Hello readers. Welcome back to my post, in my previous post I discussed why people take a break for more than 7 days. This post will be a continuation where I will tell you how you can still maintain muscle growth when taking a long break.
Dieting plays a key role in muscle growth and there is that saying that this aspect consists of 80% diet and 20% exercising. Protein foods are the muscle building blocks so when you consume this especially in high quantity as a result contributes to increased muscle growth. In addition there are also certain foods which contains high calories which increases muscle mass. This is an important factor because in order to build size it is not only by lifting heavy weights, it is the number of calories you consume that equally contributes to muscle size.
If you ever get a some small spare time then you can do a number of different quick body workouts without any weights or equipment at home potentially before you go to sleep or when you wake up. Such exercises can be: press ups for chest; triceps dips; biceps press ups, shoulder press ups and squats/lunges and burpes.
Walking is another great way to build muscle. Now you probably might think I am crazy as walking is seen as a way of burning calories, losing weight, and building cardio. However this can allow you to build your muscles because once you step this puts pressure on the quads, hamstring, calves, glutes and abdominals. When you move our legs forward this allows us to engage our quads and hamstrings and when we extend our ankles this extends our calfs. This aspect can be very useful in particular to those who commute to work and back. For example they can walk from their house to the station.
Many people believe that you will lose muscle growth if you neglect your training for a while which is understandable. However as long as you are eating right combined with walking and doing some small body workouts at home then you can still maintain and build muscle growth.
I want to sincerely thank you for taking out time to read this post. In the next post I will confess to you all the muscle group I neglect.
