How long does it take to build muscle?

Would you be rather be told wrong information that would make you happy rather than being told less pleasant information that would help you reach your goals??

of course you want to know the truth and the truth is that body building takes time.
Don't expect to see amazing results after a month or even three months.


Body building is not the type of sport that can help you change your body shape by exercising at the end of April in order to look good in summer.

I know tens of people who come to the gym 2 month before the summer hoping to be in shape then leave disappointed at June when they found that nothing changed.

What is the best way to build muscle?

Incorporating strength training into a person’s workout is a great way to build muscle tone, strength, and overall fitness levels.

Strength training involves using weights, although this does not have to mean dumbbells, squat racks, or machines.

Strength training can be done using a person’s own body weight or with resistance bands, for example.

Some common strength training methods include:

  •     body weight exercises, such as push-ups, pull-ups, squats, and lunges
  •     resistance band exercises
  •     weights that can include dumbbells, kettle balls, cans, or water jugs
  •     weight machines, such as those used in a gym or home gym

Typically, it is recommended that strength training is done at least 2 days a week and includes all major muscle groups of the body. These major muscle groups include those in the arms, legs, back, and chest.

An individual should be careful not to overdo it with the weights they use to avoid unnecessary injury. It is important to gradually increase the amount and type of weight used to build strength.

It is recommended that 8 to 10 strength training exercises are done 2 or more days a week. These should be completed in groups of 8 to 12 repetitions using the 2 to 3 sets principle. This means that a person repeats the movement of each exercise 8 to 12 times and then again 2 to 3 times.

As the body increases its strength, a person may find it easy to complete the 8 to 12 repetitions using the same weight.

Some in the fitness world say that an individual can progress to heavier weights once they are able to complete more than 12 repetitions using the same weight.
