough nutrients, your body cannot achieve the highest level of muscle growth. In fact, if you don’t eat enough, you will lose muscle against working too hard. So it seems logical to stick to your diet to grow. The more you eat, the more you grow, right?

Don’t be so sure if you want to! Actually, the more you eat, the bigger you will grow. However; this doesn’t mean you will get more muscular.

I believe that one of the biggest mistakes a person makes when trying to maintain an aesthetic and muscular physique is this: consuming too much junk food (garbage) by putting too much fat into the body to promote more muscle growth.

As you know, if you are doing this naturally, your body has a limited muscle development capacity. The amount of muscle you can develop depends on how much your body can synthesize the protein consumed to build new muscle. This (your body’s capacity for protein synthesis) depends on your natural testosterone level.

You can eat as much as you want; however, you simply cannot naturally change your body’s limit for protein synthesis. Eating more food than your body can turn into muscle will only provide you with more fat.

An analogy

I can give an example of a construction worker to explain this phenomenon.

MUST READ  Rest Time Between Sets for Muscle Development

Imagine that your muscles are a house and you are trying to build. Bricks used for house construction are also a. It symbolizes acids, and the money you give the workers (so they can do the job) symbolizes carbohydrates and fats.

Finally, workers represent factors in the protein synthesis process (mostly testosterone). Let the truck that brings the brick to the workers represent insulin (which plays an important role in delivering nutrients to the muscle cells).

If you don’t give the workers enough bricks (protein) they won’t be able to build the building fast enough. As a result, the house cannot be built quickly. In fact, if you don’t pay the workers, they will go crazy and go on strike and start to demolish the house. (catabolism. extremely small calorie intake). Therefore, not consuming enough protein or calories to support muscle growth provides a slower gain.

Let’s have a look now; What happens if you send more bricks (more protein) to the workers? Thus, they build the house faster because there is no shortage of raw materials (bricks). However this

Posting more bricks at the point does not mean the house will be built faster, because workers can only do that much if they have enough time. For example; If your staff can process 1000 bricks a day, it is useless to give them 2000 bricks. It exceeds their work capacity. Therefore, excess bricks would be wasted.

In the same situation, if you increase the salary of the workers (the amount of calories), their motivation increases and they start to build the house faster. However, as with bricks, a raise in workers’ wages may not have an effect. Workers will reach their physical limits. When this limit is reached, increase their salary as much as you want, they cannot add more bricks to the house.

What I’m trying to say is that you don’t build muscle by loading your body with nutrients. Nutritional and calorie supplements work until they reach the point of satisfaction. After that, every extra calorie is stored as fat.

Therefore, the more you eat, the more volume you gain, although the thesis is true, the extra pounds will be in the form of fat, not muscle tissue.
