Growing Pains: Tony Tiamiyu teaches you about your mucles

Many people know HOW to build muscle, but not many know WHY lifting heavier weights makes bigger muscles. The science behind it is simple.
You should first remember that the human body will do all that it can to repair itself to a healthy state.
When you lift a heavy weight, your muscles go through stress, which causes very small tears in your muscles. Ever felt sore the day after the gym? You are sore because your muscles are torn. But here's the best part: they are repairing themselves! Just like a scab on the outside of your body that helps heal wounds and scratches on the skin, your body repairs tears inside your body. Thus, just as a scar is a deformed or different part of your skin, your repaired muscles become larger. So, since your muscle has now grown in size, it has compensated for the weight you once lifted. You will now be able to lift a heavier weight.
Bodybuilders gain muscle quickly by constantly putting their muscles through stress. They lift very heavy weights and change their workouts frequently so that they shock their muscles.
In order for your body to repair your muscles, you must help it out. Make sure you get plenty of rest and recuperation, about 48 hours between workouts of the same muscle groups. Also, you need to make sure you're getting the right amount of protein to help repair, complex carbohydrates to have energy to get through your workouts, and a healthy source of fat. Protein can be in the form of powder or meat about 1-1.2 grams per each pound you weigh). Complex carbs are such carbs that aren't refined. And Whole Wheat (and sometimes whole grain) products will do. Just make sure "whole wheat flour" is within the first 4 ingredients on the label. You can also use fruit to fulfill the carb requirement. Healthy fats include avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seeds. And always make sure you are getting a balanced diet.
I hope I have enlightened you on the process of muscle gain. The body is a wonderful machine!
