How do you build muscle quickest way?

ClassBrain Response:

Wouldn't we all like to know! Actually it's really simple. Frequent exercise on a regular basis combined with plenty of rest and good nutrition are the keys to good health as well as building muscle. You really need all three to get good results. You can exercise all you want but if you don't feed your body with the right fuel and get enough rest all your hard work will go to waste.

First you have to decide which kind of muscle you want to build. Long, lean muscle are best built by aerobic exercise like distance running, cycling and swimming. Large, thick muscles are best built by anaerobic exercise like weight lifting and other resistance exercises.

To quickest way to build large muscles is to use progressive weight training. Progressive means that as soon as you get used to lifting a certain amount of weight, you add a little more. Over time you will get stronger and you muscles will adapt by getting larger to handle the added weight. You see the human body will adapt to whatever stress you regularly put it through. Weightlifters grow large muscles and runners grow long, lean muscles.

But there is a catch! If you stop exercising on a regular basis you will see that your muscles will lose all the strength and size.
