At the beginning of your muscle-building journey, you may think getting bigger sounds easy: "All I need to do is push and pull some weights to look like my favorite athletes on Bodybuilding.com!" In reality, however, many people struggle to build muscle and carve a leaner, fitter body. This isn't because they're not trying, but more likely because they don't have a solid plan or understanding of the process.

Although there's nothing easy about building muscle and losing fat, it doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, I can help you do it! As a sports nutritionist I have worked with collegiate, elite, and professional athletes, as well as bodybuilders, figure, bikini and physique competitors.

More importantly, I've also worked with people like you who were just getting started or struggling to make meaningful progress. I often diagnose those struggling to meet their fitness goals with what I call "MMS," or Muscle Mismatch Syndrome. MMS is common to those whose endgame aspirations are out of balance with clear, practical know-how. Symptoms of MMS include general confusion, frustration, and early goal abandonment.

Although MMS is common, all my experience has pushed me toward a simple prescription: good information! Yep, the best way to combat MMS is a little education. To make that education readily available, I've put together a list of muscle-building laws. These 10 laws are clear and usable, so you can easily implement them into your fitness plans.
