Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


Almost everyone during our training might have hit a time when we stop making progress or we may say that our body has hit a plateau. When it comes to that, there are many factors that could be the cause of it. Here are some of the main things that could be keeping you away from gaining muscle.

(1) NOT EATING ENOUGH: You need to eat to grow! Simple as that. If you are not taking your macros,no matter how hard you train in the gym ,you will not grow. Be in a caloric surplus diet,add 500 calories to your daily maintenance.Being in a caloric surplus will help you in gaining.

(2) TOO STRESSED: Increase in your stress hormone reduces the testosterone levels of your body. Stressing can have more of an effect than you think. It can cause real harm to the body. Try to best to stay calm and relax. Don't overthink.   

(3) NOT SLEEPING ENOUGH: Proper rest is very important for recovery of your body.The muscles are repaired and made while you sleep, which is why plenty of it is so necessary to build muscle. Get a healthy sleep of 8-9 hours.   

(4) NO SET PLAN: Maybe you are just switching your routines evey week.You need to find a program and follow it consistently. This is the best way to track your progress over time.   

(5) NOT TRYING TO GET STRONGER: You need to improve on your lifts consistently to grow.Mark my words Size follows strength ,if your strength is increasing you will gain muscle.Whether it's more reps, more weight or more sets every session, you must improve to gain muscle.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
