Proteins Build Muscles

Professional body-builders eat more than a dozen boiled eggs, without the yellow part, daily. They do it in order to get proteins, as it’s required for building muscles and to retain them as well. Protein is utilized by the body to boost bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

A “macronutrient” protein is a lot similar to fats and carbohydrates, but body can’t store protein. Body cannot build protein, it has to be injected externally by eating protein-filled foods. You have to eat protein in a gap of a few hours daily, to build muscle. Protein doesn’t get stored in the body, you have to supply it to the body daily through food and supplements.

What’s your daily Protein requirement?

More protein you take will get you more muscles is a big lie which shouldn’t be relied upon. A realistic protein intake has to be your choice if you are serious about it. U.S Department of Health and Human Services state:

Active men and teenage boys must get a minimum seven ounces protein.

Young children from age 2 to 6, women, old persons, need 5 ounces protein.

Older children, teen girls, active women, and men must take six ounces protein in a day.

Don’t overload yourself with Proteins

Be considerate and control your protein intake as blindly going for a high-protein/low-carb diet can be a big blunder. A condition called Ketosis can develop, wherein the body burns fat instead of carbs to produce energy. Appetite sees a big drop due to Ketosis, and fluids too get eliminated thus there is a big loss of water. Water weight reduction can cause dehydration which itself is a dangerous condition.

Eat the recommended protein quota and don’t overdo; you’ll not only build muscle but also do it in a healthy way. Best of luck!

Buddy push-ups is an old exercise for muscle development where there is zero use of gym equipment. It’s a versatile exercise that works varied muscle groups simultaneously, and you can tailor it to target desired muscle groups. Biceps run from inside section of upper arm in a straight line through elbow to the shoulder. The entire arm muscles are toned with push-ups but the triceps running on the back of the upper arm get maximum benefits.

Old style Push-up

While doing an old-style push-up your palms should rest flat on the floor right below the shoulders. Your abdominal muscles should be kept rigid and back has to be erect. Use your arms to lift yourself off the floor without taxing the wrists. The muscle you get to target with an old-style push-up is your chest, arms, shoulders, and abdomen.


Biceps Push-Up

Let both of your hands touch the floor and rest there; the distance or width to be maintained is 3 inches. Lift your body so that the tension is applied on the front section of the upper arms, at the location of your biceps. Two sets of 20 to 40 inside push-ups is your target.

Isn’t it a nice way of starting on a biceps building routine? Start it and feel the biceps getting beautiful as you advance!
