If you want to gain muscle fast, you ought to have specific protein eating habits, which should be two things: you should eat plenty of high protein types of food and you should eat small portions of it, around six to seven times in a day, around three hours between every single meal. The reason behind this is that eating plenty of smaller portions will keep your metabolism rate going and that you will not feel starved and end up eating more than what is necessary in every meal. By keeping your body fueled with small portions of highly fueled and protein rich food all throughout the day, your body maintains its high energy levels without the sudden drop of energy that results in sleepiness and tiredness in people. There are also several muscle building tips that you can research either online or through consultation with your doctor or fitness trainer; this is important in order to avoid complications.

If you are not sure how low you must go, try using a real chair as your guide; hold your squat right above the chair and avoid sitting on it. When you reach the right chair height, make sure your thighs are parallel to the floor, hold the squat, and count to five, and then stand back up. One more basic step in muscle building exercises is the bench press. Lifting weights can be an extra challenge that could help you build lean muscle mass.

To do bench presses, you will need to lie on a support bench as you take off the weight and lower it to your chest. Get a bench press or support bench to lie down on and grab the weight. Holding the weight with both hands, you will need to lower it to your chest, push it back up, hold it at the top, and lower it back down again. Bench presses could cause a slight burn sensation but it should not be painful; if you feel pain, it means you are pushing it too far that could eventually result in injury.

Protein enriched foods are also good as weight gain supplements for people who are looking for ways to increase their weight.

While trying out new exercises and new diets can seem exciting, make sure that you check with your physician first before you do in order to avoid health complications.
