If putting on lean mass was easy, you'd see a lot more hulking people walking around. Putting on quality muscle requires consistency, dedication, and a lot of nutrient dense food. Working hard in the gym is not enough; you must also work hard in the kitchen.

Meal planning and preparation is essential for forging a muscular physique. The old adage "you are what you eat", holds true when building lean muscle. To pack on serious muscle, you need to consume more calories than you burn throughout the day. Consuming healthy calories, eaten at the right frequency is also crucial.

Keys To Your Nutrition Success

Don't Short Yourself On Calories

The most important rule in mass building is this: If you're working hard in the gym, you must work harder in the kitchen. If you short yourself on calories, you're also shorting yourself on size and mass gains - you know, the mass every cheerleader wants in a guy.

Sure it's going to be tough cramming in yet another protein shake or tuna fish sandwich between classes, but it's essential if getting big and jacked is in your future. So take your time, pack some lunches, and get the calories you know you need.
